So first off, when the show started I recall Sue being very adamant about her not going outside after dark unless necessary because of all of the wildlife that roams around after dark and since then, that’s all we see is her out after dark.

This made people doubt if the show is fake and scripted, to which one of the cast member of the show, Chip Hailstone chimed in and explained the situation, he said,

Its Sue’s doing.

Theres no scripts, so if Sue left a carcass near her camp and animals come along, its her doings.

You can tell she has no script because she poses questions and then answers them….seems odd, but she is not alone and a producer/cameraman is near her, talking with her. We usually just go on talking as we do, because our family is there to discuss our doings, but she has the one or two people and they are off camera. Very rarely, but they do, will a camera/producer ask us questions. We usually save that for an OTF where we stand there and describe things, answer questions.

She live further north than us, so her 24 hour dark is a couple months long, (ours is a few weeks) and if they are going to film there then, its either in the dark/twilight, or its in her cabins.

After filming, editors review and condense the film, and concentrate on a ‘story’ about whats gone on.

She’s come a long way in the last 12 years with dealing with the animals.

Also…..She also gets 24 hour day light in the Summer, much like us, now.

However, some of the fans clarified it by mentioning her location being far away from the US where there is 24-hour darkness and the producers, and cameraman are near her which makes her safe around.
