Metallica's James Hetfield Set to Narrate History Channel Series 'The Hunt'
Known as an avid hunter, as well as one of the greatest metal frontmen of all time, Metallica's James Hetfield was officially announced as a part of somewhat different project - a History Channel show.

According to the official press release, Papa Het will narrate the channel's upcoming series "The Hunt," an eight-episode show about bear hunting set for a June 8 premiere.

As the release further reads, the series "documents one of the most dangerous pursuits known to man" - the hunt for one of the biggest predators on the planet, Kodiak brown bear from Alaska's Kodiak Island.

These bears can grow up to 12 feet (3.65 m) and weigh as much as 1,500 pounds (680 kg). An average hunt lasts for 10 days, with a success rate of just 50%. "Most of the hunters look at Kodiak as the hunt of a lifetime, yet less than half walk away with their tag filled. While getting a bear is no easy task, most hunters still value time-honored traditions by hunting with bow-and-arrow, black powder single-shot rifles, and/or use the minimum amount of technology possible," the release reads.

"Honoring the animal is paramount and taught to all hunters who come to the island. Hunters have an ethical and legal responsibility to strive for clean kills that is taken very seriously. There are pages of stringent regulations they must follow that ensure respect for the animal and the land."
