DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, April 2014) KODIAK - Kodiak Island is remote. For three multi-generational families risking it all to make a living in this dangerous environment, each day is a roll of the dice. Home to some of the best fishing and deadliest hunting on the planet, Kodiak Island is a land of natural treasures and populated by as many as 3,500 Kodiak bears - one for every square mile of land - each weighing in at over 1,500 pounds. Too many bears ultimately means starvation for the species, so carefully regulated hunting is the only solution. And there is also fierce weather to contend with. Kodiak Island averages 70 inches of both snow and rain per year - and fog is common. Those who reside here truly live on the edge. For the bush pilots, master guides, expert hunters, survival experts and adrenaline junkies who call Kodiak Island home, each and every day brings new challenges.
