Scopes are just fogging devices in the cold.
The Soviets solved this by holding the head a bit further back and cocked, and you naturally breath away from the scopes, as well other Soviet scopes have eye cups that seal the rear lens to protect them from such.

Reloading is not common, but not uncommon. My wifes older brothers reload, and help her with such, when needed.

Open sight get snowed over at worst , usually. When shooting down hill, as we prefer, theres no hold over and shooting with the sight on 150 kinda takes care of a long range shots from above, that's why we have a favored place called "on High"

I was asked why I don't shoot on the show, and Ive explained before, and here, As to no firearms, Im suprized you don't already know, but the jist is that two years ago an Alaska State Trooper assaulted my oldest daughter, a child at the time. Well, the Trooper she was talking to stopped the assault and restrained the other trooper, then placed him a distance away from us and took the girl to a different place and finished the interview. He taunted us by takeing a draw stance and fondling his gun, it got very freeky, but others were there and more were arriveing so he quit that, but I was sure, as were others, that we were gonna get shot.
I was , at the time the vice Fire Chief here in Noorvik, and with Red Cross, The S&R and on a Disaster planning commition with our borough, and a trail assistance rider (-40 Towtruck/EMT kinda stuff)the law says I have to report any assault on any child, and I would have anyway.
Soooooooooooo , Anyway, it didn't get any better, as a couple days later I saw the Trooper who ,because he could arrive at any time and my daughter was going to be traveling (we often see troopers at the airport) and because it was obvious that nothing had been done for that, I got a restraining order for her safety, and the state went nuts on me.
Its all a matter of Public Record.

they tried to give me a 25,170$ bill for their flawed investigation, but the judge blocked that, then we went to court where I lost to an alterd tape, the ONLY evidence, besides trooper lies, to be used against me.
So I was found guilt of Felony purgery/False reporting and made a felon,last July............... so I had the tapes analized by two independent companys, Sandcastle recordings and Britesolutions audio forensics, and both show the AST tapes are a total farce.
I presented these at my sentanceing, where I recived 7 years and 3 month in total, 3 years X's 2 suspended, + 15 months to serve, last November.

http://www.thearcticsounder.com/arti...d_seeks_appeal

The article mentions one 11 second gap, but there were 14 separate gaps we know of. Gaps are impossible on digital recorders, the simply give an On Time and an Off time, and both officers had several on off times on their recorders that day, so They attempted to cover the assault and were successful so far. The assaulting officers tape was made from the rearranged tape of the officer who stopped the assault.

Try as they might, and they certainly gave it their best, but they didn't fool everyone.

Sooooooooooooooo after the sentancing I walked out of the court, went home , the judge allow'd me free until retrial, which isn't gonna happen , because the only evidence is fake, and proven so.
The Judge and most every Alaska State Trooper in Kotzebue Post, and the Special Prosacuter brought in by the state,The Alaska Beuro of Investigation Trooper also has complete knowlage of the felonius cuts, he heard them too, all who attended the sentencing all know about the evidence tampering. They say that Evil triumphs when good me do nothing, well I didn't see any good men, just a Judge who was mislead and a crew of Felons and those who aid/cover their crimes..........but I would not recant, I would not admit guilt where I had done no wrong.
I was never arrested, never read any rights, only summoned to Court, never spent a day in jail due to this, its simply "Life in Limbo" as to firearms, so I have been trapping, Fishing and using a bow and lance on Caribou, as you have all seen, and still do all but carry the rifle or shoot. Ive been driving the boat anyways, its teamwork, and driving on waterways or across frozen tundra requires someone, and its a joy having a front row seat with Agnes shooting, as it was when our boys were teens and doing such.

Archery and using a Lance with trapping has been the way I maintain. You might have noticed that my references to guns is in past tense....but I do look forward, as Time marches on.....


A couple things are looking quite positive;
So many people in Noorvik saw what happened that day, I get GREAT community support; Money, leagal help,and people offering other assistance has been wonderfull, and the community of Kotzebue has been terrific for the most part. I am councled on this event when Im out nuch more than I am about the show. I also have a Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer working on this now, as well, so as slowly as the grinder of Justice turns, soon to crush the lies and criminals who perpetuated them...... my redemption draws near.

These guys are the bad apples in the barrel, nothing more or less.

Archery isn't as nearly as productive as Rifles, its better that my wife shoots, but lancing Caribou last Fall was VERY productive!!

Having no guns in the house the last months has been weird.

My neighbor, Jim, also offers prayers,thank you, its a a very positive thing to do, but sometimes wisdom meeting reality gives me a smile, especially when he said to me said 'Just ask your self,'what would Jesus do?" and I told him "he should have got a lawyer!!! I should have gotten a laywer!!! Never, ever, get a Public Defender." ~~LOL!!~~

Funny thing is, Nat Geo still belived in me, from the start and my employment has really helped in that aspect. Were gearing up for more, X yer fingers for a season 2.

Chip, you come across as a stable believable individual. I am sorry for your trevails, and sincerely hope the perps are brought to justice sooner rather than later. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. Perhaps a defense fund could be set up at Wells Fargo so those of us who can, and have a will could donate.

Well, many people are scared to death of the AST, for good reason. The community as a whole is a large 'family' mostly related by blood or marriage, and enough people saw the doings of the day, so the truth is firmly established here in Noorvik.
Im in no need for a defence fund, but the idea is nice. I was done broke after doing repairs and such to my house, always expensive when its all flown in, when this hit, it took some doing, but Im financally stable at the moment and can shift for myself better, now. Again, for the offers and prayers, Im mucho appreciative!!

I look at the good things to keep the anxiety away; although heavily restricted in my doings, Ive deveolped an appreciation for a few things; Archery/lance hunting is tough, akin to a .22lr. Trapping was OK, mostly Fox, as most all the larger predators were looking for Caribou or the Rabbits, and both were scarse here on the delta. Staying close to home with out the freedom to move at will seriously deminished my catch. Returning home everyday seriously reduced my time out, as well.....but I hung with my kids more and worked on the house, yard, equipment, traps and snares and all. Then I gave most of it away and Im starting out with new stuff. I had the time to make myelf a new outfit, all but short of a gun and ammo. Sleds too, and all kinds of boating/Ocean Hunting tools and implements, and gave them to my sons, so Im not sitting idle, just comming up with things too do and the materials to do it with......The camp even has a new outhouse location, fish drying racks, stacks of fire wood, and the inside has a counter with washbasins to do the dishes on, and soon beds and shelves....in the hunting life, you have to have good equipment, and hand made is the best, like an Italian suit.

caribou, my hat is off to you!

I need to sort out what we're willing to pay for our television package with She Who Watches Most Of It... hee! I've been wanting NatGeoChannel for some time now, and now I want to see your show.


Thanks for sharing your story. :-)

That sure wasn't the case where "I" lived in Alaska... Too bad it's that way where you live.

I've personally known a few Alaska State Troopers and their familys, and shot with and against several more, they all were great guys, on the job and off.

I'd imagine very little of what you hunt goes to waste. What are some of the things you do with the game besides the eat the meat?

Caribou I greatly enjoy watching that show (my brother lives near Palmer but your world makes his look easy by comparison -and his idea of a rifle is 375 H&H.). Glad to hear the backstory on your situation and hope justice prevails.

I'm also a retired cop and I have to say that I did see justice once or twice in the 22 years I was a cop - but it was purely incidental to everything else going on in the court rooms I attended down here in Florida.... Your advice about getting a lawyer should be written in every one's book the day they become an adult, period (unfortunately...).

Well, at least let me set it straight as to my view on 'cops';

I have many friends that are police, even Police Cheifs, in Kotz and these small villages. No problem with their doings or departments, they run a great show and all with great respect and are outstanding in doing what they do, very professionally.
SnR's, deathes, suicides, crashes, fires, ect, I've worked with many a Trooper over many years, all, very professional.

I have no beef with 'law enforcment' at all,(some peole hate police, just because they are police) but the wall of Blue I hit makes me concerned, and I see that this kind of behavior is tollerated and they proctect the criminals, as well as further victemize those who were assaulted and then framed. THAT is discerning, to say the least. That is the AST here. A great many have first hand knowlage, and yet the perps still work like nothing happend...

This was the FIRST, and hopefully last incident Ive seen involving such behaviour. However, its needing to be adressed by their supiors, and I fear they allready know, and yet they do nothing. Fact is, after its all settled, Im hopeing for an improvement, and hopefully the folks in the villages will come to trust AST again, but Im not the only victem. Destroying the relationship that AST had with these villages in the 80's and 90's is whats happend. The AST has made law enfocement in the villages very diffacult. Far too many folks here saw/were victems that day. What has transpired has only gone to show to this region is that when people are victemized bythe AST, that they can only expect things to get worse. This is not Right at all, and not how lawenforcement shoould act or be viewd. It has become a very polarizing ordeal and most folks ,now, will not cooperate with or call the AST because they outcome is uncertain and noone can tust that the right things be done anymore by the AST. This needs to be adressed. When you publicly victemize people in an isolated village of 685, with many witness's, this is what happens. More for than myself, this needs to be corrected.

Someday, soon, this will all turn around and we will see an improvement, just give it time, the wheels are in motion.


I went through this last Nov, and Ive had a difficult liveing because of it, but I try my best to look forward, and knowing it will end is comforting. I try my best to not let it interfear with my life, posting here, working on the show, ect....... High Road and you guys have kept me SANE!!

Thank You one and all!!! Really.

Ill tell ya too, the wheels are in motion for season 2, andin Sept, the next/last six episodes of Season 1 will be on, I hope you like them two.

We do as much as we can with our Catch; even a dog has to eat Skins and such become museum displays and arts/crafts to make the $$ to make the world go by fast, powerd by gasoline

So when is your retrial? And if theres a retrial, does that mean the first was thrown out as a mistrial?

Since the only evidence they have is totally tamperd with, and the review for retrial is in March, but the lawyer is sure that it will be much sooner. This is now Federal, and I believe they fix departments that are corrupted in such ways.


There will be no re-trial. If the AST dosent kill me first, the evidence will be seen quite well that theres nothing to base a trial on, and then the case will be dropped/dismissed, Im sure, but I wont drop anything until its expunged and the felonies committed against me and others are addressed and the public safe again. We cannot have criminals with badges, this must be corrected. The Federal Investigator that came here and I discussed the evidence with said that the tampering was denying me my Right to a fair trial and was important to them because it involves Police. I played the most obvious cuts for them to easily recognize, and they took a copy to deal with when they left town. So Im not sure when anythings going to happen, it took a loooooong time to get this far.

I will not stop because I told the truth, and although its been buryied pretty deep, the truth cannot be changed, and the judicial system hasn't completely failed, its only been fooled for awhile. The other victims have ben talking with a lawyer now, too, that I think is going to do a class action suit, so Im not the only one.

I will not stop because I will have to do paperwork for the rest of my life.

@Caribou

This retired LEO knows full well there is a country mile between the 'law' and JUSTICE.

I hope you win on both counts !.

You strike me as a honest and VERY hard working man that just wants the best for himself & his family.

Keep to the high road, and the win will taste all that much better .

Caribou,

I'm sorry to hear about the nonsense you are having to deal with.

It looks like a lot of open tundra you are crossing. Could you use a lifted 4x4 with large tires and lockers or mattracks to cross the terrain, or is the high price of fuel counter-productive? I think it would be cheaper then a Sno-Cat.

Is it open season to hunt whatever you need to eat all year, all animals? I notice your location is NW Alaska. I remember reading something about professional poachers up there armed with automatic military weapons to include belt-fed machineguns, helicopters, thermal sights, night vision and other high tech equipment. Walrus, seals, bear were their targets mostly. You hear anything about that near you? I understood they operated in completely uninhabited areas.

Caribou, Sorry to here of your problems with L.E.! This has become to common for justice to take a vacation! I had my civil rights violated by local P.D. for open carry in my home! After making complaints I have been harrassed even more. No agency would do anything! Now in federal court. I was told that if I drop the charges, I can be charged! I live on SSI & don't have alot of money & may have to drop the case because of that! ( Never new you had to pay to take the bad guy to jail!). Injustice of this kind is intolerable! I hope you get this taken care of soon! I think your show is great! I would love the solitude but not the cold! I think your show also gives us a view that most will never get to see or understand! Thank you &your family for that. Also I like the others &think they show us all that survival is different for us all! Good luck &I hope & pray you get some justice &it doesn't put you to far into debt!

Thanks for the heads up, guys. Haveing Lawenforcement go nuts isnt new, but it must be delt with for the common good. I wish you good luck Krupparms, you, my friend, will need it.

I am sooooooooo dissapointed with the AST's doings.

I see , too , that the adress i referred to above has been "changed' so here it is again;

http://www.thearcticsounder.com/arti...d_seeks_appeal

Alaso, to answer the question about hunting seasons and such, we ALL inthe State of AK have to folow the allowed seasons and bag limits. Caribou in my game Unit are huntable every day, "But" in Summer they are 500 miles North , on the Norh slope, and in winter 200 or so miles South, so they pass by twice a year, and we get what we can, when we can, especcially with gas at 8$ a gallon.

The high tec shootings your referring to were the Russian Military and ChukChi natives of that region were just trying to eat, when the Gov there didnt send resupply or pay their troops for months on end, so they 'used what they had" and fed themselfs, and quite a few "off base" folks to boot......no big deal when you know what it is to be hungry.
Now with a Stable Russia, such happenings are seldom, if nonexistant. The Alaska Whaling Commission also alloted a percentage of its 'strikes" on Whales to Russian Natives of the Far East, so they can better fend for themselfs, as the "gov" over there used to controll such and now, basicly dosent exist, so folks are free to fend for themselfs again.

Well, I should say that Season #2 is gonna start getting filmed soon, and the final 6 episodes of the first season will arrive to your TV soon

still, if you have questions, I have answers....when Im home ~~LOL!!~~

Speaking of being self reliant, I found this documentary about Russian trappers on the Taiga in Siberia to be fascinating. Truly self reliant peoples have skills most of us cannot even begin to comprehend.

Ive seen that, 'Happy People', its excellent!!

The snowmachines, heating with wood, trapping and hunting, as well as useing local materials to make arts and crafts to sell to buy mor gas and bullets...That I can relate to...

They havent been long in being 'self reliant' by law, as under Communisim, key parts of their lives and organization of their doings were controlled by the gov........but they never forgot what Hard work was, and that will get anyone outta a hole, anywhere on earth.

Not haveing the helocopter of goods or going home arrive musta been maddening...... that was an eye opener.

Back in the days of "brigades" (Ive met alot of ChukChi) Reindeer Herders, Trappers, and Ice Pack Hunters were 'issued ' rifle, certain ammounts of ammo and the snowmachines were of 1970's designs. They had to turn over the major proportions of their catch and livestock products, when the hearded Reindeer. A ship came up and hunted Whales for them, the locals were not allowed to whale, now they have gotten adjusted, do most all for themselfs as well as develope outlets for sales of their products,as well as tourisim............ and figured out how best to do so well that modern equipment is sustainable in their Subsistence economy. Until the advancements of the 2000's, they had 50's era tools and machines, as well as a terrible transportation system, as all things Soviet rotted and fell apart.

I bet gas is EXPENSIVE, and the rides are used to haul loads, and most else done on foot, no playing around. They had a hard time across the straights in the later 90's, north of the Bering Sea, and many almost starved. Now, its good to see the Russians and Siberians have an easy enough time to do for themselfs and even drag a camera man along

His family tried again in the summer, but let's face it - the arctic is a pretty harsh place. The guy just isn't going to be seen again, period. One bad decision really can get you killed there, sometimes within sight of civilization. It is an eerie feeling to be out on a snow machine and feel the cold chipping away at you and to know that you really are mortal. If that doesn't humble you, then maybe you deserve to freeze...
And if witnessing break-up doesn't humble you, you definitely deserve to freeze!

The guy from WI is gone now and I doubt anyone will ever know what happened to him.
This prompted my boss up there to advise me to wear bright clothing when I went out and always carry a gun.
Personally, I'm pretty sure that right now, I'm not quite up to the test either.
