It’s that time of year again, hunting season! While there are many people in the state who choose not to hunt for their own reasons, the majority of Alaskans anxiously await this time of year to be able to harvest the most delicious wild game in the world. Moose, deer, caribou, bison… the list goes on and on. We have a bounty of natural resources available to us throughout the last frontier, but bringing home the bacon doesn’t always come easy – or without a fight.
As you’ll see in the heart-pounding video featured below, going into the raw and rugged areas of Alaska that are off the beaten path is fiercely dangerous. You have to be very knowledgeable of your surroundings, prepared for Alaska’s unpredictable elements and prepared for just about anything. Because if you aren’t properly equipped, the result of your negligence could literally be a life or death situation.
If you’ve never been deep into the Alaskan wilderness, be smart and consult with a local Fish & Game office in your area before going anywhere. Take a back-country education class or if you’re going hunting, consider hiring an experienced and reputable guide. Because in a place where the bears outnumber the humans, being on your toes is key to survival.
