The Timber Hitch is a useful knot especially when an object such as a log needs to be drug. For it to work properly, constant tension must be maintained. Slack and erratic pulling can loosen the knot. This knot can be a helpful way to pull or tow a wide variety of objects in the field.
HOW TO TIE:
1. Pass the end of the rope around the pole or log and then around the standing end.
2. Wrap the end around itself three times and tighten so that the three turns are gripped against the pole or log.
