Plus Mel is real logger in his spare time. I like this guy, Arden is well mannered and good too, just not the same thing.

Hey, I'm related to Dave Geer. Up and out one of the branches. Just to make this clear, I don't have much woodsman capabilities, except tree ID of course.;)

arden cogar jr is best all around lumberjack in the usa
this is my 2cents arden cogar jr is good but just to let you know this year in webster he did win over all but to me it was rigged funny thing is he did not win nothing on sunday but still won over all also they only let two competitors out of the country to compete this year also if you want to beat the best u need to beat the best and if i was jamie i would have wanted the competition so if i won i would have known that i had beat the best in the world the wood on saturday was no were close in comparison also jamie is the home town kid that has never won so how conveniet that they change the rules this year and he wins the show over all this year i think it is a bunch of bull so if you want to consider that a true win for him go ahead and call him the best if you like by the way im sorry for anybody that i piss off but the truth is the truth also im not say that jamie is not good at what he does because he probly is ranked 15-18 of the best competitors in the world but not number one and not number one in the usa cause if so the show would not have been fixxed just my 2 cents SORRY FOR EVERYONE THAT I OFFENDED WHEN SAYING THIS :deadhorse:

You could be the only person on this board who really knows Arden Cogar Jr (Jamie). The Webster Show is a family run show and his mom is the one who chooses who can compete, which means international competitors (who can kick his butt easily) are not permitted to compete. I'm not saying Jamie's not good, but as far as being the best in the USA -- I don't know if I would immediately trust that claim.

Hahahahaha.
Why don't you put on a show? Then you wouldn't have to worry about it being rigged, and if he showed up you could kick his @ss in the underhand.

Of course if you do put on a show get ready, because no matter what you do someone is going to say it's rigged.:cheers:

I knew Arden Sr back in his prime,he was really good. I bought a competition (Australian axe) from him and he spent quit a bit of time helping me with it. I never came close to being as good as him,but he was willing to help me and that showed me he was a class act. I have talked to jr over at the chainsaw forum several times,but have never met him in person seems like a really nice guy. Its hard to say one guy is as good as the others. Its kind of like arguing which football team was the best over the past 50 years. Arden Sr may not be the best of all time to some,but to me he was very special,and was a great guy.
