As for Marty, real men don't trap furs so that vain, vapid white trash women can wear them to "dress up." I hope that asshat gets caught in one his own traps.
LOL, this should turn into a good thread.

^ I imagine that all manner of false parallels might ensue. Before that happens, I'll just say that I've got nothing against the average mofo who hunts caribou for the family table and puts the hide to good use. But this "man" kills animals such as lynx so that urban ***** can look glamorous in the eyes of other urban *****.

LMGDAO -- how ridiculously maudlin.

I'd gladly tell this POS in person what to do with his "inner spirit."

I think it's telling AF that the biggest advertisers on this show are products for ED.

I myself don't have a problem with trapping, but that's just funny

There is nothing wrong with trapping/hunting. It is a lifestyle and certainly no worse than any other consumer lifestyle. I did a little trapping many years ago and it is damn hard work, poor return for the time and energy. I did take a moose every other year and dearly miss the meat.

I see a lot wrong with trapping so that insipid women can "look fashionable," and as I already clearly stated, it's not in the same category as hunting. Nice try trying to make it about that, though. SMH.

I don't see the trapping quite the same. It is "generally" done as a means of income. The bulk of the trapping is for martin in Interior and almost all of the folks I knew managed their areas well taking mostly the males out of the population. They have a short life cycle, maybe 3 years and the small harvest is in no way determinant to the health of the population.

I don't see many folks wearing fur in the USA anymore. I think that has gone by the wayside and perhaps it is still fashionable in Europe.

As for hunting, if it is done for a food product and carefully, it too is fine. For example, we cut and process our own meat and I only took a smaller moose every 2 years because that is what we could consume along with quality fish. We made the mistake of going to Florida (got out of there pronto) and the people there hunt for the thrill of the kill ... nothing more, but they do eat the deer. Other than coyotes, no one traps much.

I personally don't think it is reasonable to say trapping is bad and hunting is good ... both end up killing something and the reason to do it is subjective.

Now I bet if they had a trapping season on politicians/congress you'd be all in ... LOL! ME TOO!

Then we see it differently. Eating is about survival; wearing furs is about vanity. Trapping is a gruesome way for a wild creature to die; hunting at least is usual a swift kill (in case someone comes along and starts blaring about what about the time my uncle shot a deer and only wounded it and blah blah it ran though the woods blah and died a blah blah gory death somewhere because we blah couldn't find it blah -- fing save your straw men for someone else). There's a market for them, btw. I imagine many of the animals Marty kills end up in Asia as well as in the closets of vapid Eurotrash.

Love the show! You can tell some of this stuff is "scripted" for TV if you would for certain situations, but overall quite entertaining. The narrator does a great job as well.

Yes. I really enjoy this show. I watch several Alaska related shows and live vicariously.
