Replying to 3 recent posts:

Btulloh - Internet is all over Alaska now. Urban areas have cable and the rural villages have large scale satellite or the newer microwave. Real bush areas can use a small dish HughesNet or similar system which I use all summer at my fish camp. Know a number of people that have no grid power, water, sewer, telephone but got $60/month internet. It's often real slow and limited (YouTube will not stream) but it's much wanted communication. More and more young people don't watch or own TV, they watch YouTube.

Magicman - I came to Tanana because it was the closest village to an bush area 40 miles north of it where I got dropped off by a bush plane in 1973 (lived there 11 years). It was Open to Entry Homestead Federal land but closed shortly after I landed. I got 5 acres there and still go out that way each winter trapping/hunting.

WV Sawmiller - I really enjoyed working on the TV show and with the great cameramen and people that did the film work. It was a small production company in NY and they all were like friends and took care of us I felt. Much different than the normal from what I've learned. The cameramen that went out in the bush with us were world class outdoorsmen and hardly got in our way and often helped break trail etc, The guy that was with me the first couple years had climbed Everest twice.
Shows are all different - the realer ones often get filmed real and not any script but once that footage gets to the big networks and they do their drama editing we are often portrayed in interesting ways. I have learned that is the price of getting in front of a national audience and from the beginning I looked at it as a way to educate people nationally on ethical uses of fur animals (trapping) and natural resources. I think we changed some minds positively. Some shows are 100% scripted and even don't live where they are filmed or are filmed in a different place.
It was a good part time job and hardly affected my lifestyle. Enjoyed learning about the whole industry - many of the cameramen had worked with big name sports and celebrity figures (Trump Apprentice) etc. and very interesting hearing their stories. Stan

Great to see you on the forum Stan, I am a fan of the show also.
What time of the year was the video? You seemed to have warm clothes on.
Is the river frozen yet?

Video was made last spring before the fish were migrating in good numbers. Just milling some lumber for some shacks we were building for housing at our fish camp. River was clear of ice and I was boating to the camp which is 40 miles upriver from the village where the family spends the winter. I'm at camp for 4 months steady each year.
