The History Channel has attempted to expand on it's "reality TV" theme along the lines of "Swamp People" or "Axe Men" but the newest edition "Mountain Men" really misses the mark. Promotions suggest viewers will learn how to live off the grid but none of the featured "mountain men" actually do that. Tom Oar lives in a very comfortable modern home in the Yaak Valley of Montana. Marty is an Alaskan trapper who does spend part of the year in a remote cabin but flys home to catch his daughter's ballet performance. Eustace Conway runs a sort of New Age, back to the earth hippie commune where people pay big bucks to visit the remains of an old farm.
The producers try to make high drama of every day activities. Will Marty finally catch something? For three episodes he has not. Will a bear eat Tom's dog? With deep snow the bears should be in hibernation. Will Eustace be able to cut enough firewood to pay his taxes? According to his web site he charges $650 for a person to camp five days on his land.
Here's a clue for the producers, "real mountainmen don't have web sites". LOL

Taxes on Turtle RanchRating: 0 likes, 2 dislikes
Why does Eustace feel that the taxes on his property are unfair? Everyone pays taxes on property.

Also it is so easy to see that the producer for this show wrote the script. Eustace and his friend rode their horses into town (20 miles round trip) to save money??? Give me a break. It looks like his friend could afford the $5.00 for gas to drive a truck into town. Also riding a horse that has never been around traffic into town? How stupid is that? And he waits until the afternoon of the last day to go into town to protest the taxes? Geez...surprise...surprise. Where's the attorney? Please don't let Eustace plead his case. Good thing he didn't shot the poacher last week if he would have caught him. He'd been in jail...but that's all right cause everthing Eustace does is all right. Can't wait till next season.
