In my past life I was an unruly student at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. It was there where I began forging my future as a wordsmith. Beyond the tens of thousands of dollars paid to fund Starbucks-addicted, liberal journalism professors, I also spent a big chunk of change learning from conservative educators about natural resources.
I once even learned how to safely fell a tree with a chainsaw; now's your chance.
In the February/March 2013 issue of North American Hunter, you'll read a great piece about managing timber for whitetails from the one-and-only Scott Bestul. With that, Scott was kind enough to spend some time with a professional logger and shoot this short instructional video to share with NAHC members.

There's also a timber-cutting method known as "hinge cutting." If you insist on employing this dangerous technique (emphasis on "dangerous"), click here to watch a video and learn the safest way to do it.
