1. Marty's plane stalls...

...but he manages to restart it midair, just a couple of seconds from death!

2. Marty's snow machine strands him... again.

Snowshoes, 10 miles, and a whole bunch of frustration.

3. Charlie crashes and injures his shoulder!

HISTORY

Jim comes to his rescue, but Charlie nearly jeopardizes his entire trapping season.

4. A giant flippin' grizzly bear tries to steal Tom's pigeons.

HISTORY

Electric fence be darned!

5. Tom fends off a WILDFIRE.

By chopping down trees!

6. Eustace and Preston chase off a thievin', no-good poacher!

Fight gunfire with gunfire, as they say.

7. Marty tracks and kills a moose at. the. last. minute.

And nary a poacher in sight.

8. Rich's dogs bark off into a cougar cave.

Maul-free: the way to be.

9. Rich finally reunites with his lost dog, Turbo.

HISTORY

And all it took was sleeping fireside in wolf country and trekking 10 miles.

10. Rich chases a mountain lion up a tree.

To try to scare it out of the tree and off of his land, of course.
