So I found this a while back in a field near my house. I'm pretty sure it's a foot peg or step of some sort but from what? If I had to guess I'd say some sort of farm equipment but being a California native I don't have much experience in such things. What do you guys think?

My guess is that it is from the power company. Perhaps California Electric or California Edison. It appears to be a tensioning cleat or something like that. Or as you proposed, it could be a climbing foot peg.

Neat find anyways, I usually just end up with bottles, the best one being a Jack Daniels bottle from about 1880

I love hunting for old bottles. I wish old stuff was easier to find out here on the west coast.
