The point comes in handy to stick in the grounds if there is nothing to lean the peavey against.
That point really helps to pry the logs apart. 
But as I said way back in my other post on this thread, it's a region thing.

I don't understand about prying logs apart. Why would you have to do that? If two logs are against each other just use your cant hook and roll one away. I must be missing something.

Working a log deck by hand or logs on the ground you 'jump' them all the time with the peavy point. Logs don't roll straight and using a wedge block and turning the log against it is more work than prying or popping with the point. Go to a log rolling contest and watch.

I also use it to pry the logs apart behind the 3 point winch to get the chains out sometimes.
