It is the boldest survival experiment ever attempted. Ten men enter the Vancouver Island wilderness carrying only what they can fit in a small backpack. They are alone in harsh, unforgiving terrain with a single mission - stay alive as long as they can. These men must hunt, build shelters and fend off predators. It is the ultimate test of man’s will to survive.
Born in North Carolina, Brant grew up hunting and fishing on the Atlantic coast, on inland lakes and along rivers. During his military career in the U.S. Coast Guard, Brant was introduced to both land and sea survival techniques. After his tour with the Coast Guard, Brant became a full time employee of the Army Guard, where he served the remainder of his career as a helicopter crewman and gunner. Brant has utilized the skills he learned during his military career and forged a deeper understanding and respect for various survival techniques. Brant has also traveled as far as the Arctic Circle to provide aviation survival courses and impart the lessons he’s learned surviving in some of the world’s most challenging environments. For Brant, this experience on Vancouver Island is about the challenge and personal struggle he knows he will face. Brant has left behind a wife and three daughters to travel to the island. He believes if his various experiences have taught him anything, it is that survival is extremely dynamic and success or failure can hinge on the smallest factors.
