Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life off the grid? Have you wished you could shed the complications of modern society and live in the wilderness, using only the things nature has provided? Meet Eustace Conway, Tom Oar and Marty Meierotto of the new History series Mountain Men, three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. But how simple is it really for the Mountain Men?From the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the seven-month-long winters on the Yaak River in Montana to the frigid northern range of Alaska, the country is full of some very unforgiving terrain. Watch as these men face off against mudslides, falling trees, ravaging weather and even hungry animals, to make sure they obtain the food and supplies they will need to make it through the brutal winter months ahead.
The Mountains of North America haunt the imagination, masking a danger few are willing to confront. Despite the challenges, some choose to live this way, the last of their kind. Eustace Conway lives deep in the mountains of North Carolina. He moved here 33 years ago in search of a more "truthful" existence. In the years since, he's built a home, and survived by hunting, fishing and raising animals. Tom Oar lives with his wife on the Yaak River in Montana. He is 100 miles from the nearest town, a place he hasn't ventured to in 10 years. Marty Meierotto, his wife Dominique and their daughter Noah live in the small Alaskan town of Two Rivers. Every month, Marty pilots his bi-plane, traveling into the bush in search of the wolverine and lynx pelts he needs to make a living. While he's on the Black River, he must hunt moose and caribou to survive in the wilderness. Together, these men represent America's true Mountain Men.
Tom Oar tries to save a friend's water supply and hunt his winter's meat surrounded by grizzlies. Eustace Conway deals with the threat of someone trying to take his land. Marty Meierotto combats life or death situations due to breakdowns.
Eustace's fight with Justin reaches a boiling point while Tom loses his way high in the Rockies and Marty fights the elements as he tries to get home.
In the Yaak of Montana, Tom Oar is faced to make a decision that will determine the rest of his life. While being alone for months in Alaska, Marty Meierotto will battle the weather in order to make it home for his family. And in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Eustace Conway despite being ill continues to do what it takes to protect Turtle Island.
Tom Oar must put his work on hold while he tries to find winter meat and protect himself from looming predators. Eustace Conway brings in a former Turtle Island worker to pick up the slack and protect Turtle Island's most valuable resource. And Marty Meierotto battles time and Mother Nature as he races to make his fur deadline.
Tom Oar is forced to take matters into his own hands and push dangerous wolves away from his property. In North Carolina, the water runs out for Eustace, shutting down Turtle Island. And in Alaska, a simple mistake could cost Marty everything.
High in the Appalachians, Eustace Conway is forced to track down a poacher that has trespassed upon his land. In Alaska, Marty Meierotto is in on the hunt to provide for his family when unwanted grizzlies make themselves known. And in the Yaak Valley of Montana, bears wake as Tom and friend Tim hunt antlers deep into the forest. But when things get dangerously quiet, they soon realize they are not alone.
In North Carolina, Eustace Conway s land is in jeopardy, so he saddles up and rides into town to make his final stand. In Alaska, Marty battles weather and wind as he attempts to feed his family and make it back home alive. And finally, Tom Oar's under the gun to finish his goods when an unwelcome bear threatens his family.
