'Mountain Men' Season 9: Release date, cast, trailer and all you need to know about History Channel reality show
Living in the mountains can be rewarding but only when you know your way around it
"City life sucks, I want to go live on a hilltop." We have all said this when work got too much but how many of us acted on that emotion? The men of 'Mountain Men' did. The popular History Channel show is all set to return this week with returning cast members who will set out on adventures in the unforgiving mountains that not only bring harsh winters but also, food-related challenges.
'Mountain Men' Season 9 is scheduled to air on Thursday, June 4, at 9/8 c on History Channel.
Living in the mountains can be rewarding but only when you know your way around it. The charming aura of it all fades when the freezing winter traps one in the four walls of a DIY shelter that may or may not be able to withstand extreme snowfall or strong winds. But that's the fun. The men and their families recognize the challenges that come with surviving in the wild but they are more than willing to take the risk.
The idea is to teach how with a little bit of will, grit, and ingenuity, people can achieve a lot. "Winter in the North American wilderness cannot be conquered. At best, it is endured. And only by those who will fight tooth and nail for the privilege of survival," History Channel wrote on their website.
The adventure reality series features Tom Oar, Eustace Conway, Josh Kirk, The Hawks, Jake Herak, Mike Hortsman and Kidd and Harry Youren. However, the focus is on Tom and Eustace, and how they earn their living and survive the cold. While Eustace teaches people to basic survival techniques, Tom will be seen prepping for the winters as the spring arrives. Tom lives by the Yaak river, Montana with his wife Nancy and their dog Ellie. Eustace owns a land and earns his daily wage by selling firewood.
