The fight against the elements, against hunger, thirst and fatigue, keeps two men busy for weeks. Biologist and survival trainer JOE VOGEL, accepts to take an inexperienced layman by the hand to show him how to survive in the wild.

The series CALL OF THE WILD shows the viewer innumerable tricks and amazing techniques that give him the knowledge of where calories are to be found, how to set traps, how to treat illness and injuries and how to interpret the signs of nature correctly. But Joe and his student are not satisfied with bare survival. In the horizontally told series they will gradually raise their standard of beeing in the wild. If the first nights are still spent in a primitive shelter, in the end they will be protected by a hut which was built with bare hands. If they literally still live from hand to mouth in the first days, they will smoke meat and fish a little later and show how the meat is preserved for years.
But one thing is for sure... it won't get any easier for them...
