AX MEN

The Hit Logging Series Returns for 7th Season Sunday, November 10 at 9pm ET on HISTORY

New York, Oct. 17, 2013 - They've got Ax Appeal! The unforgettably rugged men - and the women - of AX MEN are back on HISTORY in what promises to be the most dangerous and thrilling season yet. Featuring some new faces alongside familiar favorites, season 7 of AX MEN, one of HISTORY's most popular and long-running series, premieres Sunday, November 10 at 9pm ET.

From the Pacific Northwest to the Deep South, from mountaintop to river's bottom, these rough-and-ready loggers will go wherever and do whatever it takes to find the "Green Gold" worth millions as they compete in this year's race to be "King of the Mountain." As a warm-up for the explosive new 20-episode season, HISTORY takes a look back at seasons past in a special episode that premieres Sunday, November 3 at 9pm ET. The episode recaps the logging legacies of the companies who have made it this far and introduces viewers to the new rivals fighting for a share in the timber business.

Logging is one of America's oldest jobs - and one of the most dangerous, claiming lives every year. Falling trees, bone-crushing equipment, razor-sharp cables and human error can kill in an instant. But for the AX MEN, it's the life they know, the life they love and the life that makes them feel alive.

This season, a building boom has timber companies kicking into overdrive. They've got the biggest orders of their careers to fill, and at the highest prices. That means a big season for two-time reigning champion Rygaard Logging of Washington. Keeping the crown won't be easy for owner Gabe Rygaard, who's working on a difficult site, with an inexperienced team. And Gabe will have to do it without his father, Craig, who retired at the end of last season. Gabe's got even bigger problems when his arch-rivals Oakes Logging, who work in the same town, invade Rygaard's jobsite and try to dethrone the champ. Up in Alaska, Papac Logging, back from last year's devastating season-ending work stoppage, is once again in the fray. Mike Papac has taken on his company's biggest challenge to date, working mountainous terrain that have been declared "un-loggable," as two previous companies that were vanquished by the site can attest.

Meanwhile, down south, in Louisiana, Shelby "Swamp Man" Stanga gets the order of a lifetime that could make him a millionaire - a whopping 200,000 board feet of wood - but it might prove to be a bigger job than one man, even a man as gung-ho as Shelby, can handle. Over in Florida, the feisty Dreadknots team takes on their mentors, Chapman Logging, in a "log off," with the winner controlling the river logging rights for the entire northern half of the state.

The season's new faces include a couple of feisty Ax women. One is Katelyn M. Simsis, a knockout new member of the Deadknots. She's Kracken's cousin and every bit as tough as the boys. Then there's Adrienne Preiss, who joins the Papac crew. She's a rugged beauty whom a fellow logger describes as "my future ex-wife."
