Muffler Man Bunyan

The Hosmer Muffler Man was missing as of Feb 2, 2022. We drove by twice but could not spot him at his reported location east of Hwy 3. Maybe he hibernates for the winter?

He may be gone.

Muffler Man Bunyan with Custom Head

I recently became aware of a 15-foot-tall Muffler Man lumberjack with a non-standard head in Hosmer. The giant stood in nearby Fernie for over 40 years outside OK Tire. When the business closed in 2008 the lumberjack was purchased by Sandra and David Barrett and moved to their home. It is not known what happened to his original head or how he got the current replacement.
