Bosworth inducted into Timbersports Hall of Fame
February 14, 2017
Bonners Ferry native Carson Bosworth is one of three timber sports athletes to be inducted into the Stihl Timbersports Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

Carson represented Team USA at the 2008 Stihl Timbersports World Championship in Kilkenny, Ireland, where he finished third overall.

He still holds the national record at the World Championship in both the springboard chop and standing block chop events. Carson is known for being one of the most consistent athletes in the sport for nearly two decades.

As a competitor, he performed well in every discipline, and rarely placed out of the top five in any single event. He is a second-generation lumberjack athlete, following in his late father’s footsteps.

Carson attended the University of Idaho, where he was actively involved in the forestry club, and went on to compete in the Stihl Timbersports Professional Series for about 12 years.

He retired from the Series in 2013, following the U.S. Championship event where he placed fifth; that event was held at the Great Smoky Mountain Lumberjack Feud in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

He, alongside his father, Bob, helped to organize several lumberjack events in Bonners Ferry and around the state over the years.
