This video shows the cutting of over 100 trees by one man in 2 hours on a south facing hillside. This area is currently used for deer bedding, including doe beds and buck beds, but so is the other side of the hill. I want to discourage bedding on the other side because deer can observe my approach to my deer stand from there. To do so, I optimize bedding on the south side of the hill, and destroy bedding on the north side (see earlier blog post “I destroy a buck bed!”). I used a habitat hook that could be extended to 16 feet. Without it, I would not have been able to do so much habitat work or keep so many hinge cut trees from breaking. With the leverage from the habitat hook I was able to stop cutting sooner, so the tree would not lean back to pinch my saw or fall forward on its own with the possibility of breaking off, and push or pull trees down gently. Extendable habitat Hooks are available from www.nationscreations.net I receive no compensation for any product I recommend, but do the recommendations only because I want to get the best tools in people’s hands.
