BTB 47: MONTANA LOGGER OF THE YEAR
Published on: Monday 4th December 2017
The FRA’s 2017 Regional Outstanding Logger, Bull Creek Forestry is a family owned business based out of Seeley Lake, Montana. Leelyn Cahoon and wife, Teresa are native to the area. The whole family is involved in the day-to-day operations. Joel operates the Tigercat 1075C forwarder and Levi runs the Tigercat LH822C harvester. Both machines were purchased from Titan Machinery in Missoula, Montana. 24-year-old Tylor drives a log truck, while Teresa keeps the books and handles logistics.
Leelyn’s success is due not only to hard work but also because he is always learning how to be efﬁcient in every aspect of the business. He buys his own timber and contracts with the state of Montana as well as mills throughout the state to deliver raw logs to the mills.
