Watch Last American Cowboy
- 1 Season
The Last American Cowboy follows the trials and tribulations of three family-owned cattle ranches in Montana. It focuses on the everyday struggles that they must face such as wildfires, storms and outbreaks that threaten the livestock. It also shows how these multi-generational families bond together to keep the tradition of ranching alive. Just outside of Stanford, is the 12,000 acre ranch of Scott and Stacey Hughes. Owned by Scott's father Tucker, this young family manages a herd of 500 Black Angus crossbred cattle single-handed. They rely on no outside help and even their three-year old son and nine-year-old daughter try to help. Besides the running of the ranch, this couple also has a hunting and recreational business that they run on the side. They believe in strong family values and good old-fashion hard work. Family values and ranching traditions are what are most important to Glenna and Earl Stucky. This is the way they have run their 20,000 acre ranch in Avon for the last 30 years. Still riding around on horseback, this family manages to oversee 3,000 head of cattle. Most everything is made by hand, all the way down to the haystack slides. All of the ranch work is done by family members and there is no outside hired help at all. The ranch supports five families and everyone chips in on the running of the ranch. The Galt ranch in White Sulphur Springs is the largest of the three and has been in the family for generations. This is one of the largest cattle ranches in the country and it is situated on well over 1,000 acres of land. Unlike the other two ranches that just raise cattle; this ranch has 5,500 cattle and 100 horses. This ranch is run by Bill Galt, his nephew Tyson Hill and an experienced crew of ranch hands.While Tyson is handling things on the ground, his Uncle Bill takes to the sky to keep an eye on things from above.
