A very interesting insight into modern people living in traditional ways... Fascinating!
Stuart Dooley
These gentlemen have lived this way for decades and they don't make stupid life threating mistakes as they portray on the show.

My husband and I love to watch shows about people who try to live as much "off the grid" as possible.

Seriously? Can we stop the drama and get back to discovering what people who live in the mountains do to survive? Let's see the gardens, the process of putting food up, how to skin a beaver, what they do in the evenings, how do they relate to their families...not silly (looking much like contrived) situations. For example...with a cameraman present, it was doubtful Marty would freeze or dehydrate to death. Just way too hokey as it stands. Maybe season 2 will be better.

Mountain Men could be a much better show. The subject matter and even the people they have on the show are fine, but how the show is put together and presented needs major changes.

There is way, way, way too much repeat lines and recap (I can't stress this enough), too much building up and inserting fake scenes of wolves or bears, etc, way to much cutting away from the story after you get 2-3 minutes of something new in one story line.

I watched the entire season with my son, but we both feel this show could be so much better if you showed more of what goes on in the lives of the "mountain men" and stop trying to build drama on non events and please stop repeating so much content and lines.

I was altogether disappointed with this series. Only about 20% of the camera-time is spent on interesting happenings, the other 80% is spent on filler air-time accompanied by desperate yet futile effort to make life seems dangerous, interesting, and dramatic. Yet when you've finished an episode, and reflect back on it - you swiftly realize that during that 30 minutes episode.... nothing actually happened.

This show is supposed to be about "mountain men". But its not.

Tom Oar is a retired guy living with his wife in a very nice house in a very remote area of Montana. He hunts and he heats his home with wood. He has reasonably close neighbors. But they make him look like a fool by playing some game where he is supposedly going out in the woods to "scare" the wolves up higher into the mountains and away from his property. Someone also might want to tell him that butchering animals outside close to the house will tend to attract animals. But he probably already knows that.

Marty Meierotto is a fur trapper in Alaska. He runs traplines alone in a remote part of Alaska. He is the real deal, but the show makes him look silly. Every trap on the show is empty (for obvious reasons) and they keep making him look like he is so incompetent that he can't even ride a snowmobile on a packed trail without crashing. The whole mountain man thing doesn't quite work because he commutes by airplane to his trapline on a regular basis. He is not living out there for the winter. Every trap he finds being empty makes him look foolish.

Eustace Conway is the archtypical hippie con man. Everything is fake. Everything is done badly. Everything is strictly for show. He seems to run a combination summer camp and disfunctional 1000 acre farm. They show him taking his horse up in the hills and bringing down an old rotten log laying on the ground. He talks about living a certain way in the foreground, but in the background of every picture you can see that he has and is using all sorts of heavy equipment. Hunting deer is not equal to being a mountain man.

Seems like too much created drama. There's always a crisis where they can die at any minute. None of them are ever successful at trapping, hunting. Eustace is flat out boring. He's about to lose his land but he decides to ride into town on horseback to save a few bucks on gas. He's an idiot. And he's $85k in debt to taxes and acts like this is news to him. Really? Marty checks his traps with dangerous wolves and bears around but doesn't take a gun and now he's in danger. This series was more nauseating than edge of your seat. Amazing any of these guys have lasted this long. Tom was the most interesting but his parts were like telling stories around the campfire versus real adventure. There's just not enough material, too much filler and pretend drama.

I caught an episode one night and have followed it from the beginning to now. In some aspects the producers do over play the production and there are a lot of thing they tend to either under play or totally ignore. I guess the real facination I get from the show is the insight to the lives of the 3 men. Personally I would love to have the time to just sit and chat with each of them but we all know that ain't gonna happen. I will say that yes they are all modern men with some conviences to make life easier than it was in the 1800's but I don't see or hear of many folks willing to set out on the path these 3 have chosen. Let's hope the producers start doing a better job since I would like to continue following the lives of these folks. If not I fear the show will be short lived.

One final mention, the show has inspired me to look into a more simplistic life style and possibly going off the grid.

what takes 40 minutes to get out in the program could of been done in 5 minutes. This would be a fun series if the producers focused on things other than trying to be over dramatic about situations in the show. I don't know how many times I heard a bear can kill a person or that wolves are dangerous because they hunt in packs. I got it on the first time around.
