    One of the most informative films I’ve ever watched.

    Regardless of the efficiency (or otherwise) I found this to be most
    interesting. A well crafted documentary. The featured experts were
    attractive personalities, especially Dolly (can I say that these days?). 

  3. Robert Watson says:

    They don’t use power tools because of the stupid laws about “wilderness
    areas” which forbid ANY power tools for ANY reason. In Wyoming a Boy Scout
    injured in the Cloud Peak Wilderness needed medical evacuation promptly. A
    helicopter was available but the authorities forbid its use into the
    wilderness. The chopper went anyway and took the young man to a hospital.
    These laws are insanity at its best. Blowdowns from storms blocked the
    trails for over a year because of the difficulty in finding men interested
    in doing this type of work with primitive tools when chain saws would do
    many times as much work in a given time.

    the ax profile info at 46:00 is totally wrong. the bits are rounded for a
    very specific purpose, so that the energy is not spread over the whole
    blade. its very similar to how they explain using a draw knife at an angle,
    or the pulaski, you want it to “cut” or “slice” while it chops. the only
    way to accomplish this with a ax is to put a slight curve in the bit. the
    double bit he is using as an example is terribly flat, and very
    inefficient. he needs a lesson from the white haird guy with the suspenders
    and hat. he knows his shlitz

    I have to say I learn a lot thanks for sharing

  8. Watch Ryder says:

    4:06 I use this type for work on my land, it’s pretty decent but barely
    capable for thick logs

  9. discorperted says:

    While interesting, this is a massive waste of resources. A 2-3 person team
    of good sawyers/packers with chainsaws can do in two weeks what these crews
    do in a full year.

    Very good stuff here!

    @baronmaul Single-bits are sometimes called poll-axes, but I think that’s a
    general term rather than referring specifically to large ones.

  20. Houba Hop says:

    Gorgeous Documentary thanks a lot!

  21. meatloafzombie says:

    Filmed in western Montana. Damn though Skogkniv, I somehow got drawn into 3
    hours of skills filmed in my back yard. Thank You.

  22. Adventure Sworn says:

    @SkogKniv Same thing I was thinking. He did mention something about
    Ponderosa pines and those do grow out there.

    where can I find this video?

  25. Jim Southern says:

    That brought back a bunch of memories. Great post.

  26. I got this website from my friend who told me on the topic
    of this web page and now this time I am visiting this
    website and reading very informative posts here.

  27. The 50 %-Daly life motor was house to a seres of custom-made solitary- and multiplayer modifications (or mods”) that completely changed
    the glance, design and style, and gameplay, normally creating entirely different
    online games thzt shared only the underlying motor and
    FPS ethos.

  28. Wow, that’s what I was looking for, what a data!

    present here at this web site, thanks admin of this site.

  29. I guess this is really an Auditory Processing task- remembering a series of notes.

  30. That is a really good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very accurate info… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  31. I needed to send you this very little observation so as
    to say thanks a lot again for these striking concepts you have contributed at
    this time. It’s simply strangely open-handed of people like you to
    give freely what exactly most people would’ve distributed as an ebook to help make some dough on their
    own, primarily now that you could possibly have tried it if you wanted.
    The guidelines in addition served like the great way
    to be aware that most people have a similar dreams
    the same as mine to realize somewhat more in respect of this condition. Certainly
    there are numerous more pleasurable periods up front for those who find
    out your website.

  32. Great website you have here but I was wondering if
    you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

  33. Fastidious replies in return of this matter with genuine arguments
    and describing the whole thing regarding that.

  34. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against
    content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
