Think you're tough? Wait until you see this incredible showdown!
Every Labor Day weekend, the town of Fort Bridger, Wyoming hosts the annual Mountain Man Rendezvous. The resourceful contestants--men and women alike--set up buckskin tents and tepees as they prepare to compete in what might be described as the Grizzly Adams Games, where they test their skills against one another in a variety of events that harken back to the days when survival was an essential skill, not a lifestyle choice. Host Terry Bradshaw follows the action during one of the most exciting contests--knife throwing. The buckskin-clad athletes don't just toss their weapons at a log. Instead, they demonstrate great precision as they try to slay rubber snakes on the ground and up in trees. Other trials include tomahawk throwing, spear throwing, black powder target shooting, and an egg-eating competition.
Witness the unshaven fun in the high desert of Southern Wyoming, and meet the contestants who make the Survivor folks look like wimps!
