    Swamp Loggers Show

    I enjoy my job so much. I really appreciate all the fans and comments. I never thought I'd have Fans. I'm so flattered and it just don't seem real. If anyone would like to post on the fan page. Facebook has one for the show, you can comment to anyone. It's almost certain you will get a reply. Just look for groups and Swamp Loggers (The Show). They also have allot of photos and there are a few of my Blue Kenworth. I will ask Bobby to come and post! Thanks again and keep on watching. We love the support you've given.

    Hey, HotRodNC. We thank you for a show that we can tell is "real" not like some of the other logging show on TV now-a-days. U can tell that u guys are not "acting" for the camera and just doing your jobs, and it would be great to get Boddy to be a member of HEF and thanks for the posts.

    Answer

    I believe there will be 5 episodes and I think there is 5 Fridays. Should be on Friday nights again at 10pm.. will post for sure dates when I get them. Have you guys been on the facebook fan page? You should check it out if not. It has allot of photos of the whole crew and you can post comments and ask anyone questions. Just search for Swamp Loggers (The Show) Fan Page

    :usa :notworthy Thanks to all our fans!

    Don't do facebook or tweet or any of those things. Enough of my computer time is wasted in places like this:bash

    I searched for the group on facebook and noticed the boycott Swamp Loggers group. it's a private group, guess they don't want a dialog on the subject. :lmao Some people can't grasp that without reforestation, loggers would have been out of the job a long time ago.:pointhead

    Anyway i love the show, the producers did a good job of presenting the operation without all the misleading editing and animations of stick figures dieing.

    Swamp loggers is the best show of the bunch.
    Then i go axemen cause it's west coast and yarding, etc.
    then american logger last, what a sleeper.

    I dont get axemen in canada anymore, maybe this is why, running a power saw all day with no eye protection? Running around in the F&B setting chokers on a wet foggy day wearing camoflauge rain gear? Throwing tongs into the slash while there are guys standing where you are aiming? These guys would get shut down here in about 1 minute until they got up to speed.

    New Episodes Start April 30th... Keep watching and thanks so much. By the way, were trying to rev up support for the filming company. Without them we would not film. Google.. Pilgrim Films and Television! Let'em know how much you appreciate them.

    It was kind of funny last week, I was breaking in a new driver and as we were going down 6 miles of wet clay road he said "Wow, this is almost like on 'Swamp Loggers' " I said "well, we are going into the Pee Dee river swamp and you are probably going to haul pulpwood to IP Riegelwood which is the papermill they go to a lot." He finished the day and did good but he quit the next morning cause he said he didn't think he could take the swamps.
