Wat he’s this documentary last night. It’s super good. Just thought I’d share. Available on YouTube, amazon Prime and some other outlets. Documentary on a crusty old trapper born in 1914 and he says thinks like he means em lol. As in he’s not too worried about your feelings and man he’s got some stories. Thought my brother was a man after stomping a coyote to death but when you watch a 95 year old dude walk up to a coyote in a victor and straight club the thing to death you feel like maybe you need to grow some more chest hair if you know what I mean... especially if you like the Wensel stuff you’ll like this.

I’ll have to look for it .... thanks for the heads up!
I love those old timers for my inspiration....Like Richard Proenneke on PBS building that Alaska cabin

What's it called?
That’s the name of the movie “Trapper Jake”
I'll watch it this week. I luv these guys and times. Tobinsghost comes from Tom Tobin who travelled the same mountains and high prairies that I hunt and fish here in Colorado.
I watched it a while back, pretty good. And all those coyotes killed and he never contracted rabies.

Thanx APauls, you got me with the Jack,Jake. Love hearin about those oldtimers, lookin forward to watchin it! I also read thru you and your brothers moose huntin thread last night, thoroughly enjoyed it! It was clear, and good to see, how each of you hoped for success for the other, and reveled in one anothers success as if it were your own! I couldnt help but be reminded of that Keith Whitley song brotherly love. There was mention in the thread of a possible caribou hunt last fall? Hopefully you guys made it happen and theres an upcoming thread of that adventure! Thanx again!
