logging Companies

7 posts in this topic

This probably isn't the place but I'm not sure where else to look. I'm wondering who are some dependable logging contractors in the area. Looking for a company that cleans up after they are done logging. I have around 10 acres that looking to get logged. Thanks

I'd check with Two Inlets Mill and if they can't do it, they would point you in the right direction. There's another guy not very far west of Dorsett on 18 - I think it's across the road from Deer Lake.

schmoe, I will have to ask my uncle but we had some guys come log our property and they did a very good job cleaning up and piling the brush up where we wanted it. Where is your property at?

10 acres is a pretty small job for a logger to move equipment into. I'd be prepared for getting little to no money off the job unless it's high quality saw logs or has a decent amount of wood on it. If you want a clean site then don't use a logger that limbs in the woods. If they limb at the landing you will have a pile that they may chip or can be burned in the winter. Kimballs and Dick Walsh are the bigger operations but many smaller guys like Manners, Dukek, and many others I can't seem to remember. I can only vouch for Manners - they leave a clean site. I've done some firewood cleanup on county land with a county permit and was the company that did those sites was sloppy. I know who it was but won't bad mouth a business without knowing the circumstances. I got about 8 cords of wood from the skids laying on the ground that were never pulled to the landing!

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
