 :D :Dilog4u,
thats funny your right!!! I even had to ask permission to use her sled.
I figured to get a few ironwood poles and widdle a few axe/cant hook/hammer/fish bonker handles. freezing rain all day on top of 6-8 inches of yesterdays snow, may as well spend the day in the shop.

That model forwarder is very popular around here.
Old LT40HD, old log truck, old MM forklift, and several huskies.

logger, she might not be able to pull those ones but she would try if asked....i'm a lucky man.
Funny story, I went up to that landing the next day and some lazy SOB had blocked about 40 blocks off some yellow birch laying there. I left a couple treats if they come back for more.

we layed a few pieces of 1/2" solid bar between the logs, should put a crimp in their wood thieving and give them some time to think while their sharpening or buying a new chain. if the trail cams work I'll post pics, hopfully of sparks flying!!

I like your plan - just don't forget where you put those when it comes time for you to work on the piles!!

  A board with some nails driven through it, buried in the snow to tag them when they come back for their loot. Just don't forget it yourself !!!
