Hello, I am in the city with trees, trees everywhere and not a fork to harvest without fines etc and I am new to board cuts as well. I would like to ask for the board cut at the very bottom of the picture and the natural fork on the left second natural fork from the bottom. If this is asking too much I understand say so and I will pick only one if that is more fair.  Let me know the shipping cost before you ship and I will happily reimburse you however you would like the money.  
 
Also I make crafts from paracord that I would like to send your way, do you like lanyards (for sling shots or knives), bracelets (different styles) or fobs (like key fobs or knife fobs) also I make a paracord slingshot, you shoot it like a stick shot. (I regularly trade these items as well)
Thank you for taking time to read this, Robert.

2 blocks???? That's super close man! I bet there are coyotes lurkin there.....

Nah, I live in Sweden :) What I've seen so far is hares, squirrels, deer, wood pecker, owl and eagle (not 100% sure about the last two though). I haven't seen any beavers yet but I harvest forks from the trees they cut down. Gotta love 'em! :)
I hear Sweden has some nice beaver .
I'm surprised you have not seen any 😁
I've heard the legend but I have no time to explore the truth in this matter as slingshot building and shooting is very time consuming...

I just came home from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science where they have a featured exhibition on Vikings.  They had a lot of swords and axes but I didn't see one slingshot!

Hi, my friend:

The "Ranger" cut out has been spoken for but I would be happy to send you the other cut out and also that big  natural fork. Send me your snail mail address via a PM and I will send them off in a flat rate USPS box.  When you get it you can send me a check for the postage.

The homeowners association frowns upon cutting "forks" from the neighborhood trees.

 

I'll gladly pay postage for one of the mesquite forks seeing that it doesn't grow here in my area.

 

If available, I'd like the short one in the back.

Howdy Melt down....

 

I'd be happy to send you one or two of the natural forks if you'll PM me your mailing address.  I am not sure which fork you were referring to but there are some good ones left.  I just mailed off the two board cut forks using a USPS small flat rate box. The postage was $7.15.  If you want the fork(s) you can send me the postage after you get the package.  I have never been stiffed by a SS Forum member.  

 

Where in the country do you live?

GP, I sent you a PM.

 

If still available, I'm picking one of the highlighted forks.

Such a generous offer, I hope to find a way to give back to this community.

 

At the least, I'll post up some build pictures.

 

Thanks!

Thanks again GP.

 

P.S. - postage reimbursement headed your way.
