I don't know how many here watch Dual Survival on TV. The show highlights two very divergent survival methods. Cody Lundin specializes in gathering edible plants and building fires and shelter. Dave Canterbury is the meat eater who likes to hunt, set traps, and eat meat. Paleo eaters might be especially amused by many of his quotes like when, after eating some of Cody's plant food, he says things like "You know what, I just realized I'm not a cow. I need meat!" But it is usually Cody's firemaking skills that allow them to cook that meat.
In the show, the two men are dumped into various survival situations with minimal supplies. They often end up bickering a bit about which tactics to take, reflecting their different survival methods. In the end, I think they make a great pair, Cody able to find food quickly in most situations, but it is plant food and often not as filling or as satisfying. Dave takes more risks but when he brings home meat, it is often plentiful and solves their food needs for a longer time period. IMO, the two of them nicely hightlight the advantages and disadvantages of their two divergent survival styles. What other lessons do people think this show demonstrates and how accurate do you think this show is as far as real wilderness survival?
