Mountain Men is a reality series which follows three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. 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, these men risk it all living off the grid.
A native of Idaho, Rich Lewis now lives with his wife, Diane, in the isolated Ruby Valley in southwest Montana. Rich pursues his passion for tracking mountain lions there with the help of a team of hounds. It’s dangerous work; mountain lions have been known to attack and kill humans, and one has already killed Roxie, one of Rich’s prize hounds. It’s the only job Rich would ever want to have, though. His commitment to treeing and tracking lions takes a backseat only to the most pressing matters, such as hunting elk for the dinner table or preparing for the brutal Montana winters. Rich’s larger-than-life personality hearkens back to the historic mountain men in whose footsteps he walks.
