Wolfman, Devil Dog, Grassman, Wampus Beast, Mothman, Lizard Demon – for generations, these mysterious Appalachian monsters have spawned countless sightings in the 1500-mile long mountain chain. With a distinctive landscape of dense woods, murky lakes, and hidden valleys stretching the length of the eastern U.S., the region is a hotbed for creatures both legendary and unidentified.
Now in Destination America’s new series MOUNTAIN MONSTERS, a band of hardcore hunters and trappers native to West Virginia and known as The Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) is at the ready to identify and snare these shadowy figures in the hope of helping local mountain communities rest more easily when night falls and nature comes out to play.
Having spent a lifetime with the mountain wilderness as their home, hobby, and hunting ground, the AIMS and its founder John “Trapper” Tice expertly tap into their backwoods ingenuity using both traditional techniques and modern technology to capture the supernatural beast. The six-episode first season of MOUNTAIN MONSTERS premieres Saturday, June 22 at 10 PM E/P.
Grassman of Perry County premieres tonight at 10 PM ET/PT on Destination America.
