    Default Hunting the old fasioned way.....

    Lett'en em come to us, the smart way....... Sitting back, soaking in the last temps above freezing on a Riverside in the Arctic, hunting smart and makeing the best of the load carrying capacity of a boat before the water hardens. Kids had some great days with us, before school devours their days and we hunt without them along.

    And here's "Us" again, doing what we do best; Hunt Caribou.


    The ladys doing the hard work, drinking Apple Cider, eating berry's and fresh Italian style chewy Bread, chocolate and Caribou tongues on a stick....watching for Caribou Bulls that run out of the brush/willows they are passing through, straight into the river, with a crossing time in about a minute, willow lined shore to willow lined shore.


    Me at me easy work, gutting and parting out, breaking down the back legs to hang at home





    Us going home, meats made and a happy drive home.....me driving.

    Wow is right! That's a lot of caribou. So how long did it take you to harvest of all them? Was that a day trip or did you have to camp on the river for a couple of nights?

    Nope, no camera men, they were not along on this short hunt.....which is why I can post such

    Indeed,if I havent generated any hate over this all, I think the show comes off as it is, a couple camera guys and boatload of go pro's.Thats how its done, mostly.

    Besides, camera or not, its still just what we do.

    You guys wanna see some cool Spring Walrus and Seal hunting shots you would never see on Nat Geo, 'cause they werent there? Agnes and the girls came home with an adventure and a heavily loaded boat......maybe a seperate post... well see.

    That's been the worst part of you being on this show - not coming around here as often with your picture-heavy stories. We miss 'em, sir!

    Do we want to see cool walrus shots?!?! Heck ya we do!
    I think the show comes off good, they love the blood, some folks who just don't know or understand might not like it. But I don't like shows about a city...so guess we are even.

    Please don't tease...I'd love to see some cool Walrus and Seal hunts. Staying tuned for future posts. Your Caribou hunt was great! Thanks.

    Thanks for posting, considering the time you spend with a camera crew on your backside - appreciate hearing about the good life out there.
