I have mad respect for any person, male or female who can eke out a living in those rugged environments. Tom Oar represents the real legit "Mountain Man" to me and you can really see the deep love and respect that he has shared with Nancy for such a long time and he's still going and carrying on his knowledge and he always has a smile on his face although he's as tough as an old boot. Eustace is a very innovative man for sure, but he can be quite critical towards less experienced people and sometimes downright disrespectful and he is somewhat on the creepy side for some reason! I hate the lion chasing and it bores the hell out of me. Last, but certainly not least is the Hawk family. I admire their determination and tenacity so much and as an avid knife lover and collector, I love to see Jason's talent on display - Mary is good at it too and she is a bad @ss Mountain woman for sure. Lots of love to the Hawk family during their struggles-John Bonia
