There's a current thread about how to take really big rounds and reduce them in size so they're easier to move. Much talk about noodling methods and such. Dennis mentioned using a 2x10 ramp and his cant hook to get big rounds up into his truck. As a relative newcomer to wood processing, I've wanted to learn more about those tools that are used to roll logs over while cutting or to elevate logs up off the ground for cutting through, or just for moving logs and rounds, like the cant hook. Several times, while cutting deadwood trunks on the ground, I have kicked myself for not having brought along my digging bar to use as a heavy pry bar. (Yes, I know that's the wrong tool) I've read through several threads here that cover this. Some of the stuff recommended was a little expensive, like a really good splitting axe is. What I'm wondering is, what would you guys recommend so far as basic wood moving tools for someone starting out. I suppose some discussion of winching and otherwise dragging logs fits here, and I'd certainly find that interesting, but my main interest right now is to try to decide what simple hand tools such as a cant hook to get hold of first. BTW I'd like to focus on just this one subject, because I think I have already seen plenty of good advice about saws, splitters, trucks, mauls, wedges, axes, etc.
