my 2 cents. I grew up listening to my Grandfathers stories about surviving the Great Depression. Salt licks weren't exactly rare. I see on one set of rules (for a different season), that 3lbs of salt is one of the possible items. https://www.history.com/shows/alone/articles/gear-list . If you can build your shelter, avoid injuries, anybody who's harvesting a large animal every two weeks definitely has to have a leg up in the competition. The fat alone would have me seriously weighing my options with a 3lb salt lick. Down vs synthetic. We might be learning something from watching the show. At least one contestant had a -20 F Wiggy's synthetic bag on their first try, and is bringing down this time. I'm hoping the para cord choice by many of the contestants is worth losing 10% of their choices. With wire, and fishing line in so many packs, it looks like a lower priority need. I like Silky saws. I've never broken one. I've broken other brands though. Gill nets. Going to be watching that. Ice fishing. If you didn't bring an ax, that's going to be interesting. Ferro rods: as mentioned before, handles / lanyards? I think supplies of firewood are going to be more important. I'm wondering if anybody is going to create spike camps so that they have options to get wood from a larger area? Fishing in the beginning ........ but then what? I think the most competent trappers in the bunch will end up winning.
