I think this was Cabelas "Memories in the Field" with Dave Watson. They probably have a website and may have a link to order various episodes...This one is worth having in a video library.
The guide was affiliated with "Alaska Knives" or something to that affect? Ring a bell with anybody?
I know a lot of non-res complain about having to hire a guide but that footage there is exactly why. The hunter would have been bear scat if that guide did not do what he did. I'm not saying all non-res would react the same way but I think alot would.
+1And you think an Alaska resident with 13 months residency on his or her first hunting trip would have the knowledge and fortitude to do the right thing? That hunter's 22 year old cheerleader sister who had never been outside of Anchorage since she got off the airplane and was a resident could have guided him and it would have been legal.
It isn't about safety...its about the money. I'm not saying that is bad, but please just admit it.
