Just wanted to make a plug for the History Channel show "Alone". The premise is they drop 10 people off in separate, remote locations, and the last person standing wins $500K. They are provided a tarp and get to bring 10 personal items, but any weapons need to be fairly primitive, like a long bow - not modern compound bow, crossbow or firearms. Season 6 is currently on Netflix, Seasons 1 & 2 are on Prime Video, and if you have History On Demand you can watch all the seasons I believe. In season 2 there was a competitor from Rush City, MN. For my money it's the best show on TV and way more "real" than any reality show I've ever seen. I think a lot of people here would really like - and probably could envision themselves competing.
Depending on the experience that you want, there are a lot of opportunities in the Waubay/Bitter region. There are a handful of businesses w/ sleeper houses but like anywhere else - you may or may not be on fish. Using guides and fishing out of a SnoBear is starting to get to be the new trend and seems to lead to more daytime activity. Big stone will give you an active day bite for perch and bluegills, but the sizes have seemed to take a bit of the dive over the years (but there are lots of upcoming year classes on the way). Waubay and Bitter give you a little better chance and catching multiple species.
Yeah I am afraid with the pandemic and lots of new people resorting to outdoor activities. Are we going to see that transition to hard water also? I think its great to see people enjoying the outdoors. I just hope it doesn't turn into a zoo at every lake like it has this summer on the lakes and rivers that I have been fishing. The thundering herds could be interesting this year.
