The cooler temps have me in hoarding mode. I've had my eye on this one for a couple weeks. Hate to see it come down, but will enjoy the warmth. Decided to skid from the side, rather than straight up the hill by the butt. This let me get a bunch of the bigger branches before dealing with the logs. Now for the bigger ones, but first...let me just nip that limb off there... Whoops. This is why the top handle rides shotgun. Just had to let the slightest bit of pressure off. Now, back to the logs. My little path had been working out pretty good. This log came out without issue. Ever think you might have bit off more than your tractor can chew? After some finagling and some swearing and repositioning - success! I drug most all the wood to my nearby fallow food plot. Still some nice rounds in those tops, but I'll get those with the buggy later. Big log was pretty much limit for my little 30 horse. She has the guts, just not enough weight. Was having to brake steer a bit on the hill to the food plot. Measured just shy of 18'. 19" on big end tapering to about 15" on small end. Now it will sit there in a pile taunting me until I get a chance to process it.
