it is called mountain men, venture over to the main forum and read the post over there about it...

I think it pretty much sucks, and can't watch it. I was so disinterested I let my wife switch the tv to some rich housewives show and listened to a bunch of cackling, loud, obnoxious and stupid women argue. unfortunately the later was a better alternative to the mountain men show.

Wolves, complete with "snarling" sound effects,, none the less,,,,,

And the guy in Montana has bears hiding behind every tree,,

I think the only thing the guy in the carolina's is afraid of is the county-auditor,,
he appears to have an issue with paying property-taxes,,

the wolves were in sagebrush. I happen to know for a fact there is a ton of sagebrush over on marty's line lol.
Still there are some good things about the show, for one not gut punching trappers!

I enjoy the show, but take it with a grain of salt, it's TV.

I watched it and enjoyed Marty. The guy in Mt. needs to move someplace safe like maybe Chicago and the guy in the backwoods is awfull.

Pretty sure Marty won't get star struck.

..and I thought it couldn't get worse..

A whinny "Mountain Man" with tax problems and a "Fraidy Cat" who needs to tune his traps before getting on National TV.

Only a "pavement pounder" could find it "interesting".

If I were Marty I wouldn't want to be lumped in with those two. lol

Lol, they definitely are not giving any secrets away. I love it for the fact they are not down talking trappers. I personally wouldn't want them following me on my line. I'm sure it wod be hard to find a descent trapper that would allow/want it.

You are right on Paul. It has to warm up to snow heavy.

Since I can't watch the show, here's something for you to watch for. Focus in on the backs of Marty's hands. Now if he really was working on his engine at below ten below he should have frost nip on the backs of his hands from the grease. If not, they been faking it. LOL crazy

When the thermometer showed this, the only thing in the air was ice fog when going down the highway...
