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.
Marty has had to defer his dream of living off the grid full time, so he can come home to his wife, Dominique, and daughter, Noah. Dominique and Noah are Marty’s biggest supporters, encouraging him to follow his greatest passion: working a trapline in the forests of northern Alaska. It is excruciating for Marty to be away from his wife and little girl while he covers the 125 miles of his trapline, but he has to abide by his soul’s calling. Last year was one of Marty’s most difficult to date, marked by constant equipment failures and a disappointing yield of furs. Marty is determined, if not desperate, to have a better trapping season than last year, leading him to enlist a helper: University of Alaska student Andy Pribonic. If this trapping season doesn’t go better than last year’s, Marty may have to give up the mountain man lifestyle for good.
