Description

The camera crew heads out across Dymond Lake during whiteout conditions, searching for polar bears. Perfect hunting conditions—for the bears—not so much for the humans. Polar bears are silent, have no scent, their hearing and eyesight are comparable to humans, and they can smell prey from more than 32 km (20 miles) away.
