    Amazon Prime has a documentary type movie on right now called Trapper Jake. Free for being a member. Like the description says, if you like Happy People, you'll like this.

    It follows around an old timer and shows a lot of trapping type stuff, including dispatching the caught animal.
    I don't recall them saying how old he was at the time they filmed him and it doesn't have a lot of sustenance living type of content, but it's an enjoyable story. Probably more so if you're a trapper.

    Thanks for the info. I'll have to watch it because I really liked Happy People - I've watched the movie cut a few times and the TV cut once. And I'm not a trapper.

    Great movie, sad that he is basically the last of his generation. Trapping is not what it once was, because the younger generation is LOST in technology.
