**On the Nail **
In August's Woods Wise, I was glad to see Tom Fegely mention the problems caused by leaving nails and spikes in trees, and as a former sawmill operator, I'd like to add my two cents. Damage to sawmill equipment is not the only thing that happens when saw blades strike metal in logs. Over the years, sawmill workers have been killed from the shrapnel that results. I would hate to be responsible for someone's death by simply being too lazy to completely dismantle my tree stand when it's no longer usable.
