  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Icy Bay, where Team Riou Point and Team Back Bay are located, is the wettest part of Alaska. It gets over 200 inches of rain annually.

    • Team Back Bay: Jeff and Elizabeth go moose hunting with Neil Webster. They hear a moose in the thick brush, but never get a shot at it.

      Team Hawkins Glacier: Bernice is sick, possibly food poisoning from the goat, because the temperatures have been above freezing there for a few days. Greg tries to do the work of two to get them ready for winter. Bernice recovers, and they get back to work.

      Team Flower Lake: Tim draws the short straw, and goes mountain goat hunting with Paul Claus' son Jay. He shoots a goat, and is able to pack over 100 lbs of meat and fat back to the cabin, where they all feast on it.

      Team Riou Point: The family prepares their cabin for the coming winter, and tightens their belts after their failure in the previous moose hunt. They also find some berries, and make preserves.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Carolyn: (once they've built their bunk beds) I get to kick Jenny in my sleep. (she demonstrates)
      Jennifer: That's not cool.
      Carolyn: Then again, she gets to fart on me in her sleep. (they all laugh)

    • Jeff: At this point, we'll do anything for protein. The thought of having a shot and having the ability to provide Elizabeth and I with meat for the winter is just too powerful of an instinct for me to deny. So I know there'll be a moment of hesitation, 'cause it's a life, but at the same time, I'm providing for two lives out here, and I'll definitely pull the trigger.

    • Paul: (on hunting moose) It's not really fun being where they're at, and then once you get a moose, you've got this big old honking thing laying there on the ground and then it's like, what do I do now? It's not a casual, go sit in a tree stand and have a beer kind of hunt.
