I noticed a bunch of sawdust piles on my stored firewood under my deck.

I'm guessing rodents. We don't have any mice, but I'm certain they're out there.

Any ideas what it might be and how to minimize damage to my firewood?

It's not fine, chewed. I moved the rack away from the house, but I have to find a permanent home for it.

Surprisingly, the 10 to 12 logs in the back of my yard, from the 3 trees I took down have not been touched by the rodents.

I need to rent a log splitter
You could look up someone who does "dump runs" and just cart that wood away. Wood that's not going to be burned this winter (or last winter) will sooner or later become home or food for something living. That's nature. In the forest it just rots away by all kinds of parasites.

I’ve heard some say AR-15s will take care of the varmints.
Varmint is an awesome word.

It's a woodchuck. How much would did he chuck? People want to know.

Powder post beetles can do a number on wood. They tend to live just under the bark and will leave crazy looking trails all over.
