thanks for the critter report Corley 5 , I remember last year about this time when I joined the forestry forum and seen your logging pictures showing I think your maple tree harvest , thats quite a selection of quality you got , all I got here is oak and ash but anything is possible with a good air nailer  ;D. Someday I would like to stop in and see your shop and sawmill but when I travel my old truckin instincts kick in and I like put my brain on auto pilot and never stop except for fuel and a big mac until I get to where I gotta be , sure would be a treat to see your beautiful trees and thanks for the invite ! I am not having much luck trying to buy some pine right now so I will continue with the white oak stuff, my new 48 inch 36 tooth simonds sawblade is ready to go get at the saw shop so that should get me excited again ! hope you sell all your beautiful cedar logs !

Funny there's no moose down your way Corley. On the north side of the lakes from Saulte Sainte Marie, Thunderbay and Kanora Ontario the highway is posted all the way for moose crossing. And that stretch of the Trans-Canada highway is trechorous in itself snaking through the shield. When I was there last, it looked like one great big clearcut.

There's a few moose in the eastern U.P. but none below da bridge.  HIstorically there were some here but brainworm is too prevalent now because of the high population of whitetails.  That's why they were planted around Marquette during the Great Moose Lift.  Not as many deer.


U.B.
A good nailer's definetely in order if you're using hardwood for framing.  A new blade sounds  8).  Grandpa always wished he'd bought a new blade when he got the Corley.  I had his 50" insert tooth hamered after I started running it and it does good.  I've got a 52" also that I need to get tuned up for a spare.  Grandpa liked the old solid tooth saws better.  I've got 4 or 5 of them hanging in the mill.  I'd like to see your set up too.  You ever go to the tractor show Rollag? http://www.rollag.com/  I see you're not too far away.  Dad and I went last year and were impressed.  I want to take Zach there in a couple years when he's little older so he'll appreciate it more.  Great sawmill set ups.

Yeah the brain worm did the woodland caribou in here also, years back. My great grandfather used to hunt them in the interior of the province around present day Mount Carleton Provincial Park. Travel was by canoe and pole or paddles. There is not as many deer here as there was 20 years ago though. Loss of over wintering habitat was a huge factor.
