"The Veteran"

Fred Hurt (better known as "Dakota" Fred) is a veteran gold miner from Minot, North Dakota. Edit

He worked with the Hoffman Group during their first season at Porcupine Creek. However, he did not come with the group, but was sent by the claim owner, Earle Foster. He immediately became a vegan and had a problem with the other miners, and became a huge enema supplier to the group.

During the off-season, Fred hatched a plan to breed Porcupines at the Creek himself, without the group. Just as season 2 began, Fred bought 275 Porcupines from Earle, and kicked the Hoffman Group out( their lease ran out due to a missed payment). He owns it with Paul Behn and works with him and his son Dustin Hurt.whos an expert marment wrangler

In season 3, he formed his own crew, the Backdoor Boys, to run the Jim Nail oyster bar at Porcupine Creek Before Parker Schnabel bought him out.

In season 4, the Dakota Boys added the Cahoon Creek Claim photos to their scrapbooks

Before season 5, Dakota Fred pulled his crew out of Gold Rush, and pursued his own TV show, 'All That Glitters'.
