I watch it if I'm bored, ha. I get a kick how everything is "dangerus", i.e. the dog can't disappear for a minute w/o "maybe the bear got it", or theres a grizzly outside, so "let's open the door and shine a lantern, sic the dog on him", ha. Saw the visit with the brother, "pushed the lion offf the ranch" with 3 wild mustangs, and did you see those old ragged, wore out saddles and tack? ha
I still don't know how Eustice 'can't make it through the winter w/o his Kale crop". Or why they have 2x6"s on the place, but he has to use quarter rails to build a deer blind? ha. Best of all of "how dangerous it was to pull that Toyota up the "frozen hill" with two big horses...they ought to see the ragged contraptions those South African blacks hook up and pull with a donkey, ha. And that barn held up "with chunks"! ha. He can get full length logs for a deer stand, but not for the barn? Sweet.
And ol Marty, I like him the best, you got to be half crazy to fly a small plane, let alone in Alaska, and he seems the most resourceful of them all. Just living in that kind of cold is a challenge, but no one really expected him to walk back 10 miles, sure if he was alone. And not even a .22 pistol for the trapline? Maybe he had it on under his coat? It's just a TV show, and better than most of the other "Hunting shows" where the Metallica Wannabes are playing that awful garage band crap music...there, I said it, ha. What a hoot. Where's Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom when you need it or Marty Stouffer...ha.
I like just seeing the different country each is in, that's the best thing about the show for me, but hey, everybody is scratching for a dollar nowadays...I don't know, but they tell me that "even Kim Karadashian's show" is all a fake...lol.
