Extension chain saw recommendations
« on: July 19, 2018, 10:23:20 pm »

Looking to buy a extension pole chain saw for my deer stand/hunting lanes. Any suggestions appreciated, they can be battery or electric.  Have a small generator I could if have to take in woods when clearing out. Thanks for any help.

I just bought the stihl.  Kind of expensive but it cranks every time I go to use it.  I have had it probably 4 or 5 years and and use it a couple times a year and never had any issues with it.

You're gonna cut too much and not see deer.

The only negative with the Stihl is it doesn't come with someone to pick up the limbs. What you cut in 30 minutes takes 4 hours to pick up.

I have a friend who let's me borrow one of his hired hands.  $100 and he will run that saw all day long.  I just follow on the wheeler and point and drink beer.  Then I just bushhog all the limbs.  If they are too big I shove them into the woods with my tractor.

Nice buck, and love seeing the kid with it, but next time drag it out of the corn pile before you take a picture with it. Make it look like you were really hunting.  ;)

We had been REALLY hunting all season long.  That was December the 9th.  Running out of time.  I corned up my own stand and let him sit in my lap.  We watched that deer a couple days earlier for a solid hour down at the end of the lane.  Few days later he walked out about 9AM.  He was a happy camper.  Best buck he has killed.  And it didn't drop.  He had to go find the deer in a thicket.  Found it himself and it wasn't bleeding.  I knew he had hit it cuz it donkey kicked when he shot it.  I have a couple pics in the woods where he found it.  I just wanted to get one of him in the lane with him.

Sorry, just ribbin a little, that's an awesome day for a boy his age, good that you let him go find it too. I always want kids to track to the deer even if they see it go down, find every spec of blood just like you would if you didn't know where it went.

Oh I knew you were teasing.  That was a good hunt though really.  He got all nervous.  He wanted me to look and see if it was big enough.  I finally was able to peak around him through the scope and just said "shoot that deer".  I drawed down and shook and huffed and puffed.  Finally laid the gun down.  Said "daddy, I'm too nervous.  Gotta calm down".  Then he drawed down again and took a deep breath and squeezed the trigger. He saw him kick and said " I got HIM".  But there was NO blood.  none.  I was crawling on hands and knees and looked up and my boy is stomping off down a deer trail through the thicket.  I finally saw a speck and hollared for him to come look and looked up and all I saw was orange going through the thicket.  Next thing I heard was " here he is".  Really great day.
