Alaska The Last Frontier

Alaska The Last Frontier Family Net Worth

Kilcher Family on “Alaska The Last Frontier”

When the Discovery Channel went looking for a real-life Alaska The Last Frontier Family for a new Reality Show, they couldn’t have picked a better Family than the Kilcher Homestead located outside of Homer, Alaska. The Kilcher’s Homestead dates back to 1936 when Yule and Ruth Kilcher immigrated from Switzerland to Alaska with a dream and 600 acres of raw, untamed land. Together they had eight children including Atz and Otto, who are now Reality Stars on The Alaskan Frontier Show.

The Kilcher Family’s lifestyle was exactly what the producers of Alaskan Frontier was searching for but what they didn’t know was one of the clan was already a Celebrity Star and Famous Musician. It seems some people believe the Kilcher’s got the part on Alaskan The Last Frontier because of Atz’s famous daughter and songwriter is known as “Jewel.” The fact is, the producers had no idea Jewel was a Kilcher and raised on the same Homestead featured in the Show.

Jewel wrote a fascinating article what it was like growing up on the Kilcher Homestead deep in the Alaskan Bush. Did you know the entire town of Homer, Alaska, helped raise money for Jewel to go to college before becoming a world-famous singer/ songwriter? While she chooses not to be on the Reality Show, Jewel and her Dad, Atz, wrote and sang the Alaska The Last Frontier theme song.

Atz Kilcher’s Net Worth

Atz Kilcher was born and raised in Homer, Alaska his entire life. Reading about Atz’s childhood growing up with seven sibling’s almost magically takes you back in time to a simpler, but a harder working lifestyle. Atz and his brother Otto lived their entire lives Homesteading the same land their parents acquired when they came to Alaska. Growing up in the middle of nowhere with no close neighbors in sight, the Kilcher’s kept themselves entertained singing songs and telling stories.

Atz’s love for telling stories in the form of songs evolved into four successful albums so far recorded. Atz’s artwork made on the Homestead is also becoming highly collectible and certainly helping add to his net worth. Did you know Atz also performs weddings on the Kilcher Homestead when not filming for The Alaskan Frontier Show? Atz Kilcher’s Net Worth along with his wife Bonnie Dupree estimated over $7 million including the Family’s priceless Alaskan Homestead.

Otto Kilcher’s Net Worth

Otto Kilcher is a master fixing just about anything imaginable on the Alaskan Frontier Homestead. If Otto can’t fix it, no problem, he’ll just improvise and create a new gadget that will work just fine. Otto and his wife Charlotte Kilcher got married and lived together on the homestead for over 20 years. One of their primary sources of income is from the cattle they raise and protect on their piece of the Alaskan Frontier Homestead.

Although Otto and Charlotte don’t have time for posting on FaceBook or anywhere on the internet, they do have a significant following of Fans interested in their unique lifestyle. You just never know what the heck Otto will create seemingly out of nothing. Otto and Charlotte Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated at $5 million. If you ask Otto, He’d probably say his pile of “stuff” is worth a million bucks alone.

Eivin and Eve Kilcher’s Net Worth

Eivin Kilcher is Otto’s oldest son who married Alaskan Native Eve Kilcher. Together they just had a son, Findlay, who’s helping start the fourth generation of Kilcher’s living near Homer, Alaska. Elvin, just like his dad Otto, has a unique way of fixing and building just about anything around the homestead. The new couple chose to start a Family much like Yule Kilcher did when first moving to Alaska. With a plot of untouched land a half a mile from Otto and Charlotte’s property, Elvin and Eve are slowly building their piece of paradise in The Alaskan Frontier. Elvin and Eve Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated over $2 million since becoming “real” Reality TV Stars.

Atz Lee and Jane Kilcher’s Net Worth

Atz Lee Kilcher and his native Alaskan wife, Jane, live a substance lifestyle mostly from hunting and fishing in Alaska The Last Frontier. While growing up in a musical family his entire life, Atz Lee, Jewel’s little brother, also has a gift for performing on stage. Watch some of Atz Lee’s videos on You-Tube performing on stage. O.K., maybe it’s best leaving the singing part to his big sister, Jewel.

When it comes to hunting and surviving in the Alaskan Bush, everyone can learn from Atz Lee Jr. Perhaps it’s because he takes the time explaining outdoor survival skills to his wife Janey, and to the growing audience watching Alaska The Last Frontier. Atz Lee doesn’t have time for the Internet, but his wife Jane frequently posts on FaceBook with over 40,000 Followers. Atz Lee and Jane Kilcher’s Net Worth estimated at $2+ million with very few monthly bills living on the Family Homestead.

Jewel Kilcher’s Net Worth

Jewel is the most famous Kelcher that’s not on the Alaska The Last Frontier Reality Show. When you see her nowadays, you’d never guess Jewel grew up on an Alaskan Homestead with no running lights or electricity. She might be a famous musician known around the world, but it’s easy to see Jewel’s still very close to the entire Kilcher Family in Homer, Alaska. Watching the famous singer getting picked on by her younger brother Atz Lee, shows how “real” the Alaska The Last Frontier Reality Show is in real life. Maybe, just maybe someday Jewel will make a guest appearance on Alaska The Last Frontier that would certainly rank high in the TV Ratings.

Like many episodes of Alaska The Last Frontier seen over the past few years, I never had any idea Jewel is part of the Kilcher Family until researching for this article. It makes you wonder how many more Fans this Show would attract if more people knew Jewel is Atz Lee’s Sister? Jewel Kilcher’s Net Worth is over $40 million, so it’ll take something more than just money for an appearance on the Show. Perhaps a challenge from Atz Lee to go Bear Hunting with his Famous Sister and see if she’s still up to the challenge after becoming rich and famous? Now that would be “priceless” watching Jewel spending time on Alaska The Last Frontier.

    but don't forget – if they lose their garden….they won't have vegetables all winter. Really? they own the only grocery store in Homer, Alaska.

      You’re not getting it: yes, they CAN go to the store, but because they WANT to hunt and fish and grow their vegetables, THAT is what sets them apart from you and me. Are YOU herding cattle 20 miles to grazing land? Are YOU planting a garden, or crapping in an outhouse in the middle of winter? Or are you going to the store? Just because they can go to the store doesn’t mean they do. Clue up.

        Right on Stacey. I love them all. Cannot say I have a favorite, they all keep me in awe of what they do and use each others strength’s and weakness to the group’s advantage and teach each other. I would say though, I relate more to Otto because he admits he is a little crazy like I admit to, lol. He has far more ingenuity than I do though. They all do. Great family and glad they have that kind of money now. Sure they did not when Mr Yule started the whole thing, lol. When they build something or add to something to the homestead, they look beyond their own lives and see it still being used 30 years from now. Imagine our Government using their philosophy? We would not be 20 trillion in debt. Am glued to the TV set for 2 hours each morning, haha.

          I love this show but feel that Otto is the most difficult to watch. He has little common sense, is very arrogant and treats Charlotte like a second class citizen. He should realize she is the tock that keeps him going! I would love to see a little less of Otto.

      I love the show but they make fools out of we fans when they say stuff like if they don’t fish, hunt and garden their families will starve. We know that’s not the case. I realize they choose to live that way and I am impressed by it but I wish they would stop acting like they are poor and will starve if they don’t kill that bear or grow those veggies. I admire their choice but don’t make us think they are poor like us. It makes me feel like a fool when they say stuff like that. We fans are smarter than that and they need to stop poor-mouthing it .

        Darlene, They have never stated they were poor. They only stated to live the lifestyle that they chose, they need to do those things and it is also to inform people who would want to make this lifestyle their choice, my feeling is money does not figure into this and it is about what you need to do. This is a great show. I love it but I am not someone who could do this in the shape I am in even though I spent 20+ years and retire from the military.

        i think why they say that about having to fet their fish and deer and other things for winter is to help people understand that if you were living just the homestead way that is what you had to do. Just like people used to do. They are making a show and trying to teach at the same time about living off the land.

Way to do things the simpler way without gadgets and electronics that overtake our lives. Keep kickn butt Kilcher Family and we’ll keep watching you in awe.

    They definitely try to pass off the idea that they have to hunt and fish and grow veggies for survival, but it's been pretty well established that they don't live very far from civilization and often go into town to hit grocery stores or whatever else. Surprise, surprise- "reality" TV is as fake as ever.

      Going to the local store is nothing compared to how this wonderful family struggles ever year to stock up with meat, fish and other small game. I give them so much credit for being able to live like this and don’t be fooled just because they can go into town when that like that life is not easy. It takes a special breed to stick to this kind of life style and I would say it’s much harder than living on a farm. Moving the cattle is a job in it’s self letting alone keeping all the animals they have in good health. Today I watch Ervin dig a trench to provide running water water for their house. How many guys are able to do that. These folks are farm strong and have carved out a life style that many envy. Would it be nice to get away from all the Hussein and busses and live off the land. I admire this great family and to see that Jewel is a member of this family really blows me away. This is a great show and I hope it on for a very long time. As for the Kilcher family, I salute you for doing what many Americans don’t have the guts to try. Good luck in all your endeavors and thanks for giving us not only great entertainment but a history lesson as well.

Same concept as grocery shopping they could but they don’t they work hard to eat well by choice. I bet your husband would eat well if he was there lol…!

This is the real thing people. They are teaching anyone watching that if you want to do this, then this is what it takes and family teaching family is important, not like the dog eat dog mentality of the lower 48. Just saying.

    I have been a really big fan of the show, but I guess when you look up about there life style on the Internet and start reading about them, the truth finally comes out.. Really disappointed how they make the look on show when in truth is nothing to their real life. And Jewel saying she was homeless is a big load of crap to get people to feel sorry for her, she always had a place to go. Just lost our support for the show. Wish them all the best in real life but a lie is a lie no matter how you try to act it out… ��

      Jewel was homeless. She left home because she was treated badly by her father. Read her book. The two older brothers both were and are tyrants. They expect their wives to work like dogs because they themselves do. I love the show and it is about as real as your going to get. That IS how they live, plant gardens, clear fields, log for wood, use outhouses and hunt and fish. If you don’t like it don’t watch.

    Yes they are all pretty well off but they still CHOOSE to live the life that they live. They raise their own cattle and raise chickens and vegetables. Do they have luxuries? Sure, they have rifles they have purchased, ammunition, tractors, trucks and a cargo boat as well as snowmobiles and quads, they never said they were living this way because they couldn't afford other means, they live this way because they choose too. Get over your slamming them and if you don't like it …change the channel.

    I live on a family farm that my grandparents started in the early 1900s when I was growing up people always thought we were rich because we lived in a big house. I have been tormented by this my whole life. We might have more but we worked for it. When you get off from work you go home and get ready for the next day.. Well when you have animals that depend on you, you can't just go home. My husband gets up every day at 4:30 am and works 11 hours before coming home to get to work on the farm until 9:00pm most days so shut up about how much money the Kilchers have, they've earned it.

    I don't believe the viewing audience is criticizing the kilchers for being successful. The criticism arises when they talk about running out food if they can't kill it or grow it.They create drama where there is none.
    Of course I'd love to be able to grow my own food
    and supply my needs without the grocery.
    I admire them for this and watch the show, mostly for their innovative solutions to problems. I jusi resent fake desperation. There are people in
    Alaska and elsewhere who really are that desperate.

    They do this with the vegetable growing, the raising of the chickens, the hunting, everything they do they make it appear as if it's vital for their survival.

    When the show first started, Atz Lee and Jane had two children. The children are no longer a part of the show. What happened to them?
    I do like watching the show. I think that Eiven and Eve are much more aware of the need to get work done during the summer as opposed to Atz Lee and Jane. There have been episodes where Atz Lee and Jane did not have any fire wood or meat and the family came together to provide for them. Atz Lee and Jane were out doing whatever instead of gathering fire wood.

    The Kilcher's have been a part of my Sunday night family time for a few years now. We really enjoy watching their family and appreciate them allowing us into their lives. It doesn't matter if they fudge the truth a little about why they are living this way. They do it because it is just how they live and we have no right to knock it. Just don't watch it if you dint like it.

    Lol mr. anonymous.. Yes they live 11 miles from a civilization. Its not a "omg we have to hunt or we'll die because were too far from civiliation to get food to save us". Its just what they CHOOSE to do. Its called Homesteading. Something theyve talked a bit about. They CHOOSE to live off the land and be self sufficient. Failure to them would be having to go to the grocery store. I do wish sometimes Discovery would be completely transparent about these things for the people that cant figure it out.

    I agree and if you watch the video of jewel and her dad singing he says they returned to the homestead to live like they did growing up. I don't see it so much as a reality show but as a lesson in what it takes to live a self sustaining lifestyle. That's all

    Bah humbug! Really? My elderly Dad is home bound and one of the few enjoyments he gets is watching TV. We've been watching this family from the beginning, and whether they live like that now, lived like that a long time ago, or their ancestors lived like that, my Dad, having lived through the aftermath of the Great Depression in New York City, enjoys seeing basically "how the other half lives." The family seems like really nice, wholesome, down to Earth people, so if you don't have something nice to say, say nothing at all!

      They sure can’t fake a earthquake, getting kicked in the nuts, haying, driving cattle 30 miles and falling off a cliff and almost dying. All of that and more is not faked.

    My wife and I enjoy the show and I enjoyed this article, although there are some glaring errors. Jewel not only wrote some articles (and has spoken in interviews) about growing up in Alaska and singing in bars while still a child, she also wrote her biography and published it under the title "jewel – never broken, songs are only half the story." She writes about the abuse she suffered as a child and about her mother abandoning the family when Jewel was eight, only to return when Jewel was signed to a record deal. She also writes about living in her car while performing in coffee shops in San Diego and her failed marriage. Read the book; it's very interesting.

    Most of the songs she writes are based on her life experiences. Also, the town of Homer put on a "benefit concert" which consisted of Jewel singing (at the age of about 15) to raise money for her to attend Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. Interlochen is not a college; it is a school, grades 3 through 12, for gifted children to study music and other arts. Jewel attended for two years (the town of Homer only paid for one year), studying music (voice) the first year and art the second year.

    As for the show, it's one of the better shows about life in Alaska. Some of it may be staged but at least the participants are civilized and treat each other with respect, and for the most part it is believable.

    Also, keep in mind that 600 acres is less than a square mile, so several families sharing the homestead is something less than a "wilderness."

    I stumbled upon this site looking for the same answer. Just watched the Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes and the kids weren't there. But neither was Otto & Charlotte's son, August. I still believe they live off the land and work extremely hard to do so, but I guess there are parts that are filmed for TV. 😉

    The fact that you say they aren't hard working, proves that you have never watched the show. Just because they have money doesn't make them lazy or non-self sufficent. They could easily pay to have indoor plumbing installed but they don't. They live off the land and find it important to grow their own food as much as possible and hunt their meat instead of buying it. They are all amazing. Their net worth changes nothing.

    It's very easy to say you'd love to grow your own garden, raise your own meat and hunt for the rest. I'll bet you wouldn't have the guts to weed a garden for a whole summer to reap the benefits of a real garden. Animals require a lot of work to maintain or they suffer and die. These people choose to live more frugally than you do and that is their choice. They have assets but they choose to hold onto them rather than just move to the city,get an apartment,buy fancy cars and acquire the lovely bills that go along with them. Having money doesn't mean you have to flaunt it or spend it, its just there if you need it and God forbid you waste it because keeping it in a family is much smarter.

    Several years ago I was lucky enough to live on just a couple of acres but we raised about four head of beef and a couple of pigs and chickens and a large garden. We both worked on our jobs and the little farm. We raised these things so WE would know what we were eating and shared it with our kids. There is nothing wrong with raising or hunting what you want to put in your body instead of being one of the SHEEPLE who follow what the government decides we willl eat. I'd do it all again if I could. So what if they have money, is that a sin? No, its just using your head for thinking instead of wearing a hat. Let it go people, jealousy is an ugly word.

    I want to also point out the article was about there "net worth" not their avalible cash two diffrent things. As a mid western farmer my net worth may seem large to a 90 precenter but I can assure you that more than likely you have more disposable income at hand than a homesteader. Yes they can go to a store near by but do you know what it would cost a family that size to eat with out a government subsity and just because you are to lazy to grow your own food or live off the land don't bash a family that is u can always change the chanel

    It's pretty evident that the Kilchers have chosen to ebrace the minalmist lifestyle of a homesteader and equally evident that they work extremely hard because that is the life of a homesteader. That doesn't mean they would not want the security of financial means if somehow their world were turned upside down. I had parents that grew up in the Great Depression who lived very simply despite having millions in net worth. You notice that the drama on ATNF is just the life itself. There are no staged fights or backstabbing plots in this show and that set's it apart from every other reality show I've seen. Money for some people is security, nothing more. If you're not able to see that in the Kiltcher's lifestyle, you're just not bright or can't imagine people not wanting to live like jet-setting celebrities & multi-millionares. They get their happiness from living a life they have chosen and they could most certainly afford to live otherwise if they wanted to.

    All our family watch ATLF. We choose it over many other tv shows. And we are fully aware there are one and two camera people along with sound people and other production people involved in the shooting of each episode of this show. But there is honesty and real life experience and respect in how this family treats each other and what they are attempting to teach the viewer as well. And perhaps it is as close to the Sunday evening Walt Disney Davy Crockett series of our youth as we will ever get in today's TV world. Where else can you see people who teach the value of hard work, family values, respect for the land and animals and a chance to see a lifestyle which many of us only dream of? Many of us have chosen to live such a life for an hour a week if only vicariously through the Kilchers. And for those naysayers on this site, net worth is not a reason to choose whether to watch a TV show. True entertainment is.

    I kinda have the feeling that once the wintersnows,etc, set in it may get a bit difficult to get to town. Don't know for sure cause I don't live there, but have been through the winters in the midwest and that is not nearly as far north as Alaska. And as to needing to fill the freezer. The cattle are a commodity and a business. If ya eat enough of your business, you no longer have one. And anyway. Who wouldn't want to eat Moose Bear, elk, smoked salmon, free range eggs from the chickens, etc. It sounds like a pretty realistic reality show and a family that knows the value of living off the land. Money is irrelevant. Sounds like a lot of jealousy has been poiuring out on this page in the comments.

    Great homestead family, people are to quick to criticize, cause what they do can't be faked. If you took away all the modern conveniences, the Kilcher's would have no problems surviving. Still I didn't realize Jewel was Atz's daughter until reading an Article about Atz Lee accident. It was fairly obvious from the start they weren't living in poverty and they choose this way of life.

    Unlike most of the "Reality" shows, this one always felt legitimate. Network doesn't have to fake it. Their riches don't come from the Millions in some banking account. As for Otto he would walk right pass a huge pile of money, if there was bigger pile of Junk further down the road. In his mind Paper money is good for 2 things (I'm sure you can figure it out)

    No, you are very wrong in your summation of their lifestyle. They live EXACTLY as the show depicts, not because they have to, but because they CHOOSE to. They love the land & want to live a sustainable lifestyle in order to keep Mother Earth wild, free, & beautiful, not overrun with subdivisions, killing all of our natural resources & killing our home (home being the planet we all live on). There is nothing FAKE about that. As far as Jewel saying she was homeless, she was. Yes, she could've gone back to the homestead, but she wouldn't have been able to become a famous singer/songwriter there. So, she & her mother moved to California & lived in their van because any money they made went into helping her make her dream come true. I don't understand everyone's need to "disprove" something, merely because that thing isn't what they "thought" it was. Your disappointment is all your own making, not theirs. They never once said that they HAD TO live the way they do. They do it out of respect for the land & out of respect for everything their dad/grandfather did in order to leave them the beautiful homestead they all live on. This is where really listening comes in handy.

    Wow, do you even WATCH the show, or are you just naturally dense? They say things like that because of the lifestyle they CHOOSE to live. They want to eat healthy foods that they grow & hunt/fish for themselves as opposed to the packaged foods sold in the grocery stores that are full of chemicals & nitrates. What's wrong with that? Grow up. If you don't like the show, don't watch it or come on the website & bash them. Also, my best friend lives in Homer & knows them. She says that they live exactly like the show depicts & that the entire family are truly nice folks that go out of their way to help others. Maybe you cold do with being a bit more like them, huh?

    But you have to realize that Otto was a master mechanic in Homer. They have no new equipment and most of the stuff they have is very old stuff that Otto has gotten for free or very cheaply and rebuilt it to make it run or function. All farmers and ranchers have to be pretty good mechanics in order to survive. Otto just happens to be a master mechanic…

    It's a great show and I love it. They have plenty of money but choose to live as they were raised and where they were raised. There veggies are organic and there meat is not processed so I'm sure there also pretty healthy too. The show itself is something that can actually teach a lot of people about survival. Very few people in this world have enough knowledge of survival without cell phones, computers, grocery stores and other "luxurys". More power to them I love the show and what it stands for !

    I enjoy the show, but would note that last week, Jane was moose hunting, shot a moose, and then said, "I don't even want to think about what would have happened if I didn't get a moose."
    On another episode, Eve went picking cottonwood buds for a home remedy. Then she said, being homesteaders, we can't just run to the store to buy this stuff.
    Both statements were probably written by the discovery channel shameless scoundrels.
    This family is nice. The discovery channel stinks.

    I would just like to know why on the show it is mentioned about the father/grandfather and how amazing he was. How strong he was and how he taught them so much but i don't hear them mention the mother/grandmother. She had to be just as strong and amazing and i am sure she had to have done her share of teaching her children things. I would just like her to get some credit for being a part of creating this wonderful homestead too.

Now that that is out of the way…if it is no longer interesting to watch then don't. But please stop crying. No one wants to hear it.

It shows what can happen when you dont let petty SHIT get in the way of actually LIVING. The world needs to take a good look at these people, instead of talking down about them. These people are a shining example of what you can do as a family and community. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

    Does it really matter how much of this reality show Is real and how much is scripted? We watch countless shows on TV that we know are nothing but A written script. Do we complain about those, not many. These people are actually having to do the work they show they are doing. I would rather watch this than half of the stupid stuff that the producers call entertainment for us, especially what they call adult swim. At least these people are showing you the real world and what it can be like if you choose to live in that environment. Maybe they get paid for their show but does really matter everybody has to make a living.

    LOVE Eivin and Eve’s sweet, supportive relationship and each’s recognition of the otger’s talents and hard work. SOOOO unlike Atz’s “My way or the highway’ treatment of Bonnie, expecting her to be a mind reader, criticizing her method of SCATTERING HAY SEEDS or stacking hay poles or the size she cuts the thousands of smoked salmon filets for canning;; Atz Lee’s total attempted domination over his hard working and multi-talented wife Jane, criticizing HER veg garden from one year and insisting she plant it exactly HIS way this year. Jane is game and tries hard to help everyone wherever she is needed but Atz Lee and especially her bitch-temper-throwing, constantly late, endangering others BECAUSE he is late, and SCREAMING uncle-in-law Otto who is always berating either his long suffering wife Charlotte and his nephew’s wife Jane for not being able to control a poorly trained (like all of Otto’s) horse CRAZY horse on a freezing 2day and LATE cattle drive, or loading steel girders into his barge BY HAND. Otto never apologizes and Jane has the guts to fight back and he tries to get away from facing his everyday rage by being horny, goofy, and what HE assumes is funny.

    Funny NOT funny how all the Kilcher sisters of Otto and Atz want no part of being on that show even though most live on the compound or near it. Funny NOT funny that first wives of both men left. Funny NOT funny that Atz let his underaged daughter live in a car in the north towns of the lower 48 so she could sing and play guitar at nights in pubs, coffee houses, and bars. I bet Atz and Otto sent their kids who flew the coop PLENTY of ‘subsistence money and supported them any way they could. And the older kids came back only after their fathers had re-married and taught some “how to treat your children” manners because Bonnie and Charlotte were sweet, welcoming step mothers who had somewhat tempered their husbands’ selfishness, hot tempers, and “my way or the highway’ attitudes. If I were Bonnie not hay-racking correctly, I would have thrown my pitch fork at Atz , yelled, “Stack your own damned hay, I’m not going to eat it!’, and walked back to the extra room Eivin added to the roundup cabin, locking it from the inside with some re-purposes piece of an 1884 steam engine after I’d brought a cot, blanket, pillow and shotgun in with me. (The cowboy cabin they named in honor of their deceased cattleman friend is the ONLY structure other than the rental cabins not to be so surrounded by junk that I hope baby Findlay and nice August have had their tetanus shots
    Jane suffers intensely through the aftermath of her husband’s near-death experience (because it was a fun trip Atz Lee HAD to make for his manhood,with no consideration that he might just 4 wheel himself right off that cliff in the dark of night, leaving himself paralyzed and depressed for the next 50 years while she changes his colostomy bags), or that this male bonding trip he HAD to take might leave her widowed and little kids to raise without a father. So a bear got him down by tearing up the northern cabin–that didn’t mean he had to start a NEW one 4 hours away from his home on a trackless bone jarring snow machine or four wheeler drive because he HAS “to have the peace and quiet” of a true one room hand built NEW cabin where his family will happily come live HIS dream, and that while building it alone and injured he could REALLY get himself killed or injured so badly that the wolves and bears could easily come eat him alive. Yeah, those kids and Jane are going to LOVE rising at 1AM and bouncing in the dark trackless downhill for 4 hours until they can catch their school bus, and of course giving up their own home andl lives having to live their father’s dream, the boys will quit school and strike out for Seattle too, and in 12 years (or 2) Atz Lee too will have HIS second wife.
    The utter selfishness of these 3 men is just galling.

      Well said. Otto and Atz Lee both claim to have taught their children to live off the land but in one episode after bragging about teaching them he takes his 20+ old son who says he has never hunted a deer?!? What…never hunted at all. Where did he grow up on the homestead?

    Why has no one helped Shane and his wife build a home? Shane seems to always be there to help others but no one helps them? What is up with that? Otherwise, love this show.

    Grubpubert… I understand his AND his wife Jane are already on their second marriages.
    And I agree instead of trying to build a new homestead, feel he should have helped Shane build his home instead and that would benefit Shane along with Atz Lee’s rehab.

    i do enjoy the show but you do have to admit some of the things they say aren’t very realistic. otto received his landing craft for free because it needed some work(hard to believe).now he shows up in a new small landing craft to check water depth to take 4 head of cattle to the head of the bay.then his friend shows up with another landing craft(not the free one) that otto owns to get the cattle up there. so in my opinion they never were low on income they just choose to live a subsistence lifestyle. but they could let off on the we’ll starve if we don’t get a deer or bear ect. it’s a great show but filling the freezer or die stuff needs to go away. no need to bitch about my opinion just don’t be so naive when watching the show.

    So you live off the land but have all the necessary tools although they appear to be old they do have a badge four wheelers boats trackhoes tractors welders cutting torchs and all kinds of guns and ammo not to mention horses and nice saddles hammers and nails
    Just all kinds of stuff I am sure given the same stuff and paid what they are paid I could do it to.

    I enjoy the show, I do often wonder where they get all their equipment. I’d love to have…lol. But I’ve no doubt they work very hard. Farm life is hard. I’d love to live on a homestead….only thing, ain’t no way I’m going without indoor plumbing and hot water, shower…. I know raising animals is a lot of work, but its very rewarding too. The only thing that I questioned was at first I thought they were really really remote, but they live very close to homer and civilization. Soooo the show does kinda fun a bit. But I admire their way of life. Its simple and real. But really, not doing the outhouse thing!!

    Why does Atz Lee treat Jane like dirt. He doesn’t care what she thinks. He must have hit his head real hard.

    Don’t feel too bad for them; the four families combined net worth is over 16 million $. They are by no means poor.
