Hi folks, some of you may know me and my videos from the pristine ventures web site.....
I have an idea for a new "how to" video, but I wanted to bounce the idea off of all of you before I get the ball rolling.
I would like to produce a series of segments (and ultimately a DVD) on how to hunt Caribou hunt the Dalton Highway. I have hunted it numerous times, and I feel it's a great rescource, and a wonderful experience--but it could have been better if more of us are on the same page.
I have hours of my own video, but I am considering asking other viewers (fellow hunters) for their videos as well. I would complie all the video into something that would be useful to all of us. This isn't meant to be a video of people shooting lots and lots of animals, but some of that kind of footage will be in there. It would be specifically directed at these items:
A.Planning and Preperation
1. for your vehicle
2. for your hunt
C. Rules and Regulations (the laws)
D. Haul Road Courtesies
1. Truckers and driving the road
2. Other Hunters
E. Road hunting ethics
1. Avoiding other hunters and stalks in progress
2. When to shoot and when not to shoot
F. Field Care of animals and transport
G. "Tour" of the road and various locations along the way.
H. Parking and Camping locations (where to, and how to)
I. Other ideas to use the road as access for more remote hunts
1. Fly in
2. 5 mile hike
J. Information sources.....(internet, game and fish, etc, etc)
The list goes on and on and on....there are many more things I could go over, and I would be open for suggestions from viewers. I would also need video from viewers- not just of killing things, but of places along the way, interesting events, examples of road conditions, trucks...etc, etc....
What I DON'T want to get into is:
A. Specific places to go kill your Bou (it wouldn't matter too much anyway due to them being wandering nomads)
B. The dreaded truck incident
My question is this: Do you feel it would attract more attention to an already stressed rescource, or would it alleviate stress on this rescource by instructing sportsmen on the do's and dont's of hunting it?
So, fire away,--- what are your thoughts?
