[via press release from Animal Planet]



(New York, New York, March 13, 2014) - The Rocky Mountains, scattered with more than 3,000 miles of dense forests and rocky peaks, create the perfect hideaway for fugitives on the run from the law. In Animal Planet's new six-part series, ROCKY MOUNTAIN BOUNTY HUNTERS, two teams of elite fugitive retrieval agents are in hot pursuit of armed and unpredictable delinquents who've skipped bail, preferring the treacherous mountainous terrain to facing justice behind bars.

Premiering Sunday, April 13, at 10 PM (ET/PT), ROCKY MOUNTAIN BOUNTY HUNTERS follows professional bounty hunter pairs Clint and Dayson in Colorado and Rob and "Animal" in Montana as they patrol the harsh conditions surrounding the scenic yet deadly landscape of the Rockies. Tracking, chasing and capturing might be easy on the concrete streets of a modern metropolis, but when fugitives disappear into the immense wilderness inhabited by predators like black bears and mountain lions, it takes a special type of hunter to bring these fugitives to justice. Throughout the series, the region's most-wanted offenders, with a history of charges ranging from gun running to homicide to drug trafficking, attempt to evade the expert trackers who are always on the hunt. Each case is unique, but if you run, these wilderness bounty hunters won't stop until they catch you.

Guarding an entirely different landscape in the forests of Maine, the game wardens of NORTH WOODS LAW return with 10 new action-packed episodes premiering Thursday, May 29, at 9 PM (ET/PT). In a continuation of the second season, the game wardens dive even deeper into the unforgiving woodland while also venturing out to different parts of the Pine Tree State. And with hunting season in full swing, this elite force is hot on the heels of more poachers than ever before with new wardens joining an unpredictable mix of forensic investigations, tension-filled search and rescue operations, manhunts and amazing animal encounters with Maine's unique wildlife.
