    Who is watching ALONE?

    http://www.history.com/shows/alone/episodes

    Who is watching the new survival show ALONE on History channel?

    They drop 10 guys onto Vancouver Island alone. They are isolated from one another and trying to survive in cold, wet Canadian pine forest.

    Basically last guy that walks out of the woods wins.

    They film everything themselves, a la Survivor Man. It could be interesting.

    If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene.

    First guy taps out after one night. He's freaked out over bears, just because 2 black bears came by and sniffed around his tent in the night.

    First guy let his mind get the best of him. He said that he was scared to go in the woods because of all the predators. He was done before he got there.

    It looks like they were not allowed to bring any type of firearms in as part of their survival kits. One guy remarked about how it was the first time he didn't have a gun on him in years.

    I don't think I'd want to be up in bear / wolf / cougar country without a .44 mag revolver at the very least. Rifle would be better.

    Dude was cowering in his tent with his little hatchet. I can't say I blame him.

    Me and the Mrs just got back from the Smoky mountains, where we did a pretty decent back country hike IE, nobody else on the trail but us for quite a way.....it is a little unnerving to see fresh bear tracks on the trail, never saw the bear, but still unnerving. I carried my 17+1 SR9, as usual, but I also decided at the last minute to through my Alaskan 44 mag in the top of my pack, just in case. Shooting a bear is not a can of worms I'd want to open in a national park, but I wouldn't go into the back country without some means of protection. I'm always more concerned with having to deal with 2 legged predators than 4, but I always like to have what I might need.
