In one particular episode, Dodge was portrayed as if he was starving in the woods and desperately needed to find something to eat. Low and behold Mick runs across a nice big plop of Elk crap. Mick acting like he just found a nice big juicy steak, (although a little mushy) tries convincing the camera crew (and the viewers) it might be filled with fresh larvae eggs or maybe even a few maggots.

“Yoish! No I was not going to eat elk sh*t. I was trying to get the camera crew to eat it”.
