Saw it on the news. I guess even 3,000 year old trees die some time.

All is not lost. You can still pass through a giant tree trunk.

Pretty sad the tree fell. Even more sad that people ruin things like that just for the novelty purposes. They said the tree was pretty much dead already and had been for a long time because of how much they cut out of the trunk. I'm no treehugger or have any love for that group that hates offroaders, but I don't like it when folks are disrespectful to the surroundings and venture into closed off areas. Sorry, my for the day!!

Yeah, I agree with you. I don't think you will ever see any more trees treated that way. At least not in North America. The South American rainforest has very large trees too. I wonder if they do anything like that for tourism?


I vaguely remember my family driving through one of those trees. I was too young, and it has been too long, so I could not even guess which one it was. The experience probably lasted 8 seconds. Walking through at your leisure sounds more interesting.

Not sure that 3 1/2 yr old needed to die, but on the dark side, those genes are 'outta the pool'. No comment on the human.

I recon it coulda been the GMO Corn ...

Where I come from, we only count one antler, and no nubs iirc. Counting both is considered cheating!

Where you from, Charly?

Originally, I'm from upstate Minnesota. Cold country. However, I've been in the Valley since 1951.

That midwestern "ethic" is how I was raised, and is still what mostly guides me.

This is an old controversy amongst hunters. But mostly settled if you refer to record books. It is sometimes called western count, or eastern count, but it has more to do with species than locality. In WY for example, where both Mulies and Whitetail are found, the manner of counting is different. Of course, old habits die hard.


On Whitetail deer (that's what they have in TN), the total number of points will be counted.


On Mule deer, and Blacktail deer (which are a mule deer sub-species), points are counted per side. It is common to see a reference to a 4x4, or a 4 x 3.

Points should be 1" long or more to be counted.

I'm from a small town of ~100 in South Dakota, right in the middle of the best pheasant hunting. There were 26 students in my graduating class in '69.

Our street looks like a river right now. It is flowing out to about the centerline. I'm glad we live on the higher side.
