    I remember salvaging some firewood off the beach once. Seems like burning salt water soaked wood in a metal stove with metal stove pipe is not the best thing from a longevity standpoint. But you gotta find wood somewhere I suppose.

    Drying out the wood for a year works great! while out and about if you see wood grab it, if you see deer take em, etc..

    Looks like a good time....nice buck!

    I agree on salt burning in a steel stove...many manufactures void the warranty if done.

    A little poke to safety....if you must point the muzzle in an unsafe direction, leave the bolt open......
