Albert Soady: A little what?
Rueben Soady: On the sap, it's a little heavy on the sap.
Albert Soady: The saps what makes it.
Rueben Soady: Yeah, well that may be, but if I didn't know better I'd say I just drunk from a bottle of maple syrup.

If you are a real outdoors person, you will like it.
22 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny parody of the realities of life amongst the real yoopers, not the phony yoopers who live near academia at the colleges in The Soo, Marquette and Houghton. It started as a very successful play and has been carefully translated to film. It is about the myths and legends surrounding deer hunting camps and hunting. If you have ever spent time in a deer camp, you will recognize all the truths they joke about (drinking, cardplaying, farting, sacred clothing and food, etc. etc.). A bearwalker is an Indian legend about a spirit which has came back or been called back on a mission -- they often take the form of a bear, hence the name. See it.
