    Some was good and some had good weight but looks like crap. Not a ant in any of it, the closer I got to the trunk the worst the wood was. Still have some good wood from it. Next is hauling it down from up top.

    Zap, your photos rock. Every one of your posts make me wish I was working in the woods instead of scrounging in the city.

    Zap, no matter what the wood looks like, it is great firewood.

    Hey, if you heard a shot yesterday, that might have been me. I filled my last tag so now when the meat is taken care of I'll be ready to start cutting wood.

    Congrads on filling your tag, in 2 weeks I can get back to cutting in an area that will be safer (rifle season over with) and get some more Cherry,Beech and some shoulder season wood for next year (Basswood and Popple).

    Hey Zap, right after rifle season here the archery season kicks in again. Also there is muzzleloader season in December. But by then almost everyone does their hunting only early morning or late evening. I've never had a problem cutting then.

    Just keep on cutting Zap, you are doing fine.
