AX MEN

Hit Logging Series Returns for 6th Season Sunday, December 9 at 9PM ET on HISTORY(R)

New York, NY - Few people have what it takes to be called "AX MEN." They are a vanishing breed - except on HISTORY, home of the hit series about some of the most rugged men on the planet. The sixth season of AX MEN premieres on HISTORY on Sunday, December 9 at 9pm ET. Once again, these loggers, throwbacks to another era, put their lives on the line to provide America with the timber it needs. They do whatever it takes to claim the "Green Gold" that's worth millions as they compete in an all-new race to be "King of the Mountain."

Logging has always been one of America's oldest and most dangerous jobs. The work claims the lives of many Americans every year. Mishaps involving falling trees, bone-crushing equipment, razor-sharp cables and human error can kill in an instant. But for the charismatic personalities of AX MEN, it's the life they know, the life they love, the life that makes them feel so alive.

Over the course of season 6, eight crews will embark on the toughest challenges of their careers. They will be tested by each other and by their own headstrong desire to conquer Mother Nature. They come from the remote islands of Alaska, the massive forests of Canada, the high plains of Wisconsin, the murky underwater depths of northern Florida and Louisiana gator territory.

Reigning champ Rygaard Logging of Washington, run by the father-and-son team of Gabe and Craig Rygaard, is back to defend last year's title. But competitors are coming from all directions. In Alaska, Papac Logging, owned by Mike Papac, looks to reclaim the title. From Canada, Lemare Lake Logging returns to take another crack at the Dock Creek site that defeated them two years ago. In Oregon, Big Gun Logging is stepping up their game to throw down with the big boys. Down south, Shelby Stanga is back in the Louisiana swamps with a revolving crew of assistants that include his wife Donna, cousin Belinda and fearless niece Stephanie. In Florida, the father-son duo of Jimmy and James Smith set out to conquer a new river. But they've got company in the young, whip-smart Dreadknots.

What's more, a new type of logger emerges from the Midwest. The Wisconsin Woodchucks are harvesting 100-year-old wood from a crumbling building - but it's a house of cards where one wrong move could bring everything crashing down.

AX MEN is one of several hit series produced for HISTORY by Original Productions. Executive producer for HISTORY is Mike Stiller. Executive producers for Original Productions are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, and Jeff Conroy.
