Hunter Force: Mongolian Hunters
Location: Gorkhi Terelj National Park, Mongolia
The Mongolian hunters have just 36 hours to track, hunt and capture Joel through the challenging and frigid winter conditions of Mongolia. Some of the world’s most proficient horsemen, the Mongolian team will not only have its trusted ground support, but also a strategic air asset – the golden eagle. With eyesight eight-times sharper than a human, the golden eagle is able to spot movement several miles in the distance and alert the hunter of prey. To make matters even tougher, Joel must also contend with unforgiving winter weather, finding himself in temperatures as low as -22 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s Joel vs. traditional tracking skills and animal instincts in a race to his extraction point.
