As long as he's not using that gun to shoot any wolves I am all for it.
Good Luck to him and his dog. Complete isolation is the real challange.

That is quite a brave thing to try. No medical sevices if anything were to happen to you or any other sort of safety net. Wish the story had a lot more details about whether anyone will be checking in on him from time to time or not to make sure he is OK. Will he be alone or will he have anyone with him for company? The story could have had a lot more information. I admire his courage.
