XPost form TGR and teletalk. Long story short. A couple of guys in VT got arrested for carving a 60' 3/4 mile long swath down the front of Big Jay. Here is some juicy discussion for the summer reading months.

Moral of the story: when you are out cleaning out the woods at your favorite little stache, be very discrete.

Andy, here is your solution for MPC. BTW- try to use hacksaws, they make less noise. Someone might notice a 60 foot wide swath of clear-cut coming down the side of MPC (though telling the USFS that "it's just another gas pipeline" might actually work out there)... \:\)

yeah get on it andy!

I scouted a real nice looking run that you can see from the intersection of laneville and bonner mt roads tho. north facing and already has a clearing/trail cut that even looks like a ski trail. have no idea if its usfs land or not tho, have to ask someone more familiar with the area \:\)

Thanks for the reference. I can not imagine the effort required to put a 60 foot wide X 1/4 mile long clear cut slope into a previously wooded area.
The first reference you give is great reading. The second a bunch of folks suffering from vocabulary shortfall.
Interesting situation, and pathetic.

Here are some pics and a short video on this. For a pair of meatheads, they were pretty ambitious.

Whoa! that is some serious stuff. I can't imagine someone doing that and not expecting to get caught. I wonder if the folks at timberline will hear out lopers and hacksaws

How on earth did they get away with as much as they did??? That's a pretty big job there.

Yes, it is a big job, I am wondering how on earth they moved the trees from the trails after they cut them. I mean, I am sure that a few didn't fall they way they wanted
