On Alaska's isolated tundra, a disembodied howl could be the wind, a wild animal or — if you're lucky — only your imagination. Chilling reports of supernatural activity and monster sightings have left generations of locals desperate for answers and shaking from more than just the frigid temperatures. Between the elusive Sasquatch and mysterious spirits, these series shine a light on the dark side of life on the last frontier, where miles of forest separate neighbors and no one can hear you scream.
Within the Last Frontier lies a region known as the Alaska Triangle, spanning 200,000 unforgiving square miles where more people go missing per capita than anywhere else on earth. Treacherous terrain and unforgiving natural elements have stopped many in their tracks, but some Alaskans hold onto the idea that mysterious monsters snatched them up. Unidentified crypto-creatures wander the state covered by millions of acres of dense wilderness and are known to lift and reposition trees with ease, create seismic activity with their minds, and even decapitate humans with one bite. This series travels with a team of native outdoorsmen, who call themselves the Midnight Sons, as they investigate the harsh Alaskan forest in a quest to uncover proof of frightening monsters thought to be living there.
In this series, the team hunts and traps with the latest 21st-century technologies and investigation tools to shed light on elusive beings from the Saberwolf and the Otterman to the Northern Giant. Follow as this courageous and entertaining group attempts to trap these infamous Alaskan creatures.
The second season is a dedicated "Bigfoot Edition," in which these expert trappers focus their efforts on capturing the king of covert creatures, Bigfoot. The native outdoorsmen employ thermal technology and modern tracking techniques in their quest to find evidence that Bigfoot calls Alaska home.
