Had to stop watching that show a yr or so ago, it was so NOT entertaining, with knuckleheads not prepared. Its like folks never train/learn how to survive with minimal gear.

Whut? I don't understand....it clearly says at the start of each segment that these people are "trained survival experts"! I thought they were all the cream of the crop. A mere mortal such as me would have to tap out the first day like that guy did a year or two ago because he didn't want to be eaten by a bear. I think the chips fall where the producers say they fall. Time will tell.

Don, I think that guy is a nut too. Last night, one of my boys said the same thing as you.

Britt bugged me last night, he had moose walk right next to camp at night sees the tracks and doesn't go after them. Sure it's a lot of meat/work but the food and hide are worth the risk.

Didn't think that guy who's always cryimg would make it this far.

I will applaud the first time anybody on the Alone series actually kills something of substance instead of just a chipmunk or a grouse. Hard to believe that all these survival experts in 4 years have never killed anything over a few lbs.

Watching ole Tom Oar on mountain men. I likeTom, but he embarrassed himself gutting a buffalo. Stabbed right in like a green horn, stomach opened up every where all over the place.

A buddy snagged his arm with a rusty limbline hook while boating on the river. He pushed the hook through the skin and tissue on the top of his forearm and had the point on the verge of breaking the skin. He said he could not push it out with all his might, no matter what he did. He decided to cut the skin where the point was, but couldn't manage it with one hand while pushing on the hook. The guy with him refused to and told him to go to the hospital. He finally convinced him, the guy cut the skin, the point popped through, rusty hook was cut with rusty pliers, and he went to work the next day with a bandage and a witness who said "that's the toughest son of a gun I ever saw".

I snagged the skin between my thumb and finger with a no. 18 treble hook. Two hooks past the barbs. Very superficial, no tendons involved, shallow because those hooks are TINY. Try as I might, I could not get the points through the skin. And with out cutting it out, I couldn't get it out. I put tension on it to slowly pull it out, since I figured how strong can those little wires be? The skin on my hand was stretched until it looked like a glove being pulled off. No go. Last ditch, I held the skin down with needle nose pliers and jerked it free. Out came the hook with enough meat to catch a bluegill.

I feel for the lady. Mine did not fester for a day and become infected, nor involve a tendon, and hers was a bigger, deeper hook. Tap time--go to the surgeon.

I saw that Dave guy crying in every show. He should go home and stop crying.

I wondered, was Britt the guy who tapped out in about the first episode the last time he was on the show because he was afraid of bears? (Not sure if I have that right so feel free to straighten me out.) I am getting a kick out of him doing so well fishing on this one. It's funny how you can have one person eating well and preserving food and another one starving and crying all the time.

I wonder if access to water or fishing is a luck of the draw thing in the show? It's interesting.

I am always glued to the TV to see what people put together for shelter. I really like to compare the building, constructing, innovating aspect of the whole thing.

I have to wonder if they are told to stay put to where they are dropped off. Why else would they all stay in that lower country instead of moving along the river until they have a hill next to it to make a dug-out into?

I will admit that I have applied for this program every single year. The first year I had contracts signed and thought it was a done deal, I just didn't make the final cut for their "boot camp". Still trying so I can show what an old fart, one time Alaskan trapper, that has spent 7 months in isolation, can do. I wonder if it is the been there, done that, that has kept me off the show.

If Chuck would have made it on there it would have guaranteed a much larger viewing audience for their program. How many of us here on Trapperman would have missed an episode with one of our own out there? AND....the real deal!

Newhouse that would be awesome.

Down to 3 Sam is still in but can't poop. Next week there will be a winner. I hope it's Britt

With snow hitting the ground the show will end quickly. Too bad Britt lost the fish and his lure. I thought earlier when he was slaying the fish he would have had more of a stock pile built up for when times got lean. Britt does have a nice supply of firewood in his hut. None of the huts look like they have great roofs for preventing heat loss. Randy had built great cabin but just couldn't keep his head in it.

The last guy that tapped out went for a climb up that high ridge with just a stick to look for food, really except for plants what can you beat with that stick to get food, a Mongolian sloth or tortious maybe? whistle

Seen 1 shelter that was worth anything the rest looked like a firewood nightmare and nobody had a large woodpile that I could see.

Felt bad when Britt lost his lure too.
Law Dog, I think the guy that went home last night had the best shelter. A little cabin. Sams shelter won't handle 1 good snow storm. Britt had a good stock pile of firewood.

The guy last week had the log cabin and the nice fireplace is the one I was thinking about, funny how Britt was talking about how cold it was but the flies were still buzzing around his shelter?
