The criteria remains the same—30 days, limited provisions, and a mission to accomplish —but the location has changed as the brothers forge their way through the unforgiving, rugged Yukon landscape, where their skills as hunters, woodsmen and anglers will be tried and tried again in this docudrama style expedition.
“Our viewers are in for another wild adventure only this time set against the harsh and stunning wilds of the Yukon, promising intense action and drama as Chris and Casey attempt to battle this unforgiving territory,” said Graig Hale, VP Business Development, Sportsman Channel. “We are extremely excited to bring back Dropped for a second season as it was a fan-favorite and programming that excites, engages and entertains our viewers across many platforms from TV to digital to social media.”
Season two finds the brothers in many hair-raising and intense situations, including learning to become seasoned horse riders, packers and wranglers, in an extremely short period of time. This season, each hunter is tested, both physically and mentally, more than ever before. Matched against dangerous terrain and unpredictable weather, each passing minute tests their grit and the difficulty of Dropped hits an all-time high.
In its inaugural season, Dropped: Project Alaska, the brothers were left alone in a remote part of Alaska for 30 days with no provisions and only 100 pounds of gear per hunter. This time around, the Keefers will begin their journey in the Yukon with only 50 pounds of gear each and very limited rations. True to form, all of the brother’s gear is for catching, killing and preparing their sustenance until their intended, but not guaranteed, pickup. With a pocketful of tags, they each have the potential of harvesting the coveted Yukon Slam.
“For more than 100 years humans have tried to domesticate the Yukon–and to this day, it’s yet to be conquered,” said Casey Keefer. “This season tested our mental and physical survival skills more than ever. We’re traveling further than we did in Project Alaska, and we’re really pushing the limits across the board.”
“The one thing we heard the most last season from our fans was that they enjoyed the realism of the Alaskan hunt. This season, we will once again show the highs and lows of being in such a remote location for an extended period of time,” said Chris Keefer. “The odds are definitely stacked against us each time we set out for Dropped, so we really have to push ourselves to the max in order to get it done for our fans.”
