Looking for some help on sealing windows on log home

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction onWhat I could use to fill the gaps between my logs and the window frame. I am trying to use something that wouldn't trap any moisture and then place chinking/caulk over the material to seal it. I attached some pictures. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.See More
