"Mountain Men" premiered on the History Channel on May 31, 2012. As of September 2015, "Mountain Men" is in its fourth season and airs on Thursday evenings.
"Mountain Men" documents the lives of three men: Eustace Conway, Marty Meierotto and Tom Oar. Conway lives along the western edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina and survives on the food that he can grow, fish or hunt. Meierotto lives in the northern range of Alaska and pilots a small plane in search of animal pelts. Oar lives along Yaak River in Montana and spends his time chopping wood and gathering food in preparation for a harsh winter that lasts seven months.
