A herd? How many were there? Are they dangerous? But heck, you're a gun
nut aren't you? (just joking, just joking). And what about snakes? I
heard that large poisonous snakes love to hide near the palmettos
waiting for foresters to come along. <G> Oh, also, glad I remember this
one- what about those "killer bees", are they a problem? Or do they help
drive the wimpy foresters into office jobs and leave the woods for you
real John Wayne types?

How many helpers did you have to mark that 150 mbf? What sort of marking
tool do you use. (a conversation only fully appreciated by "mud"
foresters- all PHD's can skip this paragraph)
