After three straight seasons of battling some of the toughest terrain in the North Country together, brothers Chris and Casey Keefer have decided to bring along some partners for Dropped: Project Be Alive. The father and son duo that will accompany the brothers to Alaska have been chosen by Chris and Casey through an extensive video submission selection process. The foursome will split into two teams, each brother bringing one of the newcomers along for the ride.
The teams are separated by 40 miles of rough terrain with a common goal to survive for 28 days. As long as the weather, the landscape, and the predators cooperate, the four men will be reunited at a predetermined extraction point at the end of their 28 day trek through Alaska.
The elder Keefer brother by four years, he got his start in the hunting industry by working as a whitetail guide. That experience shaped him into a diligent student of the whitetail game. As co-host of BackCountry Quest and Dropped, Chris spends countless hours in pursuit of a wide array of big game trophies in some of the world’s most epic destinations.
His ability to capture the essence of the hunt and share it with viewers is a huge reason why he’s an acclaimed outdoorsman and filmmaker, as well as one of the industry’s most respected pro staffers. Chris is focused on educating viewers about the gear he trusts for his safety and success.
Casey Keefer began hunting at an early age, and was addicted from the get-go. With a goal of turning his bowhunting passion into his life’s work, he followed the same path as Chris and guided whitetail hunters for several seasons. After a few seasons of consistently putting his clients in front of trophy-class deer, Casey quickly evolved from hunting guide to popular television personality.
His intensity, honesty and ability to tell an authentic, compelling story with cutting-edge production value has made Casey a fan favorite personality and a highly sought after pro staffer for many of the top brands in the outdoor industry. He’s a self professed whitetail addict who spends more than 250 days a year studying, scouting and hunting big bucks!
