Different woods

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Our hunting camp is surrounded by a few hundred acres of hardwoods , we are not allowed to cut healthy trees but may harvest " blowdowns "
We get cords of red & white oak , can get as much hickory, wild pecan as needed.
Other woods I've not used but can get
1) ironwood (American horn beam)
2) persimmon
3) black locust
4) magnolia
5) dogwood
Has anyone used the last five?

Ironwood--------no idea

Persimmon---- I've heard that it has been used, but no personal experience

Black Locust- Heard that it can be bitter, but no personal experience. Have some drying to try this summer.

Magnolia--------no idea

Dogwood--------no idea
