Question...

Postby jayclarkie » Wed Nov 27, 2013 9:37 am

So, i was watching "Life Below Zero" last night, and two of the characters were zooming around on their boat blasting ducks...but, the theme of the show was dealing with the spring thaw...since the season starts in September, are these two committing game violations on national TV, or do members of the Inuit tribe get carte blanche when it comes to hunting? Also, there was another character, who clearly is no Inuit, talking about how he cant wait for the thaw to progress, so he can hunt the ducks on the lake near his house...am I crazy, or is National Geographic Channel promoting poaching?

From what you describe, it sounds like these are subsistance hunters. I have not watched the show so I cannot be sure. I am not saying mistakes don't happen but if the show is showing this, that is what I believe what you saw.
