For more than a hundred years, larger-than-life characters, many of whom are members of logging families who go back to the time when the West was being settled, have spent their days among towering trees and powerful machines and their nights in outposts far from the comforts of civilization. As Ax Men enters its third season, it's the dead heat of summer, and the stakes are higher than ever. From mountaintop to river's bottom, six crews will take on one of America's deadliest jobs. In the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest, logging titan J.M. Browning, reigning champion Rygaard, and underdog Pihl Logging vie for the title King of the Mountain. But this year, they're only half the story . . . S&S Aqua Logging heads to Florida in search of new beginnings, Conner Aviation races to find a new ace pilot, and for the first time, Ax Men heads to the swamps of Louisiana to meet a man unlike any other, Shelby Stanga. Across America, it's a battle for survival and for some, this will be the end of the line. Tune in as Ax Men tells their remarkable story, detailing the history of the logging industry and how technology has transformed life for today’s logger, while the struggle of man versus nature stays the same.
