I kinda liked the 3rd cousin that was helping him a few shows ago. I'm dearly afraid that this cousin may have ate that one.

Shelby said he had to watch out for her big Guerrilla hands, they were scary. Throw this gal a little hay and a hand full of oats once in awhile she'd be good to go.

Shelby found the "BOGALUSA RAFT".  Are those logs worth what they say?  Millions?  ???

I'd like to see that Cuban Mahogany opened up. What could that have been doing in the big Lake in South LA? It didn't grow here did it?

Did not see the show containing the "Cuban Mahogany",,,, no telling what it is if Shelby is one naming the species ;D.  As far as a raft of lost cypress, not too likely. Hundreds of cypress log rafts of different sizes were floating throughout the local river systems out across Lake Maurepas thru Lake Pontchartrain. The rafts with logs Floating, had no reason to sink as a group. Many times interior logs would sink out of the raft, but it would not be logical for a raft or a group of logs to sink in one loation while being rafted. There are many tales of 'Rafts'. I have found two logs dog chained together before, and a few logs with dogs in the ends. That tells me that the exterior connected logs beagn to sink and they were disconnected from the raft and left. Sometimes a big sap heavy log would start to drop out and it would take several other down with it.

All those shows are staged with lots of drama induced to keep the public tuned into the series. All are scripted by producers who think they know what will draw the most viewing time, seems like one way or the other, those guys are getting thier job done, or we'd not be tallking about them, ;)

It was Shelby's log buyer that identified the log and the subsequent value.  Shelby had no idea of it's value, other than it was a very large log. 

I enjoyed watching Shelby and the Oxen teams in New Hampshire this year.

Gotcha Roxie..thanks.

Shelby is a hoot, he's exactly like in real life as reflected on the show. Wide Open !  Good guy that would give you the last 10 cents in his pocket. It bothers me the ratty rigging and pratices that he uses tho.

i dont watch often, but i seen the morons that get logs in florida, father and son "team" i believe. plus the guys in washington state that are related too. they never seem to get along, absolutely no respect.

i told my dad after 10 minutes of that show yesterday," im not sure which person i would beat down first"

ive worked alot of places and in the real world people do not talk that way to employers or employees.


also fun is fun but who would have been liable if one of those greenhorns racing down that hill and back up would have suffered some head injury or neck trauma.?  probably the show would be of limited interest if they lost all the BS drama.

When it first came on years ago I enjoyed watching how the other guy logged but any more I don't care to watch. There setting a poor example for the logging industry as fas as Iam concerened.

I just can't watch Axmen.
Swamp loggers was the most realistic logging show. Just not enough drama, I figure that's why they got canceled.
