A lone hunter heads into the Alaska wilderness for an epic six-week hunt for sheep, caribou and moose.
'I was stunned by the breath-taking scenery and his ethical stance on hunting. Buck's river adventure instilled a sense of thought, amazement, and pure delight that lasted three days.' --Larry Bartlett, Author of 'Caribou Hunting in Alaska' and 'Float Hunting Alaska'
'I thought the tape really captured some of the things that make Alaska unique, without sugar-coating the experience. You see the rain, hear the wind, feel the wet snow blowing against your cheek.' --Mike Strahan, author of 'Float Hunting Alaska's Wild Rivers'

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'm going to venture that many of us are cut from the same mold as Buck, and that--whether we realize it or not--in one incarnation or another we were hunters, that hunting is woven into the double-helix of our DNA and lives in the wild, primevil instinct deep in our hearts and in the core of our souls.
This is a terrfic video. I watched it every night for the first two weeks I owned it. And I recommend it to anybody who loves hunting, remote wilderness travel, isolated living or the outdoors.
It'll make you want to pack up, leave all your cares behind and head up to The Last Frontier. Ole Buck is the MAN.
