Well the Almighty Alaskan Thread was a hit. Journals took hold and continue to be a favorite. Hopefully this thread will do what the Almighty Alaskan Thread did. Maintain it popularity to the point where a person doesn't have to look to far to find it.
Maybe if we can make it worth while as a place to post good videos it will get pinned to the top.

I would like to propose that we make a listing of videos here that are worth watching. Trapping mostly but any Northern outdoor video is welcome. It is the nature of this forum. Trapping, Hunting, Fishing, Cabin Life. Wilderness living.
The best we can find.
Youtube, Photobucket etc. Try and keep the banter to a minimum unless it adds or is in relevance to a video.
The Almighty is the place for chit chat.
Just got done watching a good Youtube and you have to wade through a number of them to find a good one.
I would like to ask that the video all be appropriate for our young audience. No links to video that are have inappropriate language etc. As far as I am concerned this is all of the Wild North videos. Please don't post them. Good video but too much foul language. Not needed here.

If you use the video embed box to the right of the photo inserter on the tool bar you can get the videos like they are below.


It looks better than a link. If you want to view full screen click on the video and go to youtube.


I will lead it off.
This is a personal favorite. ;0)
Some Lynx Trapping in Western Alaska.


This video of the Rowland family is always fun to watch.


A good one with a lot of trapped wolves. These guys don't show a lot of how to but some great wolf video and give you some idea what a productive wolf line looks like.




A follow up to the wolves above.


Same family. Bait station results.


Just started this 5 parts series. Great video.

Thanks for posting the video's. Don't have much experience with video but will try to post some later. Really enjoyed Heimo's video. Very very impressive what they have done. I wonder if there is a common thread in that after about a dozen winters the draw of family and other issues made them start to commute instead of year round. After eleven years my bride and I started commuting also. We are no where near what Heimo and family have done but have some similairities. Would be nice to have a year round bush rat convention somewhere and compare notes. Its a shame most peoples hard won knowledge isn't shared.

Getting to glimpse into the life of Heimo was a treat indeed indeed and you're right there's a lot of knowledge that is not shared from people like these.

I often thought it would be a lifestyle that I could live with if I had my family with me like Heimo did.
Having a cabin on my trap line is still a dream I would love to see come true. However the logistics just aren't there right now.

Thanks for the thread.
I spent the last hour watching vids
28 minutes of Heimo's vid, which is cool.
I really like that guy the way he thinks and lives.
Going to watch more of the vids later on.
Thanks again.

Thought I would post this as the concept might come in handy for someone in the future. It features a lift system we used to take moose legs from a canoe up to a high bank.

It is a short movie I put together of my daughter moose hunt and some fun footage of the contraption below in action.



Well getting a moose from bank to boat has always been looked at by me as an opportunity to well lets say, be innovative. Especially when it involves high banks, and driftwood laden beaches. This time it was a new twist. Canoe to bank.
We landed the canoe at our shortest packing distance at a high bank. I remembered last year getting Jenna's monster up the bank with Garrity, Jenna and myself with a bad back. I was thinking. It was time to get creative.
I had tree climbers so I put them to use.
Cutting a couple of trees and building an a frame we put some rope, a pully, and my tree climbers to work. I attached a pully about 20 feet up in a tree. Put a loop in the end of the rope and put my foot into it. I went down and the moose went up.

The first hoist was rather interesting but it got smoother from there. As you will see from the video.
Helps to have a patient partner that also was wanting to keep his back happy also.

I believe that was one of Marty Stoufers videos. As many times as that cat got a paw on the bunny, I can only think that it had been declawed!!

I agree with NH114. That cat must be declawed.

It's such a bummer that Stouffer staged a lot of his films. When I was a kid, I couldn't wait for his show to come on every week.

Has anybody ever posted a video of a beaver escaping from a 330? I have one, but have no idea how to put it on here. It is not graphic, but educational. The beaver was mostly unharmed except maybe some bruising.

The Beav what are you talking about. No one is sending me any tapes. As I have apologized before I will be happy to do it again. Crap happens. And believe you me if I had them they would be send to you a long time ago like I said then. Seems a lot more than a few tapes got lost in the move from the bush and a divorce. I am sorry I was not able to come up with them. Sorry you are holding on to the grudge so long but I think it is time to move on and film another one.

I bought a contour roam HD camera after watching Akhowlers videos last spring. Should be fun using it this winter. I tried it around the house so far but haven't used it in the field yet. Should be handy out on the line this winter, and for bear, moose, and Speck Hunting. Want to find a mount for my bow and firearms.

Good. Hard to get used to shooting video that you can't see when you take it. Going to do some under water with it this summer.

Thanks for sharing Len! Brings back memories. Have you tried the conventional gear? The way the boats I worked on were set up it was easier to do conventional than snap on, but it looks like you have it figured!

My boat can't handle a lot of weight. I am forced to take my gear to the front of the cabin when not in use to balance things out. 2500 lbs of fish is a big load for my boat. Pushed 3000 but not fun. I fish very limp soft gear so so I can get a lot of line in a brute tub. A lot of the time were baiting as I set the hooks out as well. I put together the whole song and dance to be done by myself if needed. Any guesses on the throttle assembly?

Conventional gear was always setting for speed, like back in the derby days when you had everyone and their brother out there to compete with and you only had a limited amount of time. Object was to get as much out and cover as much ground as you could, then haul it all back and worry about fixing gear later. Very nice set up for what you are doing Len. I kind of wish some of my friends had some of that for when they set subsistance gear. Hauling by hand sucks.

I was interested also.
He is using a large snap swivel of some sort. Looks pretty cool for a quick attachment.
This is as close as I could get to a photo of it. They sell them in Homer at the Gear Shed for sport halibut fishing.

lb I have to differ with you. That otter was never snuffed out on that video. Don't think it was a belisle conibear. He was still going when the camera went off. I would have been surprised if it had. To much space there for them to still breathe.

I saw that, but the other end seemed like a slip-in snare or something. I looked like he put the end of the cable around the tree, then put the cable in the end somehow and cinched it down tight and it stayed there. The whole thing was very fast, I may look further into it.

You're right FT, went back and watched it again. Thought it was nerves the first time, due to such little twisting. Looks like he's still fighting, even with the good neck catch.

Definatly not a belisles.. I froze the video and zoomed in on it, looks like a northwoods.

How to Skin and Flesh a beaver in the Athabaskan native style.
I found this video interesting in how he opens up the beaver. One thing that always adds to the difficulty in both clean and rough skinning is the fat removal on the skin right adjacent to the center cut. Cutting it open after you skin/flesh it would eliminate that. I am going to try it and maybe try and incorporate something similar into my beaver skinning.

Thougth I would add my- Clean skinning a Beaver. This video playlist should take you into all three videos one at a time, one after the other on clean skinning a beaver. Youtube would not let me do and HD Video longer than 15 min so I broke it into three segments. This approx. 60-62 inch beaver is cleaned skinned in less than 19 min. It shows some of the techniques I have come to depend on for doing a clean job relatively fast as well as some new techniques that were just adopted into my methods. The video is shot with a GoPro head cam and provides a video from the unique position of the skinners view. Hope you are able to pick up a few tips from this series of videos.

I would reccommend watching it larger directly on Youtube.

Great post Len. I see similarities in how we skin. I too prefer clean skinning. The use of the hook and line is a great help I agree, hate to not use it. The spade you use is interesting. Never seen that done before. Looks like it works!

My best was 12 minutes, but that was towards end of season one year. At the beginning it was closer to 30.

Keep up the great videos:)

I felt much the same way as you on this trigger. I just could not wrap my head around it. Knowing that I was probably not going to ever use it I decided to not pursue it. However last night this youtube was on the side bar of the Happy People.
This video gives a perspective that really explained it well.

That is pretty cool. A few years ago I got into a surface bite with that many halibut around. They attack anything. They would attack the lead weight as often as the bait. My daughter was splashing her hand in the water and almost got bit. She would have had she not taken her hand out of the water.

Well it has sheep. But to get to just harvest one for food off your snowmobile like that happens in only a few remote areas. There are trophy hunts but that is a whole different story.

Good Stuff Temple. We all find ourself with less than the perfect tool. A pocket knife will do if needed.
I really liked this video. He uses one of my favorite tricks. Using a line to hold the legs where I want them.
The belly hair patch removal is one I would like to try but feel it may be a little hairier than just a single slit.
A saw makes it easier but many times I don't have one with me at gutting time. This guy is truly a professional. We can all learn a few tips from him. His rib meat removal is splendid.

I am a pretty close trimmer and not so sure taking between the ribs woud be worth it unless you ground very soon after. And they were very clean in side. Never been a rib eater. But there is a lot of burger outside them for sure. The little quarter inch depth of meat you actually get from between is, well frankly not much worth boning. But I will try this method in the future.

Was looking around Youtube last night and stumbled upon this video.
It was an enjoyable watch. Some pretty realistic video situations. Very light on the trapping but great cinematography and just some fun watching. A lot better than the reality shows on tv right now.
A good movie to watch. Be sure to watch on Youtube in full screen. Some great scenes to be in awe of.

This guys videos are pretty cool.



I had been clean skinning beaver and wasn't completely satisfied with my results, so after watching his videos I did this;



Happier with this, I just wasn't catching onto the clean skinning.

Been meaning to watch "The Last Trapper" a couple posts up, about 20 minutes in now it's pretty cool!

Be safe out there!

Awesome Temple. Here is a few ideas.

1. Try putting your beam at a more vertical angle. Seems more comfortable for me.
2. Have you tried the shovel and hooks like in my 3 part clean skinning video for the clean skinning part. I think your really onto something there with the two part system. Most errors on a beaver will be made using a two handled flesher on the easy to flesh areas on a beaver. The shovel is really fast and clean. The perfect combination for what your trying to do.
3. Make an apron out of a garbage bag. and tie it around your waist to keep it from sticking. Won't have to deal with the towel.
Fun to develop techniques that work for you. Thanks for sharing. Your now a star.

Ill go check the ice tomorrow I have one trap to check any ways. Hopefully set a couple swinging suzies. Here is the video from last year just to get you ready. I wish I could find a trail cam that would work under water. That would make a super video. I see fish cams in Canadian Tire that run off a truck battery one of those might work but editing would be a ton of work.
When you starting beaver trapping?

A video that shows the simple change in setup that makes the difference between a 5 to 1 and a 9 to 1 pulley setup.
Good one to watch.


Using just carabiners and small diameter blue steel rope which slides throughout the carabiners easily it makes for a great system to pull things out.

Aknative that was a cool find on the snowshoe video. This is great stuff!!!
My favorite part was watching him split the birch with the wedges. Reminded me of the Russian film. Happy People of the Taiga.
Inspires me to try and make a pair some day. Just so I could say I did it.

Here are the companions.

I was not going to but I really want to read some trapper talk not concerning Al Bundy or the Homeless. I really like the hand of God and climate change threads though. Some real stuff to think about on those sites. Check out the wolverine,hardly moved in the snare. Used a stinger spring. Really efective I could have replaced the snare and the set would have bee fine to reuse if the season was not over.

FT - "That was cool. Man how did they film those shots?"

I understand they had a remote camera inside a fake hunk of floating ice for the water shots. I suspect they filmed all the underwater shots of the bear in advance and just cut them to make a sequence. The hunting scenes were shot with a long lens and some good editing pulled the whole story together. It was a great piece of film and I was pulling for the polar bear. I Wonder what would happen if the bear was stalking an Inuit hunter staking out a blow hole, would a hunter even see the bear sneaking up?

I have not heard of "choke down" if you can explain I will definitely try it. Always good to learn better methods. The reason I started shooting lynx is one time I caught a big lynx I was trying to catch for a while. I got off my ski-doo to walk up to it to put a snare on its neck. It made one final big pull busted out of the trap and took off into the bush. Got me paranoid of loosing my lynx. But if you method works I will try it and include it on the videos next season and give you credit for teaching me something.

Ha Ha. Sounds like you have done it all ready Muskrat. Just a matter of choking the down with something. My preferred method is to use a chunk of 16 gauge wire in a simple noose fastened to a 2-4 foot long pole. It holds its shape better than a snare and easier to fasten to the pole. It is aways with you and easily made up on site if needed.
I hear you on the jump outs however. I always make sure they are caught well to start with. I have had it happen as well. But the method is by far preferred over shooting unless absolutely necessary.

Kinda stunned for a second I took off running after it and in under 200 yards I caught up to it and chased it up a tree. Grabbing a good branch I climbed up after it and smoked him right out of the tree.

I had that happen too. Trying to get good photos for an article in the TPC. Was dragging a trap. I sent my son after it to chase it out of the willows while I cruised the border. At one point I saw it. It had hung up in the crotch of an alder tree. If he had walked my way at al it would have been free. So I pressed it fast with looped wire in hand. His foot and trap caught in the crotch. I put a loop over the head and ended that potential loss. Was my lucky day. No gun!

Man got me excited I thought you were logging already. You see that video of the caribou flotting down the Porcupine river on the ice during the break up in Old Crow. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/caribou-adrift-as-ice-breaks-up-near-old-crow-yukon-1.2636302 Not sure if it works but there is a link to it from CBC North. Now that would be cool logging for caribou.

Our ice is gone now aswell, no logs not even sticks water is so low. Tough to even hunt muskrats you cant chase them through the bush with boat the thick parts of the willows are still out and the boat gets hung up.
