Armored farmer, didn't want to hi-jack the butcher shop thread.....tell me about/how you built your bridge? Does the water flow over it all year long? I have a river running thru my place that is a constant maintenance headache, currently using large rock and broken concrete to stem erosion. Most of the time we can get ATV's thru. A bit of a challenge during hunting season. When water levels are high we use a cable/chairlift system to get across.
