This video is of a 1926 bowhunting adventure with Art Young in Alaska. This is history in the making at the beginning of modern archery.

In 1922 and 1923 Art Young traveled to Alaska accompanied by cameraman Jack Robertson. Neither carried a firearm, relying solely upon Young’s osage longbow for protection. Young took mountain sheep, mountain goat, moose and an Alaskan brown bear on Kodiak Island.

They are at the breaking up of the thick ice on the Yukon River, hordes of salmon fighting to go upstream during spawning season and come across such wildlife as Kodiak bears, mountain sheep and Arctic deer.
