Cool video.
I get a kick out of some of these guys though. They live in a wood house, many times have 2-3 wood/log trappers shacks, heat with wood, and clear wood/trees to make trapping trails, which is all fine and extremely cool. But, when they come across a logging operation where wood is being cut for the rest of the country itís a travesty. Hard to have it both ways. That timber is a renewable resource just like beaver and is being managed and harvested as such. JMO.

Since what the late 60ís Iíve been flying into far bush camps and seeing the devastation a forest fire up there can bring is nuts. Even as of late with all of our technology we canít bring those hot ones to bear and for as far as you can see itís lakes and grey ash covered rock. Lightening is the starting culprit as a rule.
No different than the wildlife, proper management of the forests is important. Those big forest fires have bad meanings for both the wildlife, and Iíve seen where too much ash washed into a lake/waterway has a very detrimental affect on the fish.

Good video I remember reading that though Grey Owl was a conservationist maybe even preservationist he was English and just decided to live more like a Native and did lectures and made a living out of it.

The guy traps in a nice area.
I have trapped the Temagami area before-lots of rock.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I thought the video had some great messaging for the general public. The idea of "Stewards of the Land" , Sustainable Harvest, (Un) balance of nature good to relay these days.
We need to frame what we do (with some articulation, thought) or possible lose it. The urbanization of N.A. is definite threat - no understanding of what we do / why it even exists.

I will just stop there - end with .. Great Video. As far as logging, I am not against it specifically or any industry activities, but sometimes question the sustainability of it.... Logging has accelerated in BC, AB (partially pine beetle challenge) to the point that old growth is becoming 'islands" in a way... not the norm of endless wilderness / big timber as it was just a couple decades ago. Our marten catch declines are a great "canary in the coal mine" warning perhaps?

I'm pro logging. Although I do agree that it needs to be done in a sustainable manner. Just my worthless 2 cents.
