Norman Winther: The Last Trapper


Norman Winther is a longtime trapper in a remote area of the Yukon. His adventurous life was the subject of the film, The Last Trapper which features Norman who plays himself. My Yukon Life host Jennifer Hawks sits down with Norman to discuss the film and find out more about the man and his life on the trapline.

This show was originally broadcast on June 13, 2011 as a live podcast.

Join Us for the Premiere of My Yukon Life on YouTube!


I hope you’ll join me tomorrow evening at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific on My Yukon Life’s YouTube channel for the premiere episode. There will be a live chatroom during the show that you can join in if you wish.

My special guest is Norman Winther who stars as himself in The Last Trapper, a docu-drama about the bond between a man and his sled dogs and living off the land. My interview with him was originally broadcast as a podcast in 2011, but it remains just as relevant today. And, I’ve added video footage and photos for the rebroadcast.

Another reason to not miss the show is that one of the musical guests is Kim Beggs who happens to be my very favorite Yukon musician. Here’s Kim’s website– be sure to check out her music:
