Dakota Fred Hurt was born in Minot, North Dakota and began his professional career in the late 60s, working as a commercial diver in the Gulf of Mexico, where he learned how to conduct underwater salvage, demolition, and mining expeditions. After running his own construction business for 25 years, he decided to shift his focus to mining, but was initially unsuccessful.

He is one of the subjects of the Discovery Channel reality series, "Gold Rush Alaska", which follows a group of miners as they attempt to earn a living mining for gold in Alaska and the Klondike. The show is currently in its third season. Dakota Fred Hurt has been married for more than 44 years to three different women consecutively.
