A humorous and relatable story of an intelligent man dealing with the frustration of being a "buckless Uper" at deer camp. He deals with his competitive brother, his challenging father and two other comical guys. Men will easily relate to the angst. Women will have fun as long as they're willing to avoid trying to find a deep plot line the first time they watch.
If you are a real outdoors person, you will like it.
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.
