Tree Stump Pistol Pete

Pistol Pete is carved into an old tree in the yard at Sigma Alpha Epsilon house on the campus of Oklahoma State University. Pistol Pete is the mascot of OSU.

Pistol Pete's firearm-friendliness would make him an anachronism on most college campuses, but he's been OSU's mascot since 1958.
