Intense, Action-packed & Exhaustive Journey in the Yukon Comes to a Close for Keefer Brothers Tuesday at 9pm ET/PT Exclusively on Sportsman Channel
‘Weathered and Worn’ is a fitting title to encapsulate the final episode of Sportsman Channel’s exclusive reality-adventure series Dropped: Project Yukon that tested the Keefer brothers with their most difficult hunting and survival journey ever—all set in the unforgiving elements of the Yukon. Airing Tuesday, March 19 at 9pm ET/PT, the final episode finds the Keefers crossing paths with a mature Yukon moose that brings exhilaration, intense action and delivers an ending fitting a finale. Dropped: Project Yukon is a Sportsman Channel original series produced in conjunction with Rusted Rooster Media.
Day thirty in the Yukon begins with great optimism and soon flourishes into an intense stalk for a bull moose that will make any big game hunter envious. The brothers are trailing along when they spot the moose from their horses. After closing the distance to within one hundred yards, the moose disappears. Not deterred, Chris and Casey do not give up and decide to move to higher ground where they relocate the moose. Casey begins to close the distance with his rifle before the bull-moose provides a clearing for a clean shot. Casey connects on his first opportunity and makes the most of his chance from 285 yards. The moose measures at 61 inches across and has an impressive body mass. The real work now begins as ravens and possible bears circle the meat as the brother’s travel back from base camp with plenty of surprises in store.
“Having an opportunity to take a moose on one of the last days is truly a blessing,” said Casey Keefer of Dropped: Project Yukon. “It was my goal at the beginning of this trip to take a moose and its mission accomplished. Chris also harvested a moose which makes our Yukon experience even sweeter. This journey provided the most difficult hunting and survival environment I have ever encountered. There were many instances where frustration became an overriding factor, but I would not trade the experience for anything.”
“We are extremely proud of Chris, Casey and the entire Dropped team for enduring the rigors of the Yukon Territory,” said Graig Hale, VP of Business Development of Sportsman Channel. “The sophomore season of Dropped is performing very well and resonating across multiple platforms from TV to digital and social media. Authenticity is synonymous with Sportsman Channel and is at the root of our programming – and the Keefer brothers are great ambassadors. The season finale is sure to engage and impress our audiences.”
The finale is also an interactive experience as the Keefer brothers will host a LIVE chat during the final episode on Facebook at 9pm ET/PT. ‘Like’ Dropped on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DroppedTV
