Les Stroud is a lone survivor in the series Survivorman that airs on Discovery Channel in the United States and on OLN in Canada. Though his career has been successful and many claim to have survived in a dire situation based on his advice, Stroud wasn’t a natural-born survivor. He learned from other experts and through his own mistakes. Here, Stroud tells us his “best wilderness story ever” where he did everything wrong at the onset of his career and was stalked by a rutting bull moose for hours.
