Rygaard Logging Faces Pressure to Stay in Business on New Season of 'Ax Men'

By

After three years off the air, the popular History Channel series Ax Men is back for a brand-new season. The docuseries focuses on logging companies competing in the oversaturated market, while battling mechanical issues and extreme weather conditions. One familiar crew fans can look forward to seeing is father-and-son team Craig and Jason Rygaard. Yes, Rygaard Logging is still in business.  

In Season 10, audiences will watch as the family duo tries to keep their company afloat after a tragic accident in September 2016 took the life of Craig’s oldest son and company owner, Gabe Rygaard. “Gabe was the heart and soul of the crew, as well as the man who kept the bottom line in check. Without him, they have no leader,” the show bio states. Now, the torch has been passed to Gabe’s little brother Jason, but keeping the business in the black may be harder than it looks.
