Oak sticks that are harvested a year in advance often have extensive worm working by the time the stick has dried enough to create a walking stick, however using a pressure washer to remove the bark will leave a very nice worm worked walking stick.

I am expecting delivery of a new tool for stick hunting today. I purchased quad copter (DJI Phantom 2) from China. The quad (drone) comes equipped with video camera that transmits video to my smart phone. I am hoping to be able to look for sticks growing in difficult places to access, without first climbing the hill side to look.
It's really disheartening to climb the side of a huge steep hill and no sticks.
What are your thoughts?

Just watched a show on National Geographic where a man trained his dog to find moose antlers. Well, take a look at Trip the stick hunting dog. People ask, "Randy, how do you find all those curled sticks?" Now you know my secret!
