Les Stroud is entertaining, but he is a moron! I saw that episode and it took him several attempts before he managed to get a fire going. In essence, he wasted 3 or 4 rounds of ammo when he only had 5 or 6 total! I also saw the episode where he almost burned to death in his sleep because he built his campfire INSIDE his tiny dry-wood shelter ...
He DOES play a mean harmonica though...
