Plot Synopsis

In each one-hour episode of BUSHCRAFT BUILD-OFF, legendary bushcrafter Matt Graham challenges two master bushcrafters to compete head-to-head in builds that test their abilities in different environments, topography and primitive living challenges. Each build pushes the competitors' skills, stamina and creativity to the limit as they try to create eye-popping builds -- from bridges to weapons to structures to transportation -- using nothing but their hard-won skills, a few simple hand tools and whatever resources nature provides. And this is a bushcraft challenge, so there's no hardware store in sight. The builders can only use the natural materials in their immediate surroundings. This seven-day race against the clock tests the primitive building skills that have allowed survivalists to thrive in the wilderness for generations. In the series opener, Matt challenges two top bushcrafters to build a bear-proof shelter that's made to last, using only three tools and nothing but the natural materials available around them in Utah's Aspen forest. Then, in the second episode, two top challengers must create a shelter at least 5 feet above uneven terrain that will protect them from muddy ground, dangerous heat, and fierce predators, using only one hand tool and natural resources.
