Writer/director Stu Brumbaugh draws inspiration from his own harrowing, real life nature adventure to tell this tale of a hiker being staked through the Iron Ridge mountain range by a hungry bear. Jake and William were just two friends looking to get away from the big city when they found themselves stranded in Big Sky country. Later, as worsening weather diminishes any hopes of a speedy rescue, one of the stranded hikers discovers that he is being pursued by a hungry grizzly bear, and prepares to take a stand against the powerful beast.

Did You Know?
"Iron Ridge" was filmed entirely on location in Montana. The filming locations took place in the central and north western parts of the state; including Glacier National Park. "Iron Ridge" was filmed over the span of a year due to the fact that many of the locations were not accessible because of bad weather and snow during the worst parts of the winter. The bulk of the film itself, was made only by Joana Beeson and Stu Brumbaugh; who partnered to shoot the project together. Because director Stu Brumbaugh wanted to make sure the film had a "real life feel" to it, many grueling hours were spent by the duo trekking through forests, navigating muddy and snow filled roads, forging rivers and streams and pulling camera and sound gear up hillsides.
