Summer brings on new challenges as the third season opens. In addition to the challenges the crews already face, they’re now competing to take the title of “King of the Mountain” from Rygaard. Contenders Pihl Logging and J.M. Browning are in stiff competition for the title. S&S Aqua Logging decides to start operations in Florida. Conner Aviation is in urgent need of a top-notch pilot. In a new challenge, Ax Men heads to the Louisiana swamps and meets one of the most unusual characters they’ll ever encounter, Shelby Stanga.
