Watch Dual Survival

Dual Survival is an American show on Discovery Channel about two survivalist experts with different skillsets and viewpoints being put into situations where they must both survive usually at least one night in some form of wilderness and eventually find their way to be civilization.

Cody Lundin, a naturalist who never wears shoes and always prefers to find and use primitive means such as making tools and weapons from sticks and stones to resolve problems while surviving in the wilderness, co-stars with Dave Canterbury, a former Military Police Sergeant trained in survival techniques who also runs a survivalist school in Ohio with knowledge of things like how to cauterize a wound using gunpowder and fire, and the two often find themselves in conflict over which action to take next to best ensure their survival. In one situation, Cody wanted to use a primitive burning technique to build a boat to navigate the marsh the two were stranded in, but Dave argued that chopping down the tree and performing the technique could very well use up all the calories they had in their bodies and that they should focus on finding food and shelter instead.

The two have been put in many different situations and the different outlooks and approaches they suggest have been pit against one another in such scenarios as being shipwrecked in Nova Scotia, having their car break down in the middle of the desert, being stranded in the middle of a Louisiana swap, surviving sub-zero temperatures and climbing down frozen waterfalls, and even how best to survive in the African jungle armed with little more than the clothes on your back and a machete.

The advice given from both survivalists is highly useful and the gear Dave explains you should always have if you're planning a long trip through some wilderness, which often includes a good machete that can be used for a lot of different purposes, could potentially lead to a viewer being better equipped to survive in similar situations. The debate between the two also provides viewers with a chance to see two experts compare and contrast different survival methods.
