Off the grid ...pioneering...Saskatchewan ..with Argos , Stihl chain saws , etc . Good story line at best for entertainment purpose.

A bit away from real life and inaccurate. Just my thoughts.

Looking forward to a new episode of "Sons of Winter" this week. I was lucky enough to experience that environment and state from personal experience it is an unforgiving place to the fool hearty and arrogant.

Northern Saskatchewan truly is a wild place. Of the 3 close proximities I have had with death , 2 of them were in northern Saskatchewan. I will say I didn't meet many fool hearty or arrogant people in the many years I worked up there. I meet a few more now in recent years as the area has opened up a lot to "sportsmen".

WRW , Gary

I do not know the banks. Congrats to them. They are the envy of a lot of people from California and the like. . Most would not have the onions to do what they did.

I have watched the show enough to see that it is very "staged" with a script of sorts to maintain or create a storyline. That is entertainment to some. The tree felling at the spike cabin was a terrible example of this. The moving of the wood stove for another. Add a couple bedroom scenes and you have a prime time soap.

On the documentary side , I am sure they are taking the day to day and scripting for entertainment . We all saw this on Dropped Alaska and others on the Outdoor Channel.

How Discovery puts it together is their perogative to keep an audience watching. The Barks have had their trapping cabin for many years and have lived off the grid for a long time. They truly live off the grid and they home schooled their boys. They had a deer farm but had a CWD positive and had to put down all their deer. They are Christians and very spiritual.

To all our deer farmer friends, thanks for all the support. Clearly we have had a very busy winter as you can see. Due to confidentiality paperwork we were unable to announce this or let our subscribers know much until it aired. It is nice to be able to share at least a portion of our life with our friends like this as most of you have read and heard about our life first hand. Yes, we really do live in the bush, on a trapline for the majority of the year. We love this life. Our goal was, from our part to help work toward a family show, something entertaining, something real to our life and something of value with some meaning-basically something new and refreshing on TV. *


*


We did not look for this or plan on this. Scott Gurney, the producer of Duck Dynasty found us through our business websites (Deer Tracking/Bear Essential). Originally we said "no" we were not interested in doing a show, because we REALLY do love the quiet, peacefulness of this life. But then, as a family we prayed about direction b/c it was clear that this was pretty bizarre in how it happened. Perhaps the Lord had more of a purpose than we could imagine, so we decided to walk it out in faith all the while asking the Lord to close the door if it was not His will and plan...It just kept growing bigger and bigger! You can read more about it in an upcoming Deer Tracking *


*


So here we are now having finished filming for a time... and via a solar powered satelite system, we are presently working on the next Deer Tracking Magazine, baiting bears and are presently stranded with an inoperable argo, a long 2 days, brutal walk from the nearest neighbour in the farmland. We just managed to get word out to someone who will be bringing up argo parts with another argo by the weekend....Yep, funny how a week of being stranded up here can still seem like such a blessing... Hope the show is somehow a blessing to you and your families.


*


It shows on the Discovery Channel every Tuesday and a few other days too...You can find out more about it at*https://www.facebook.com/SonsOfWinter*or for a schedule*http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/sons-of-winter/schedule/

Randy, Tara and boys, it is an awesome show and a great way for us all to see the beauty that you speak of from the place you all call home. For the majority of us we get into the woods to track deer and wildlife a few days out of the year however for you and the boys it is a lifestyle and one bathed in Gods glory, it would have to be given the dangers you face on a daily basis. I enjoyed watching so far and I hope it continues for you all and for us because I believe we all get complacent in our lives and forget just what God had created for us. I am glad to call your family my friends and more importantly, my brothers and sister in Christ.
