"Ax Men" Season 8 is a reality docu-series that returns on the History Channel with the loggers taking on America's deadliest job to earn their cut of the timber fortune. The battle for "green gold" is more explosive than ever with two new crews joining the pack of hungry loggers making this the toughest, most dangerous season yet.

Season eight picks up as the loggers come off a nationwide building boom forcing the crews to push further and harder. Hoping to reclaim the title "King of the Mountain," Rygaard Logging is going further into Washington's Olympic Peninsula, to an extreme site that hasn't been logged in over a century but reigning champs Papac Alaska isn't going down without a fight. Two new crews are joining the ranks — Triak Logging (British Columbia) who is considered the black sheep of the logging industry for taking on jobs that others won't even consider and Zitterkopf (Wyoming), a family run outfit led by David Zitterkopf aka the "Madman of the Mountain" who chooses sites and sets up camp, miles from civilization, making this team not just loggers but mountain men and survivalists as well.

From the mountains of the Pacific Northwest to the waters of the Deep South — the rough-and-ready river logging crews are back at it, chasing their slice of the timber fortune. Fan favorite, Shelby Stanga the "Swampman" (Louisiana), is a logging legend who answers to no one and lives by his own set of rules. The feisty Dreadknots (Florida) are back facing off against Chapmen Logging (Florida) and the stakes have never been higher. A record breaking order has the two teams diving head-first into murky water in hopes of hauling in the most century old timber that's been perfectly preserved. Each team is back with their own set of challenges but they all have one thing in common — do whatever it takes to claim their slice of the timber fortune.

As the daughter of an old-time logger I couldn't be more proud of Big Gun Logging! They're what logging used to be! They can log and succeed without all the swearing, drama and bizarre behavior! If it continues like this I'll continue to watch. Levi & Luke (and Stacey) you make me proud. Carol
