    There goes your weekend Wirecutter.
    Trade some of that Hickory; that lays down such sweet smoke, for a Chainsaw that suits what you need to do. Mebbe find a farmer who is about to butcher a hog, then you will have Hickory Smoked Bacon.* Oh my, wouldn’t that be grand?
    * Make sure the hog was corn fed for at least a month before it was butchered.

    Damn, two horses can skid out that much wood ? How did they get those trunks up so high ?

    http://www.peaveymfg.com/ & all this time I thought a peavey was s pole with a hook on the end to help move logs http://store.peaveymfg.com/assets/products/9307_131.jpg

      I believe that’s a pick pole with hook.
      Did you notice the difference between a cant hook and a peavey?
      This company’s tools are very reasonably priced.

      The way I always remembered a Peavey from a cant hook was P= pointed. Cant hooks are flat on the end.
      And then there’s also the pike poles for pushing logs in a river/pond. We used to have a 100 mile long river drive here, they floated hand cut railroad ties out of the mountains to the treatment plant and it took from 2-6 weeks to get that done, sometimes folks still find old hand forged pike tips on the ground.

    Did not get 2 feet before it plowed under…

    I use a pickeroon (from time to time) to save the back when stacking cordwood. This pick pole looks like it works well, too (although it might spank the elbow after awhile.) Hickory and ash can be a little hard to hook with a pickeroon, but cherry and oak load just fine.
