The Whack Job badges require you to cut down dead trees.
Which suits me just fine but for one thing: dead trees are rarer than... a rare thing.
Some thread suggested to use Tree Poison to just kill them, and this works wonders... yet you are supposed to cut down up to 1009 trees! Taking into account the poisoning time and the "guilt phase" that prevents you to use another potion for a while, this amounts to a disproportionate time needed to get these badges when compared to 99.9% of the other badges.
It just doesn't sound right to me... Am I missing something?
