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.

How close to a critter have gotten or in this case how close has one gotten to you? I could have slapped this young ram. Even with a bum leg he still got around in the mountauns better than me.

Title Wave books in Anc. sells the books and dvd's. They have gone back to used books only by the way. A shame, as they were the best book store around.

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.

I have checked all the online download sites for Heimo's vids and can't find them. If anyone has a source would appreciate it or any other vids on true remote living.
