I live and madison county. WE don't really have hills. Hancock county is even flatter.
I did watch the loggers show on history channel and they basically used a winch so I think you are on the right track, but yes if on a hill i just get sone young help and make the trips.
I try to get most of mine out of the flat fields where they have fallen into the crops since the farmers will give it to you if you get it out of the way so they can plant/harvest.
