Fatdawg, As a CR instructor we stay to our teaching manual. But we do have a little time to show some personal setting techniques & tips. I show that method (cutting brush & replanting) to our classes. I also recommend to prepare set locations on trails before the season. That work will be done and you will be in & out on setting day.What got my interest was that he cuts off the saplings and brush ground level and then plants them back in to keep the area looking natural and eliminating entanglement.
