Idiom:”By hook or crook” – By any means possible, in one way or another. This term has a disputed origin. a widely held theory is that it comes from the custom of allowing commoners to take as much wood from royal forests as they cold reach with a shepherd’s crook and cut down with a billhook (1300’s).
–From The American Heritage Dictionary of Idioms by Christine Ammer.
