As logging's toughest season begins, the Ax Men meet face-to-face to carve out this year's stakes. Pihl and J.M. Browning Logging return, but they'll face stiff competition from three new crews. Rygaard Logging, R&R Conner Aviation and S&S Underwater Logging take the job to new extremes--wrestling timber from Mother Nature's clutches by land, sea and even helicopter. The men of the mountain will battle each other and attempt to conquer the most forbidding land in America. Not all will survive, but those who do will earn the title... Ax Men.
