Just 100 kilometres from the Arctic Circle lies a town on the edge of civilization: Tanana, Alaska. This frozen village of 200 people is part of an unknown America where men hunt and trap to survive, subsisting like modern day cavemen. 

Hypothermia and starvation are a constant menace, and at these extreme temperatures, animals stay deep in their burrows or take shelter in the far hills. It’s an epic struggle to find the meat and fur vital to the town's survival. As prey gets scarce, predators get desperate for food, and can set their sights on the hunters themselves, or worse, unsuspecting villagers. 

Each changing season brings new struggles, new threats and new dangers, and to keep their way of life alive, a small band of men risk their lives to put food on the table.

See all new Yukon Men every Thursday at 8:30pm AEDT/NZDT.
