First aired on April of 2006, Mantracker is a Canada-based TV series brought to viewers by Bonterra Productions. Mantracker is created and directed by Ihor Macijiwksy and is hosted by Terry Grant and Chad Savage Lenz. Presently, Mantracker is on its 7th season with a total of 60 episodes. The first season aired each episode for 24 minutes while the second to the current episode runs for approximately 44 minutes.

Mantracker airs in Canada on the Outdoor Life Network channel while it is shown in the US on the Science Channel. For UK viewers, you can catch Mantracker on Extreme Sports channel. Mantracker is sort of a cat and mouse chase except the landscape is the entire remote Canadian or American prairie lands. A professional tracker pursues 2 contestants in a specific stretch of land while the pursued individuals, who are pertained to as the Prey, should be able to hide and escape from being captured by the man tracker. Once they reach the finish line, they win against the pursuer. It is the job of the man tracker to locate the contestants before they can reach this line.

In the latest season, Terry Grant is replaced by Chad Savage Lenz as the Mantracker. The object of the series is for the Prey to cross an appointed finish line, which is 17 to 60km away from them. They must do this without getting caught by the Mantracker and while battling the harsh elements including weather conditions and climate temperatures. There is no prize money for this game, yet it does earn you bragging rights and a personal achievement.

For every episode aired, 2-person teams of prey who are typically related to each other in some way are tested in the wilderness. Here, they will practice survival techniques and physical fitness capacities. The sole equipment offered to the prey are a map to lead themselves from the starting point to the finish line and a compass to help them navigate through extremely wide terrains. The prey will also have the equipment they consider vital to accomplish obstacles.

Contestants are not briefed on how they will avoid the Mantracker. In fact, the Mantracker will not be meeting the prey face to face or know the location prior the actual hunt.
