  • Best Alaskan Show - feedback from the pros

    Out of all the Alaskan shows on TV which is your favorite and why? Focusing mainly on survival and hunting/fishing/trapping, the stuff we like as hunters. I have to vote for Life Below Zero. I like how it jumps around to various rural locations and shows the lifestyle there. Also is shows failures just as much as successes for the activities. Hunting is always a main theme for the show. Haven't seen the Kodiak show yet but have watched many others - Yukon men, etc.

      Alaska Outdoors TV. It's the only one that deserves the title of "reality show".

              Alaska Outdoors Television is really the only "Alaska" show I watch any more. Every once in a while I catch life below zero because of the Hailstones though.

                That's a cryptic post. Can you clarify? We don't do TV around here, is Project Alaska a reality show? Also what do you mean by "one month float hunting Alaska's wild rivers"?

                  Rusted Rooster Production. Two Wisconsin Farmers -the Keefer Brothers- come to Alaska and float different rivers. They floated the Sheenjek their first season. They took a 30 day multiple species packtrain based hunt in the Yukon during their second season. This year they are floating down a river in SW Alaska. They generally use Larry Bartlett as their hunt planner for logistics, rafts, tents(they like the Arctic Oven Tents) so they have good gear. However, why a lot of Alaskans like it is that hunting in Alaska is tough and in a sense of Shadenfreunde (German Word meaning that we like watching folks suffer) these fellas get their behinds handed back to them. They have taken some caribou, a couple of moose and the jury is out on their current season but much of the show revolves them dealing with cold and misery which is just a part of life up here.
                  They have a very good film crew and the scenery is very good.

                  Sincerely,
                  Thomas

                    Alaska TV shows are just too fake to enjoy. All of 'em.

                        "Forum Wars--Surviving Winter in the Far North" It is on every day almost all year. The cast of characters is limited to those who have internet/chair access. The only bad part about the show is having to read instead of just listen and watch.

                            Gary is lucky to be alive for sure. Seems like a good guy. Haven't caught the show but a couple times.....

                            Chip and Agnes.....the real deal as we all know. Sue needs a man......or a woman, whichever she's "into", so she doesn't go absolutely crazy up there someday.....(but it's probably too late......lol)

                            Marty seems like a pretty good guy that knows what he's doing. But (even tho no in AK.) I really like the old boy Tom. The rest of them I really don't care for. Rich is a nutjob that thinks his sh*t don't stink.

                            Did they cancel the other one.....what was it where they raced from place to place in different areas of AK...??? If they did I won't miss it.......pretty much a joke.
                            Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

                              Watched ak outdoors twice, won't anymore.
                              LBZ, only watch it for the hailstones, I know that's real and I miss village life. The rest I can live without.
                              Not the kodiak guide show....ugh.
                              Not the mountain men
                              Ya pretty much don't like any of them....except LBZ.
