I ventured over to Kalispell once, but, never went back, lost nothing there. LOL Mountains do`nt do much for Me, well, at least the Mountains that are filed with trees. After living My life out here on the plains, it just does`nt seem normal to Me to not be able to see for more than a hundred yards or so. LOL
Missed the three episodes tonight, was at My sisters setting with Mine 95 Y.O. Mom while My BIL and sis went to town to have a night out for supper with some friends.
About ten minutes before the series comes on the power went out. -24, winds at eight, bringing it to -42 and hoping the utilities co. would get there and get the line fixed before the shows was done, no such luck. crap. LOL
Hows Your daylight hours there, now. Here sun arises at 7:30 and sunset at 4:15, just curious is all.

here in the Arctic, were getting dawn around 10, sun up about 11, sundown around 2 and dark around 3ish, a time for makeing arts and crafts, set traps and such, but exceedingly nast weather is apon us, 30 above and drizzel, crusting ice on everything, putting water on our river and expected for a couple days. This stuff ices up Tundra and small Caribou and Mice dont fare well. windy too.

Does Miles City still have "Pine Hills" nearby? Never went,myself..... but thats all I knew about the town ~~LOL!!~~ Lived in Billings and Lockwood when I was younger too, I loved tehYellowstone, there were alotta rainbows and Burbot in that river ;D Kinda kicked off my playing out habbits....

DM and DPris: Cannot debate with people who stray from facts. "Living in AK" has nothing to do with anything! Nor was there any indicator that I lived in AK in the past… interesting that people here make erroneous conclusions. It is also interesting that when one's contradictions in black and white are pointed out, they whine about being beat up! Ridiculous! I will not be blamed as the reason for "shutting this thread down." An intelligent conversation regarding "reality" shows cannot be expected here.

Love LBZ… Caribou… and Andy and Kate.. and Erik! Hope everything goes well with Caribou's legal issues.

BYE!!

veggies?

I heard Glenn say that you have to eat fat from your game because if you only eat meat, you will get sick. This is not an exact quote.

My Son Kory, west of Wasilla, does`nt like it too, when there is a freeze over then melts or rains upon it, sure messes up fishing through the ice.
Just the cycle of things I`d guess.

Pine Hills is still there, ten miles east of town, good hunting in there, Mulies, white tail, turkeys, and now, the Mountain Lions is coming back, with a vengeance, Having seasons on those now, even Elk, over counter license is available, must not shoot them on gubment land though, must be shot on private propity, most of that is tied up with the outfitters and people leasing up hunting rights though.
To the south is the "Custer National Forest" that range is a sort of a branch off from the Big Horns west of Sheridan Wyo. elevation near the 'White Tail Ranger Station" goes up to near 5,000 feet, those begin about 65 miles to the south of Miles City, along the Tongue River Road.
Best Burbot fishing here is in the Powder River, about 30 miles east, also in the Yellowstone here too, but it seems they like the sand bars in the Powder, if there is water in it. LOL
I do`nt think I`d like Billings, it is getting big, biggest city in the state right now, Laurel and Billings is about totally grown together. I give a friend of Mine that lives on west King Ave. Used to be outside the city, has grown around His subdivision, Tell Him Hows He liking living in East Laurel. LOL My Brother used to live in the heights and He`d ask Him Hows He like living in West Huntley. LOL
I do fish through the ice on the Yellowstone, using cut poles, tie a string towards the end, bait up the hook, usually with minnows, shove it through the ice and stick the end in the mud in the bottom of the river, hang out, do some target shooting or coyote calling, go back and check the sets, usually Burbot, some is big, almost as long as the tail gate of the pickup, a lot of fun and goood eatin too.
This winter storm is over, leaving it twennyfive below, wind chill`s into the fourteys below, it`s a makin some ice now, by golly. LOL Soon, very soon, there`ll be enough ice to go punch us some holes, haul is in some Pikes on the ends of the spear. LOl
I`ll be watchin You. LOL in a good sort of a way.

Did that so us folks in the sunshine belt can get a feeling of the hours of daylight You are having there.
Funny, how the sun sort of follows the horizon over there. Near Wasilla, January-February, sun comes up in the almost strait to east, then sets in the east south east, summer times different, comes up in the, just barely, east side of north, travels the horizon around and sets in the just barely west of north. LOL an experience in itself.

IIRC the lack of vit C is what causes scurvy. Scurvy killed a lot of early arctic/antarctc explorers. I believe raw seal blubber, amonst other things, also contains vit C and will prevent scurvy.

We pick massive ammounts of berries, almost a 100 gallons a year, as well as bucket apon bucketMusru, a root thats sweet like a carrot, Kushimuk, also known as "eskimo rhubarb', Surra from he willows (Glenn ate them, but far to advanced in the season) Beach greens and such.
Raw meats and fats from land animals has lots of Vitimen C as well as Seal Blubber, for sure. Heat destroys such, and eating frozen raw meats dipped in seal oil are way scurrvy proof. Explorers were known for cooking all meats and arriving for wimter with out a good supply of preserved greens or berries, it killed alotta them.
Unfortunatly for Glenn, he does not want 'culture', while my wife tribe's entire 'culture', even evolved as it is today, is based on Hunting/Fishing/Gathering/Trapping/Tradeing, and all the good info and ways that were developed to survive and thrive, not just eek out a solitary and lean living. I hope he carrys on with his ways and improves so much he stays happy, where ever that would be.

I find the whole how interesting and hope there is another season in the works no matter which characters are featured. I record each episode and watch them twice. I got my brother and his wife interested, they like watching the adventures of the Hailstone family best. Good shooing Agnes!

Caribou: I notice that your children seem to have better respect for others than those kids I see on the other north woods shows. The language is so bad on some of those shows it is almost a continual beep.
If the language is any gauge of the morality of those people than they will not last long.
I know it is tough to bring up kids in such environments when all the others are so vile but your show has the better following and that is why I think.

Life Below Zero

You can watch them on YouTube. There were ten episodes of what I believe to be Season One and four episodes of Season Two.

Caribou - Thanks for posting here. I enjoy watching LBZ and learning what must be done to survive in the harsh environment of the Arctic Circle. Its good to see your children involved in the activities with you and your wife.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Stay safe in all your endeavors.

Thanks for all the interesting information in this thread. It's taken me a while, but I've read through the entire thing. Quite a bit different from my life in a Louisiana suburb.

I enjoy the show and look forward to future episodes.

I found it really strange how the sunrise/sunset seemed to migrate so far - not sure, but it seemed like more than 90 degrees - when I lived up North last year. It was also strange to have it be -20 degrees with the sun still up at 2 AM. Almost like an alien world.

And the people who made their lives there for ten thousand years or more in a very harsh climate... I never doubt that they were some tough and highly intelligent people.

I would love to but I, as of yet, do not have one, moneys too tight here so I probably could`nt afford to get one before departure time. I`ll be saving all I can for the journey.
Is what I do have is a 1917 U.S. Remington Enfield, would that work ???
A Remington 700 30-06, or a High Wall 45-70, or, an M1, a M1A1 or even a Ruger 243.

I will say, from what i've seen, no one who lives up north worried too much about regs, they just hunt, shoot and kill what ever they want, any time they want, spring fall or when ever! I've even seen natives jump shooting ducks right off their nest and takeing all the eggs.
I've seen the same thing. Can't say as though I blame them either. It's still very much the frontier up there and people do what they have to.

I`m a waiting in anticipation for the new premier. I watched the trailers, looks like an exciting new season.
I might not pack any firearms to Alaska this time, every time I haul a couple over there My son talks Me into leaving one or two. LOL
I`m a m,aybe just borrow from His collection. The last rifle I took Him was a .375 Ruger, built on an 03A3, that should take care of about anything that might need taken care of. LOL
