In Alaska, much of your food comes from the surrounding wilderness. The coveted moose is the steer of the bush. Butchering one of these well meated beasts allows survival for the whole family in the cold Alaskan winters.

Ask yourself what students are better prepared for the world around them? Is it these students that know at an early age how to butcher large game in an adult like manner? Or is it the teenagers in the lower 48 states chasing imaginary Pokemon beasts around while wearing their pajamas? You be the judge.
