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.

In the swamp, Belinda is too hurt to log so she's brought in a new assistant who almost drowns Shelby's dream of rebuilding his logging empire.

The battle for river supremacy rages on in Florida as the Chapman team fights amongst themselves and the Dreadknots divide to conquer.
The competition is heating up a quarter of the way through the season.

In the Pacific Northwest, Joe tries to muscle his way through his mistakes but his shortcuts land him in hot water with the boss.

Down on the Saint John's River, the Chapman team is pulling ahead, but a log poacher needs to be caught and Jeter is just the guy to do it.
The Rygaard family is back on the mountain and firing on all cylinders, until new yarder team Oakes Logging crashes onto the site, challenging Gabe face-to-face for the title of King of the Mountain. Down in the swamp, Shelby and Mike use redneck ingenuity to pull a huge and rare heart-pine log. In Alaska, the Papac team is down a yarder engineer, leaving them no choice but to make reckless Joe the new operator in order to stay in the race. In Florida, the Dreadknots newest diver Erin is finally getting the hang of river logging, but Kraken's fear of another diver taking his place causes a rift with Captain Clint.
