Just early on, if Biko can get some food built up, he is currently my pick. Anything can happen though.

I was actually wondering this myself. If it was mentioned that they can’t in the show, I missed it. The way all the contestants act during any encounter so far, it seems like killing bears is not allowed. I could be wrong though.

He was smart to store up some reserves.

The guy complaining about high metabolism won’t be around long imo.

Why wouldn’t you put gill nets out right away and let them be working for you while you expend calories building cabins?
Gill nets and snares were such cash crops for previous seasons it seems like a do right away thing to me.

I was thinking the same, why have the gill nets not come out yet or snares.

Maybe just not showing us the ones that are doing that because its the same ole thing and they might consider it boring lol who knows.

They have to follow Canadian archery & trapping guidelines. Last season this guy could of killed like 4 foxes but couldnt due to trapping regulation. He talked about how mad it made him becasue he was basically starving at that point.

This season is in BC some area called chilko Lake.

Sometimes I think some of these folks come in thinking “I’ve got this”. Like mentioned earlier the guy building the mac mansion or the canoe. Your getting bombarded by your needs immediately. Seems like I’d be grinding it trying to catch some fish before it gets cold. As always, a great show.

A couple of the contestants in their pack breakdown brought supplies to make gillnets, and I swore that Clay actually brought one, but at least has intentions of making one. and that bushcraft rod he built is LEGIT!

What drives me nuts is when they catch a fish with a handline or rod and then stop fishing. Do they really think that fishing conditions are consistent and that they can go back there anytime? Why not keep fishing and try to load up?

Might be a PItA to preserve while still having to finish a shelter and all that. I agree though, when the fishing's good pile it up. It would stink to have a huge stash raided by a bear or something though.

I reckon. But they all come in there knowing they're going to be fishing and knowing how to preserve (smoke) fish before it gets too cold.

Easy for me to say though!

Not sure about gill nets but that lake is artificial only and barbless hooks. My money is on Clay but he will need to work harder to keep himself fed. He spent four months trying to gain weight for this thing and only gained 20-25 lbs over regular weight. Remember, season 7 had some survivors that were in a frame shelters. They were colder than Rollin but one was still there up until the last 10 days. And she was pulled off for frostbite. But for that, I think they both would have made it. Having said that, any shelter that could abut a rock wall would be a plus.

My money is on Clay. He literally had 10 pounds of food the first day. They didn't really give him much footage in the last episode. I think early on in the series they show more footage of people that are going out. I do think kayak man though will soon be stashing some serious fish. I also think he probably has a really stout shelter that they are not showing much of. Best shelter though is probably the lady from UK. It wont be flooded when it starts snowing and she will be well insulated. I just don't think she will have enough food.

I think Kayak guy may also begin putting fish in the boat. Now that he has outriggers on his yak, it is much more stable and appears to be viable for getting out where the fish are. If he can get a lot of fish and smoke them, he will have a long term solution to food supply. I saw last night that they can`t kill squirrels either. So far no one appears to be getting much game (rabbits/hares, grouse, deer). I have to rember that the producers have thousands of hours of footage, but they edit the footage to create a sense of anticipation and excitement. They can edit the storylines and footage to make you think there is going to be one outcome and then hit you out of left field with an alternative ending, like what happened last night. Never thought that contestant would voluntarily tap out so early. Still a great show.

I told my wife that the boat build was a huge waste of energy, time and calories after it’s maiden voyage. Then, I was shocked at how stable the outriggers made it. 😳 Shows what I know.

That being said, I still like Biko. That ole boy did some pre work….he came prepared and packed in some extra internal groceries 😂

Clay was on Newberg's podcast the other day. It was recorded after the first show aired this season. No secrets revealed, but I found it interesting.

Kinda saw that coming. That dude's whole episode was doing stupid meaningless things, haven't seen him even attempt to get something to eat for like 2 episodes now? Absolute waste of a shelter, man that was a nice one, loved the door.

Why is everybody making those silly fish baskets? Do they have some sort of "local expert" do a seminar or something as a group before they get started? No way those baskets are gonna catch anything in that environment.

Clays really the only one I feel that can absolutely take multiple big game with his bow if the chance arises. The others it would be just pure luck. Anybody building a useless fish trap on a lake goes on my short list. Stream yes lake no !

The lady that built the earth shelter is straight up smart. She could be a real competitor with Clay! Some of those other shelters aren’t going to cut it at all!

I'm assuming he killed that deer at the end of the last episode, problem is there's not a lot of fat on deer so people can still be hurting with plenty of jerky to chew on. Agree with you he's actually got hunting skills and it's refreshing to see.

She's good, but she came in really skinny and doesn't look to be eating enough to keep going.

I believe they do. I know “Naked and afraid” has a survival expert teach the fish basket making before they are dropped off.


Those baskets are as worthless as tits on a bull

One thing we’ve observed in the different seasons of watching this show.... when the contestants start talking about their family and home, they’re done.

I’m betting on Clay or Nate

Where are the snares, gill net's, as mentioned? They seem to be fixated on shelters which is fine, but you have to eat to survive.
berries and bugs isn't going to cut it!
I don't see this group going far, and probably not going as long as the last several seasons.

Clay has killed a ton of critters with his self bows. Hunts the entire Idaho archery season if that’s what it takes to put an elk in the freezer. Aron Snyder respectfully refers to him as “trad Jesus”. The man can hunt! The only thing that will stop him will be missing his wife and boys.

Not a single gill net deployed after a couple weeks, ***? I have to wonder if the producers have placed some artificial restrictions on the contestants or something.

My money says she won't be able to keep the water out of it. Any rain or melting snow will make it a muddy mess wouldn't you think?

berries and bugs isn't going to cut it!
I don't see this group going far, and probably not going as long as the last several seasons.
Agree...I was thinking the same thing. This won't take long. Not enough food. I reckon there's too many bears for any rabbits, squirrels, or forest chickens.

Gill nets may be illegal in that area. They are illegal in Texas.

Someone earlier clarified that they're legal and allowed on this season.

Lol so true. Such a beating hearing them justify it and renege on what they were saying Day 1.

Nothing says fast forward like a grown man with glistening eyes trying to say that he proved everything he needed to prove and his family is more important than half a million dollars. So why the hell did you go on the show? I'm pretty sure your wife wasn't begging you to go on national TV and embarrass yourself because you got a little sand in your vajayjay

Good point in the water/snow funneling inside…will be watching for that

As mentioned, where’s the snares & gill nets? Nobody will last much longer than a few weeks at most unless they down a deer or something of significance.

Definitely a different focus this season on the show, the producers have the participates focusing on air time with creativity ideas.
Let’s see what happens Thursday
