Bear Kingdom Precious Resources With three victories to their credit, the Mountaineers feel this is their opportunity to take advantage of the island's most precious resource: silver salmon. Competition Brown Bear It's summer which means thousands of salmon are swimming upstream to lay their eggs. It also means the brown bears will be out to catch them. Running Into Trouble Marty and crew head for a fishing hole to reel in a feast and hopefully catch enough to preserve for future legs, but just 500 yards into the forest, they run smack into a gigantic male Kodiak. Carrying Onward With their confidence a little shaken, the Mountaineers team continue on their voyage to the LZ. Afognak Island Its leg nine, the three remaining teams land on Afognak Island, a 700-square mile wilderness ruled by a fearsome, supersized brown bear: the mighty Kodiak. In no more than 60 hours the teams must cross the treacherous rainforest with one goal in mind: get out alive. Close Call Luckily for the Military team, Afognak is full of food opportunities. The men set their sights on a nearby fishing home, but it's not long before they discover they have competition from the massive brown bears. Reap What You Sow Plenty of salmon for everyone. Island of Bounty Military Team portrait with their catch. Lost in the Storm Taking a detour along the coast to avoid dangerous bear encounters, the Military team is caught in a powerful rainstorm. In the height of the storm, the team loses their map and is left with no guidance, forcing them to rely solely on instinct to get them to the LZ.
