Very nicely put together video. In our world today of big corporate studios making todays hunting videos, this video shows that you can just document the beauty of the landscape without having to show huge racked animals being harvested in order to get the results of a great hunting video. My grandfather always told me that 90% of hunting was enjoying and respecting the beauty of the landscape. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Great video and a very respectable man that sends it.

I live in Alaska and I would like to say that this video is a great documentary of Alaska's remote wilderness. It shows all kinds of wildlife and fish from grizzlies to wolves. I new this was an adventure film, but i also thought i was buying a hunting video too... Before you read the next part I want you to know that I am a very ethical and responsible hunter, I only hunt to fill the freezer so my family can survive. I watch hunting videos so that i can become a more efficient and humane hunter, so please dont take offense to fact that i didnt like this film because it didnt show the guy making any kills... The adventure was good despite the fact that the guy was a little boring, but when it came to hunting there was very little footage. It didnt show hardly any stalks and it didnt show him take down any animals. Plus all he shot was caribou, when i made the purchase I was under the impression that he also bagged Dall sheep and moose. If I wanted a film that was just observing wild animals I would have saved my 20 bucks and just watched the Discovery Channel.

This video captures the hunt, and almost everything that goes with it, directly from the hunter's eye. There is no hype, political or environmental propaganda, no "Hollywood" narration, no "spin" of any kind and no ulterior motives.

The videographer travels hundreds of miles by foot and raft in remote North Eastern Alaska, a wild, isolated, game-rich area held in deep reverence by experienced bush residents, hunters, trappers and dreamers.

Views of of wolves, wolverines, grizzlies, sheep, moose and caribou are personal, if not always "up close."

Indeed, the best part of this video is that you see things the way you would if you were an isolated, solitary hunter in the area today, or thousands of years ago.

It's also enough to make you think that you could put together a trip like this yourself; that if you were in good physical condition, could exercise common sense (essential for solitary wilderness travel!), and if you had sufficient experience and equipment that you could hunt this country in this way.

The single complaint I have about this video is that you never see "the moment of truth." Not once do you hear the crack of Buck's hunting rifle, which looks like the venerable "get-it-done" .30-06.

I'd also have liked more shots of camp. I've spent lots of time in the outdoors and one of the best parts is setting up camp, relaxing around a camp fire and then crawling into a warm sleeping bag and falling asleep to the sound running water, wind and wild animals. There are a few shots of camp, the campfire and the tent but not many. Of course, that sort of thing can be boring to some people.

I have lived in Alaska several years and I can say with out a doubt, this video captures Alaska's beauty from start to finish. It takes a look at the remoteness Alaska has to offer; from contract bush plane operations, very very remote Dall Sheep adventures, moose and caribou trekking, the rigors and triumphs of remote river rafting to the ultimate harvesting of big game animals, this video has it all.
I rate this video an easy 5 star rating. Scotty.

Incredible! I envy Buck so much! Living near Fairbanks his backyard is ANWR and the Brooks Range.
His only problem will be that Obama will very likely use the Antiquities Act to morph ANWR into a Natl. Monument right before he leaves office as part of his "scorched-earth" transformation of America......
For those of you who may not think that's a big deal, well, IT IS! You see ANWR is already plenty protected by federal law (which I don't really have too much of a problem with). However too much of the Brooks Range is already closed to all hunting and trapping as those huge pieces of land have already been SEIZES by the Feds under the "Noatak Natl. Preserve" and "Gates of the Artic Natl. Park." Once Obama SEIZES ANWR (a MASSIVE piece of pristine land in far northeast AK), that too will be completely closed to outsiders coming in to legally hunt and trap. I could be wrong, but if you really know what Obama is truly all about, it only makes sense that even more federal control of places like ANWR are a top priority...... Thank the "R-Party" for being the gutless linguini-spines that they are..... Screaming about how Obama can't do this and shouldn't do that, and then turning around and giving him everything he wants at the expense their own constituents! All the while racking up another $10 trillion in debt in only 8 years!
