Survivorman and Son

Les Stroud giving son Logan some tips before they begin filming Survivroman and Son


The first episode of Survivorman and Son aired in the US this week to great reviews. It was a long time coming and did not disappoint.

Les’s Facebook fans had a lot of good things to say about the show including:


“Thank you. So enjoyed this show. Glad you are having your son involved. I think he did very well. And you have a good relationship. Cherish the time you have together. Children grow up way to fast. I can hardly wait for the next show.”


“Was really good, looks like it will develop into another great series. Best of luck Les and Logan (and the whole family)”


The next episode which takes place in Wabakimi, Ontario is scheduled to air on Discovery in the US on Wednesday, April 2nd at 10PM EST.

    Great to see Les back! Logan brought a fresh perspective I can appreciate as a dad. I especially enjoyed seeing the guys catching fish, but Les eating crow. Way to go Logan!

    I agree that the Survivorman and Son is one of your best shows. But then, being a Dad is our most important reason for being. I teach Wilderness Survival Merit Badge for my Boy Scout Troop and use you and Myke Hawk as good examples. I especially like when you evaluate equipment. There is alot of junk sold these days. Quality counts when somebodys’ life depends on it.

    One thing about the little wire saws, they are supposed to be stretched across a bow so that they are straight and used with little pressure. The flexing fatigues the steel to failure. They aren’t very good, but with the correct technique you can get more out of them.

    I teach my Scouts to have various kits to assist survival. One around the neck, a bigger one in a pocket, an even bigger one on the belt, and the biggest in a coffee can in their day pack. We put these kits together on a very low budget. There is redundancy by having several kits. One thing I would like to find would be a POPIELS POCKET FISHERMAN for in the pack, it would be the ultimate survival fishing kit. I try to make the learning as much fun as possible. It may one day save one of their lives. Your show may do that too. Good Luck, Rick

    Hi Syrvivorman. I apreciete a lot you shows and it is a shame the I can not watch your shows in Dk. It will be great if you could offer easy access to you shows for all fans @ the world. I believe that you are on a level when you can be less comercial and give us all access to you shows after the premiere. An mo my tv provider dose not want to add the sows. You wood be the best if you will give us the fans your shows. Thanks

    My wife and I think Logan should adopt the moniker, Apocalypse Boy and the new show should be renamed accordingly…Survivorman and ApocalypseBoy: The Legacy of Survival.

    Les, you should let your son have it his way. Try his ideas. Watch how much more he will respect and love you. Teenagers needs to feel like they have ideas in any situation. Especially around grownups.

    A note for Les. I have been a huge fan of Survivorman since the first episode and I am a huge fan of survivorman an Son as well. I think that Les is doing a really great job of carefully exposing his son to learning the skills needed to survive in situations where a person needs to use them. To those that say Les is soft peddaling, that’s nonsense. He is doing it the most sensible way.
    Please keep doing what you are doing and I will keep watching.
    Just for the sake of demographics, I am a 60 year old Vietnam vet with a good deal of survival training.
    By the way, I love his harmonica playing.

    Watched again last night, Wabakimi, and the show was great. We fish yearly in Quebec on Lake Dumoine with our sons and where we are could be just like what you went through. I will steal plenty of your ideas and hope to never use them. We have greatly enjoyed your show over the years and are so glad you are back on in the States.

    Big fan. I was nerdy about “survivor” stuff long before the show. Didn’t know there were others out there. :] (at least not end of the world crazies) Love the new format with Logan. A big family event to gather and watch at our house with each new show. Thank you! Les does it best! Cheers from Madison WI

    I’ve also been a big fan for a long time of Mr. Survivorman, Les Stroud. Love how real the son/father relationship is. I’m sure Logan realizes what a gem of a father he has. I’m fortunate myself, fortunate each time Les decides to do even one more show. I cherish each and every one. I just hope Discovery realizes what a rare earth element they have. Survive!

    I thought Survivorman and Son was awesome. Nice work guys and you make a great team. Your interaction reminds me of my Dad and I. Keep up the great work!

    hanks for the great information, didn’t know much about this adrenal fatigue. I remember years ago no one knew much about it and Doctors dismissed it.

  • Kevin on June 16, 2014

    Glad your back to do more of what your great at. Survivorman has always been great. Many of us tried telling you when you went to live with the natives on Beyond Survival. Glad your back to making good shows.
