Ever try killing one with a stick? You may go hungry.  :D

Hope their is a statue of limitations on this, sorry to say, yes, maybe I can claim self defense, back when I was young and stupid while coon hunting, my dog tangled with one and it was the only way to get them apart with out shooting the dog as they were rolling around. Though I have never eaten a porcupine, I have had raccoon and ground hog ( was cooked by some one else not me ) they weren't to bad. So faced with starvation, you bet ya, it's a meal...LOL.

There is a log home place about 14 miles from me. I tried to sell to them 10 years ago, but I couldn't afford to log the trees and pay them to take them. ::) Well, it wasn't that bad, but I'm not going to log for free and give them the logs.

I hear you, working for free just don't make sense. That's why I only mill for my self and a few close friends. Just can't compete with the influx of horse driving people moving in the area. If you have a mill, you might make logs for log homes and selling by the lineal foot of log. My neighbor built one with a Lynn Lumber mill and it a beauty.

Lincoln Logs doesn't buy logs, they mill their cabin logs from cants and use EWP. New England Log Homes used red pine for their cabins and milled top and bottom only.

They are still trying to clean up the NELH site 6 miles from me. I guess they used all kinds of nasty stuff to treat the logs.

I've sold small amount to a local wharf builder in the past. He pays $2 per linear foot and takes them down to a 9" top. Not a reliable market but it's nice to be able to get rid of them when I can. There are a few other small mills that buy it for pallets and landscape materials.

Red Pine is one of the few good markets we have in northern MN, mainly due to the Potlatch stud mill in Bemidji. They are almost always hungry for Red Pine. There's also a few smaller mills that saw 10-20' logs (Potlatch is mainly 8'). Pine pulp is always a challenge to get rid of for small producers.

I hate porcupines.  ;D

 It's not nice to have one of them quill dogs up above your head or even at face level with a brush saw in your hands. They get kinda mad and snarly. ;D

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to thin out his quills.  ;D

I have eaten porcupine once, there is a reason it is considered "survival food" :) It tastes like chicken seasoned with the nasty sweet pungent odor of porky. :-X I won't repeat that experiment again unless I am actually starving.

I usually don't bug them unless they are getting too close to the house, I don't want the dogs getting a snout full. When I was a kid I used to pull the quills our dogs would get stuck with, the last time it happened it was to my bird dog. That big pansy wouldn't let me pull them and I ended up having to bring him to the vet. That was around $300 :(  Sometimes I stop and think about some of the vet bills, $300 here, $1000 there, when I was growing up we had mutts and strays, we were poor and we NEVER brought anything to the vet. It just got better or died, but then we lived right on a highway and nothing  lived long enough to getake sick. There was a lot more trucking on the road back then, it was tough on stray dogs. Different times.

As said by barbender vet bills are expensive. We used to have an old semi-retired vet in our town. Highest bill I ever paid him was $10.00. Had him put three stiches in a dog one time and he charged me $3.00.

Took a poodle up to him one time that had been run over by a big mid seventys Pontiac Bonneville. Dog was not hurt but she bit the crap out of one of my fingers in getting her. Showed him my hand and he immediately started putting vet medicine on it and treating it. Have seen him go back and get animal medicine (antibotic pills) and take them his self. He has passed away now. Heck of a good person.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.
