History of Bow Saws,
Coll pics, and a great frind. John parmeter. Yhe one of him in the tall skinny pine, he drove an hour, and ten minutes. Climbed a tree for me in the pouring rain. All for a 372 for me a very best friend.
We also trade tree work for hunting rights on a few ranches.
Finsihed my last 80 acre tract of farm land clearing today. Funny thing was the leasing guy that farms the ground came out as I wanted hiim to make sure he was happy with everything I did and he was.
He spent more time contemplating taking down four large cottonwoods that were right on the field line that a combine would clearly hit as we had looked everyhitng over and I told him I would be half way down with them already in the time we sat waiting for him to make a choice. Dropped right in the drainge ditch so minimal clean up.
On this job I for the first time used wedge method on few trees. Worked like a charm everytime. The one issue I had though is mine are actaull spliting wedges (steel) Will order plastic ones soon. Not much room for error with the chainsaw blade with those.
Sorry no pictures. I was plain to tired to take any. The MS660 is just such a kick to run though them cottonwoods

Neil, the country and Boars we have, are unique. Definately not like on tv with one great dane, and flat fields LOL! We usually run 4, and if more of the gang comes we run more. All I can say its all mountain country, and steep, and rugged. Thes big boars are hard to shut down. LIke a hybrid still have alot of euro blood. Most of us run two catch dogs now. The pic with the redwood, and river doesn't do it justice we have lost the same Boar down there about 3-4 times. Always runs straight to the river steep! And about 2-3 miles deep in that canyon probably more. The one with the waterfall is about 40ft to the bottom, and that angel is the average terrain. My battle proven friends dont get excited about going there. Even a goat would have trouble.
Hunting is hard work most times, except our western boys just lay their guns across bonnets and play long distance.
Main thing is its fun for the ones who choose to do it.
tried sending you a little rep but admin said to spread it around, maybe next time.

LOL! And I have always had the utmost respect for mu aussie brothers. A rugged breed, country, pigs and dogs. Some of the mountain country I have seen in pics there, man oh man. LIke here not like on tv. LOL! This one was from this morning a real battle, and entangled in blackberry's. Im on the far left.
Cool stuff Norm, I don't hunt but wish I did. Just wouldn't have the time for it these days. I remember going out with my dad when I was real young.
Thanks Will, my two biggesst hobby's. My dog's and hunting, and my saw's and cutting My saw's have gained me friends like this site, money when times were tough. Hunting ranches. It is like I used to tell Jeanie when I needed a bull rope, or a saw its not just a hobby, but they really earn there keep. They constantly pay for themselves. Hell my dogs too, they put alot of real meat on the table for everyone.
Just curious Norm, do you use rifles, pistols or both, and what calibers. Pig hunting looks like a blast. Did a little coon hunting with dogs MANY years ago.

All three Joe, mainly we prefer 44-357 and a good old marlin 30-30. But mostly a good blade. My remington pump 30-06 has proven to be a great all around gun.
I've already posted a couple of these in F&L. Used my ported 390XP for it and if you want a laugh I put a vid of it up on youtube, TreeworkDK, it had a bad lean into another Beech so had to push the hinge to the last and pay attention ! We got some good milling timber out of it and a good load of fire wood out of this one and did another in the afternoon.
