It's a whole new deal when you have to not only survive the frigid cold, but also hunt in the process. It's a completely different deal when you go out to check your nets and have to chop through 3 feet of ice just to see if your net is empty or not. It's a little different when you return to a moose kill for the rest of your meat only to be met by an angry grizzly who has claimed it for himself. Until you have fallen through the ice at -20 degrees by yourself while checking traps and have to survive the night with no shelter and soaking wet you will not know the type of life of an arctic subsistence hunter.
Why are you complaining and looking for sympathy here? You chose that crazy isolated lifestyle! Invading wild animals land. Of course you will be met by a grizzly, you are stomping on his land! And he is gonna fight for his food and his land!
