In a time before supermarkets, grocery stores, and anything engineered for convenience or timeliness, there was only one way to sustain a lifestyle – go out and forage your own path. Before we could buy packaged meat, we had to hunt, kill, and butcher it ourselves, a practice that seems pretty savage to most in today’s prepackaged world. But there are those who still rely on this lifestyle and to truly value it, one would have to experience the necessity of it.
The Life Below Zero cast can testify, in some far corners of the earth this lifestyle is still a necessity. Everything about the natural world governs life in the desolate reaches of Alaska. Where is the herd at this time in the season? Is the frozen lake thick enough to cross? Am I, myself, being hunted? Nature governs everything and there are no guarantees.
From dealing with impending weather to competing with local wildlife, this Sunday’s Life Below Zero: The Chase demonstrates each member of the cast’s unique challenges when dealing with the forces of nature.
