My guess is that someone boo-booed taking/posting pictures..Notice the small pile of upper branches next to the "posts" stuck in the ground and no sledge hammer marks on the fresh cuts...Oh well... :roll: ..In "96,000 acres",what's a few small trees...JMG... :oops:

My first impression was they were live trees cut off so the attendees could see the demo of the thermal heated hammock covering in the background. It's highly unlikely that someone would cut blowdown wood to the exact same length and stick them into a snow drift at the same depth. I think those two guys thought I was born last month :lol: The video up there shows the three stumps at around the 6:25 mark. They are still standing there doing nothing. ;) I asked them what snow stakes are and got no reply. Only what you see in the quote I posted above.
