Default What is this?

I recently moved to North Dakota and spent some time today putting some trail cams out on BLM. While finding my little honey holes to set up cameras I ran into this thing. When I saw it I figured it was a feeder of some sort, but upon a closer look I saw no evidence of that! Thoughts?
Not sure how to flip the image on here, sorry folks.

Lots of beehives around, but this thing is open, hallow and empty. I thought water collection maybe, but shot that down based on the opening. There are moose in the area if that helps anyone.

They put the end of the moose call down in there. It's like a echo chamber, draws em in from miles away.
Hmmmmmm.....I should market that here in Texas. On the low side, you could probably sale 5 million, to this new generation.

^^^^^ Purely conjecture.

The old weather info stations used to have a rain collector that looks a lot like that, don't know what the internals should look like though.

North Korea's L'il Kim's fallout shelter. Now that he is AWOL, he was most likely close by. You just didn't see him.
