This is the first, and most widely seen, of the Canadian IMAX films - a true classic that showed at Ontario Place for years. I saw it there in 1983, and years later discovered that my new wife's Father appeared in the movie (he was the game warden who hangs off the helicopter to tag a moose swimming across a lake). He has a frame of the 70mm film as a memento, but I've never found a DVD or VHS release from IMAX, even though all their newer films are available for purchase. Perhaps they feel that this one is too dated, or not exciting enough, but for those who have seen it, no doubt it is one they remember well. Also, I understand that on the 30th Anniversary of the Ontario Place IMAX (in 2001) they had a re-touched print of the film showing, and I would have thought that that might have stirred interest in a home video release. If anyone has other information on this, please add a comment here.
