Lana notes that “lions can run faster than you,” but it is hard to resist testing this theory when a male lion decides to press that point home in a most decided manner. Out of necessity, Jack and the PH stand their ground and try to settle the matter with a well-aimed bullet.

Not content with hunting only in warmer climates, the couple heads for the Arctic in search of muskox and polar bear. In the Canadian hamlet of Grise Fiord where polar bears have been known to roam through the town in the dark winter months, they find the hotel has frozen water pipes and the do-it-yourself-restaurant consists of an ice chest with packaged food that has expiration dates from half a decade ago. The muskox hunt seems relatively uneventful until a blizzard hits, the temperature drops to 75 below, and Lana is blown off her transport.  Hardly thawed out, the pair continues on a quest for a polar bear, spending thirteen more days on the ice in search of an old boar.

On a leopard hunt in Zimbabwe, a cat emerges at dark and heads straight for the blind. A desperate shot leads to a wounded leopard that instantly unleashes its fury on a charge to the blind. Their adventures with cats continue with a hunt in British Columbia for mountain lion in minus-22-degree weather. Here they also try for wolves, and they even attempt a driven wolf hunt.

Several trips for bears cumulate in a tense standoff in coastal Alaska where Jack and Lana confront a bear of considerable size. They then book a moose hunt during the “rainy season” in Alaska, which, they find, is almost any day of the year. Then there is a bongo hunt in the rainforest where getting to camp is more of a challenge than all the snakes and gorillas that will confront them once they arrive.
