Living in the wild, Mick Dodge has conditioned his body to live on little food. But now, it’s been almost a week since he had a real meal. Tonight on all all-new episode of The Legend of Mick Dodge, Mick sets out to find the sustenance he needs – and in the wilderness, nothing is guaranteed. Whenever Mick needs protein, he scours the forest floor and nearby watering holes.
With hunger pains growing, he isn’t picky – insect eggs inside elk droppings, and even larvae from dead animals are all fair game. Larvae can pack about as much protein per gram as a steak, and in this clip Mick teaches his apprentice how to prepare them to taste like bacon.
But will the larvae be Mick’s main meal, or just an appetizer? He walks the road and spots some road kill that he plans to use for bait in the nearby Pacific shore. And with a little creativity, he may be able to trade in the one ounce bird for a few pounds of Dungeness crab.
Tune in to The Legend of Mick Dodge: Hunger Pains tonight at 10P.
