Next Episode of Ax Men is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Season eight of Ax Men comes roaring back as the loggers take on America’s deadliest job to earn their cut of the timber. Hoping to reclaim the title “King of the Mountain,” Rygaard Logging pushes further into Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, to an extreme site that hasn’t been logged in over a century. Meanwhile, reigning champion Papac Alaska won’t go down without a fight—but this season the competition is fiercer than ever, with two new crews joining the ranks.
Triack Logging (British Columbia) is considered the black sheep of the logging industry for taking on jobs that others won’t even consider. Zitterkopf (Wyoming) is a family-run outfit led by David Zitterkopf aka the “Madman of the Mountain.” They choose sites miles from civilization where they camp and live in the wilderness. They’re not just loggers—they’re mountain men and survivalists.
From the mountains of the Pacific Northwest to the waters of the Deep South, the rough-and-ready river logging crews are back at it, chasing their slice of the timber fortune. Led by fan favorite, Shelby Stanga, the “Swampman,” a logging legend who answers to no one and lives by his own rules. In Florida, the feisty Dreadknots face off against Chapman Logging and the stakes have never been higher. A record breaking order has the two teams scrambling to find the most wood.
