Anyone else see this after deadliest catch? I knew the black guy was going to leave, but was very surprised when the guy with the beard left.

I think he was just plain bored. Sounded like he was out there to challenge himself and wound up having play down to the lowest common denominator, or that was the way I seen it portrayed on the show.

Overall I think it is a good show. Kinda shows just how pampered most of are now a days.

I liked that show last year also a lot. They kinda changed it up this year compared to how they did it last year. Kinda bummed me out to see all the outdoorsy people leave already. But if you are going to be on that show to push yourself and see what you got, and the whole team slows you down, I can see why he left. With who they have left I am sure they have a long and tough road ahead. Though they did get those last two "hogs" all by their selves!

I like last years show better. Agreed - "cit-idots" is right. I must admit that the blondie is really cute. I only saw the first episode.

I was miffed as why the fishing guide would go hunting. You'd think he'd would commit to fishing as they dudes who tossed in a net held by a rocks had no clue. I was laughing when they decided to toss rocks at birds. Good luck with that.

I suppose it would be boring if they knew what they were doing.

"You guys are idiots, I'm out"... That is the way I saw it. I respect the decision, I probably would have bailed too. If you have to do it as a team, you are only as good as the worst of the players. When you know what you are doing you are either doing all the work, or holding back to let someone else give it a try. The guy stuck with it long enough to see what was going on and he split.

It wouldn't make for good TV to have a show full of experience outdoor folks.

I think he was full of it man, did you see him fishing with that net thing it didn't look like he knew what he was doing. I think he was all talk man!

Yes I know this is a old thread to respond too, but I am procrastinating on doing an online test.

Dan Rac the policeman tapped out on the last show. I think he just was so disappointed in the new shelter, he wanted to go. But I also think that the last few remaining might just make it.

The first one to drop was the older gal from Wis. that was a "hunter". She had hunted before but like the "fishing guide", didn't really seem to have much game.

Though they were both smart enough to see the ordeal being much tougher than it needs to be.

I've been wondering where all the caribou are? I don't think they've seen any big game yet, have they? And what would they do if they actually got a caribou? At least they have a gun now that can kill something bigger.

Maybe they should yell while they're hunting just a little more. wink

Yeah last year they hunted some big game. This year I am not too sure any of the ones left would know what to do with something bigger than a "ground squirrel". Though they did get that nice skinning knife.

Nice that they deked em into thinking they actually had another 14 miles up hill in the snow to go. crazy

I bet if it were six miles on level ground they would have kept going instead of waiting out the scheduled train to take them to their folks.

They foreshadowed that one. But what the heck, it was time.

I have to give the finishers props for their determination. They were fishes out of water for that trip but they were figuring it out and had the confidence and will to finish - even with having an easy button.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
