it doesn't get below 0F for 2 months after their drop off in late Sept. 100 days for Season 7, ended the day after xmas. It's just not all that cold for most of their 100 days, guys. Notice that you're going to have the 2 inches of snow needed to make an igloo before it gets so cold that you'd even need the hot rocks under your bed trick in the insulated, sealed tarp shelter. So I"m correct in my assertion that you dont need a warming fire. nor a debris hut. Just that, without any additional food, will give you another month of staying power.


If you use that month of time and calories to make netting, the pontoon outrigger raft and big game traps, you'll easily make it to 100 days and if you score a big animal, you can make it 200 days. With the extra time given you, the baited traps are very likely to score a big critter before you run out of fish. Scoring 1200 lbs of fish is not that outlandish a goal, either, given lots of netting 190 days of fishing and twice as many hooks as everyone else has, used in a much more effective way (ie, suspended and baited below a tarp/tape bait-bag. 1200 lbs of fish is 420,000 calories. That's 3000 calories per day for 140 days, plus enough small game for another 10 days. then losing a lb of bodyweight per day for the remaining 50 days. So if you're fat enough and score well enough on the fish, you dont have to take a big animal to get thru 200 days. The last 10 days is in April, so you've got a change of catching a spring bear and all winter, you'll have a shot at catching a musk ox or moose. Those are pretty good odds, if you not only have a dozen baited big game traps, but also have baited tree stands and hunt in the snow.

Let us know when you actually do any of this, starting with your Pontoon raft. I think the technical rescue that follows you setting out on it will be hilarious.

Will anybody rescue old Mel when he is caught in one of his traps or has treble hooks hanging all over or the great sea going pontoon falls apart an sinks his fat lazy ass? Or finds the stiff frozen body parts in the remains of what was an igloo after the bear eats his ass?

I'm willing to bet the bears wouldn't eat him, they do have standards - even if they are omnivores.
