Discovery is taking survival to a new level as they search for the most talented bushcrafters from across the country. Hosted by primitive skills master Matt Graham, Bushcraft Build-Off, premiering on Wednesday, November 15 at 10pm ET/PT, is an all-new competition series where elite builders compete in a gruelling, seven-day race against the clock. And this is a bushcraft challenge, so there’s no hardware store in sight. The builders can only use the natural materials in their immediate surroundings.
This competition will test the primitive building skills that have allowed survivalists to thrive in the wilderness for generations. But is now amplified on the web and through social media as these young masters attempt to outdo one another with more and more elaborate builds.
Leading the Bushcraft Build-Off charge is legendary bushcrafter Matt Graham (Dual Survival). Each week, Matt challenges two master bushcrafters to compete head-to-head in builds that test their abilities in different environments, topography and primitive living challenges. Each build pushes the competitors’ skills, stamina and creativity to the limit as they try to create eye-popping builds – from bridges to weapons to structures to transportation – using nothing but their hard-won skills, a few simple hand tools and whatever resources nature provides.
Bushcrafting’s Best is a Discovery GO companion series that gives an in-depth look at the build process of host Matt Graham’s favorite builds from Discovery’s new Bushcraft Build-Off series.
