Great video and a very respectable man that sends it.
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.Read more ›
I rate this video an easy 5 star rating. Scotty.
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!

Videography left a little to be desired but this was a great movie. Buck Nelson made you feel like you were right beside him in the wilds of Alaska.Published 27 days ago by Realwarrior
Fascinating and inspiring video. Unlike any other... Highly recommend it.Published 3 months ago by billy molls
You get the real deal with movies that Buck makes. He's a one man operation and goes to a lot of effort to bring the wilderness experience to his viewers (no Hollywood glitz here). Read morePublished 5 months ago by Eastern Shore Vic
For me, somewhat interesting for home video footage. Great trip. Price is far too high in my opinion, I wouldn't pay over $10. Not too excited to watch it twice or share.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
