Not only that but they are a 90 minute walk from downtown Homer and a grocery store............on a paved road.

Still a group of hard working people though. The old days weren't as easy as now

Putting a side the those shows are made for entertainment and not always factual. My hat goes off to the rural living people in Alaska, as it is not always that easy of life. We think in northern US it is tough living, in rural Alaska most wouldn't make it.

I believe that Tom and Marty two that come to mind quick are real deal the show does not show the real life they lead..
As far as real deal I mean I the trapping ability.

Yeah, I really don't think it is a survival situation for the Kilchers. They truly are very close to Homer. I stayed on their homestead for a while and got to know their Dad, Yule. He was one hard-working dude but also liked to party at Alice's Champagne Palace in Homer. Old Yule was kind of a chick magnet as well!

His kids seem to have inherited his work ethic. One time I was helping to clear a field, carrying logs to the side. All of a sudden he was bellering at me "Trow dose logs, don't drag them!"

One of the high points of my life up there. I enjoy the show because I still recognize some of the landscape.

From what's been posted on here and evidently some know Tom he actually is a member of trapping organizations and has fought for trapping rights. I think him and Marty are revered as the 2 best on that show, It's a race to the bottom as far as the others go to who's the bigger nitwit. I haven't watched it for a few years now, I figured out after awhile about anything else on TV was better than that. The scenery is good though.

It's for entertainment. If you tried some of that stuff you'd be laughed out of the area (probably by the wildlife). I'm not nearly as well schooled in the outdoors as most on here but at least I'm not that big of an idiot (that I know of) and I wouldn't want to broadcast it for everyone to see.

Nailed it.

Get a kick out of people bashing mountain men, but know all about it you must still be watching it.
Gotta keep things interesting right, I watch it and know about half of it is fake and over dramatic
But it give town folk some feelings of what goes on in the sticks.

I watch it regularly, but donít tell me you can hear a wolf while running a chainsaw. I enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

Tom is an old dude that is clearly knowledgeable on tanning/fur handling etc. I respect that heís still out there giviní er. That said the show is purely entertainment and one needs to accept it for what it is. There is a lot of ridiculousness on there that youíve got to find humor in.
