@Pulphook  Enough of your trashing of this topic.  thecfarm started it to tell us about something he truly enjoys. Many of us do. Including myself. We DO NOT CARE WHAT YOU THINK about this because you obviously do not care what we think. If you did, you would keep your flippin fingers from typing crap that is obviously annoying other members. You are done here. Kapeesh?  Don't make me make you done everywhere on the Forestry Forum. Don't be crying about being flamed here when it was me addressing you.  That is not flaming. I own the joint. Understand??

Pulphook left a great big greeting card on the forum this morning. I happened to be setting here when he hit the post button. I think @Raider Bill was the only one else to see it before I removed it. I also removed Pulphook. Permanently.

Well I guess I am safe to say,I got some more apples. This time they was just dumped by the dumpster. I would say about 25 gallons worth. I put out 5 gallons when I got home at 6:30pm. Checked the furnace around 9:30 and the apples was all gone.

I'm worried about our U.P. deer. The eastern end of the U.P. where I hunt is getting hammered with winter since Christmas.  I got a message on facebook from one of the neighbors up there asking if I was planning on coming up at all this winter.  I responded back saying I didn't think so, Why? do you need something brought up?  And he says no, just wanted to let you know the snow is now over your gate pipes.  I got a picture from him he took from the road about a month ago that wasn't quite that deep. Over the gate chains and up to the top of the porch. He says the poles are gone now.  In the picture the cable attaches to the posts about crotch high.

Nah, but it will be wet for a spell. If you could get up a 100ft high at the cabin, you could see lake Huron to the south, and the Saint Mary's river heading for Lake Superior to the North. Lots of room for the melt to go. :)

I would imagine the cedar is getting a good high prune this year.

The few cedars I have behind the house are trimmed up to 5' or so. They haven't been touched for a few years. When I was out tonight putting out corn and sunflower, I noticed that a row of 10' high white pines were also trimmed up to head height. The deer look pretty healthy this year besides a couple fawns that showed up last week, they are a little gaunt. We feed corn,sunflower and pumpkin from end of Nov. til Spring thaw. I've never seen them go after the pine before, but I do remember in the late 80's my Dad shot a nice buck that had a stomach chock full of pine needles, it was tradition to take a peak at what the animal was surviving on. Even as a little kid I remember thinking that was an odd diet?

glad I don't work in an ER near them.  What do you bet the guy filming is missing and arm and a leg.  Ads new meaning to the phrase "costing and arm and a leg"  sorry to clarify, I watched the next video of guys running a huge band mill, in Vietnam and pushing it by hand and wearing sandals, on top of a 6 foot diam. log.

Lynn,

  Your sign reminded me we have taken pictures of road signs all over the world where we vacationed. One of our most unique ones was near Capetown in South Africa that said something to the effect "No stopping in this area as car jackings are common". You guessed it - we had to stop and get a picture of the sign. ???
