Man versus nature:  It’s a conflict as old as storytelling itself.  And for one Grand Ledge man, it’s a conflict he will never forget. 

Last September, Adrian Knopps, an electrician and avid hunter, went on a bear-hunting trip in southeastern Alaska with his friend, Alaska native Garrett Hagen. Only Adrian came back alive. And that was after he miraculously survived a week stranded in the wilderness with little to eat or drink, inadequate clothing and no shelter.

Adrian Knopps was gracious enough share his story with Current State producer Joe Linstroth.
