the logging season here goes all year except for in the spring when everything is realy realy wet and machinery cant operate in all locations there are more logging companys here in central and alot in northern minnesota are where the bulk of the work is as thats where there are the most state forests and private land with trees occupying the land. if looking for logging work look up by the duluth/walker and bemidji areas. hope this helps!
this is my last saw... no this ones my last saw... nope this is my last saw i promise... it never ends haha

Thanks for the replies,the long hours don't bother me too much.I get 70+ he's a week now.we drive an hour to the woods then work 12 hours.usually 6 days a week in the summer.
  What's the pay like,for say an experienced stroker operator?
