If you can only imagine. The corn feeder did not move an inch and is still working like new. Had lots of timber damage. Looks like it went through the middle of our land. Think I am gonna timber off what is down and get what money it's worth. Anyone ever heard of a buck bed? Suppose to be where a tree is cut or snapped-over naturally. Have read on QDMA that bucks love these spots. Anyway, should have plenty of them.

I think where the tornado took the trees down it will be some good hunting in the next few seasons.

Sorry for your neighbors loss.

I haven't ever heard'em called "buck beds" but I've seen many a deer get up out of brush piles made by timber companys and such. So my opinion would be yes the like using these for cover.

Looks like you need to go into the firewood biddness to me.....cut them all off at the stump and crown, leavibg the limby tops for cover, stack the wood up at the camp and you'll be getting all kinds of pats on the back, come the seasons!:thumb:

Anyone had any timber cut lately? Whats a decent size oak worth? I have no idea but have lots of say telephone pole size and bigger down. Just curious if theres a general rule of thumb on value.

Haven't heard any prices lately, but timber prices have been low for a while due to the building slowdown, also the price paid for storm damaged trees is quite a bit lower than standing timber because of all the extra labor in geting it harvested and the twisted and splintered ones will be of no value, except for fire wood. Lots of timber down all along the whole storm path. Good luck !

i believe hardwood pulpwood was going for $4 to $5 a ton at the stump for north Arkansas. can't swear by that. probably do better selling a lot of firewood
