Plot Synopsis

Hidden in the thick forests of the Pacific Northwest, a select group of men have sought out the ultimate freedom -- a life in the treetops far removed from the trappings of modernity. They live in primitive structures built with their own bare hands in a place where meat is hard to find, vegetation is frozen and supplies are low. Using age-old skills and innate ingenuity, these woodsmen carve out the lives they've chosen amid a harsh, unforgiving landscape. THE WOODSMEN is a one-hour reality series that tracks five men -- Mike & Steve, Ethan & Aza, and Jay -- as they develop their tree structures, build the essentials for off-the-grid living, hunt, forage, barter and do whatever it takes to thrive in the most unlikely of places. Mike used to do carpentry work in Southern California, but has since left behind the comforts of the desert to find solace in the forest, where he's been living off the grid for nearly 20 years and where he met his right-hand man, Steve. Steve traveled the world as a military brat and picked up countless skills along the way. Now, he makes knives and other weapons to support his true passion: hunting. In Western Idaho, Ethan built a home 25 feet in the air when he moved back to the wild after living in Boise. His best friend, Aza, is a small-time mechanic who can make anything run, and together they spend a lot of time free climbing, hunting and creating what they need to survive. In a third location, Jay has found freedom without rules for the past 17 years as he's built his life in the trees. This master inventor has an uncanny ability to repurpose an otherwise useless item into something essential, and he barters his creations for food, tools and anything else he needs.
On Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of THE WOODSMEN. In the season ender, "The Big Bang," the men race to complete the biggest projects they've ever tackled. One pair of woodsmen face off with aggressive intruders.
