Yukon Men is an American reality television series that premiered on Discovery Channel in 2012. The show follows the lives of several residents of the remote village of Tanana, located in the Alaskan wilderness, as they attempt to survive in one of the harshest environments on earth.

The main cast includes Pat Duke, a respected elder in the community who is known for his hunting and survival skills. Darren O'Hare, a former city-dweller who moved to Tanana to start a new life with his family. Bill Justice, a skilled trapper and outdoorsman who has lived in the area for decades and is intimately familiar with the local wildlife.

The show primarily focuses on the challenges faced by the villagers as they attempt to gather enough food and supplies to survive through the long, harsh winters. Hunting and trapping are a major focus of the show, with the villagers relying heavily on deer, moose and other wild game for food. They also frequently set traps for smaller animals, like rabbits, to supplement their diets.

Other challenges that the villagers face include extreme weather conditions, dangerous wildlife, and the lack of modern amenities like electricity and running water. Most residents of Tanana live in cabins that they have built themselves, and heat their homes with wood stoves.

Despite these challenges, the villagers of Tanana are fiercely independent and proud of their ability to survive in such a harsh environment. Family ties and community support are central to the lives of the villagers, with many working together to gather food or build new structures.

The show also highlights the importance of traditional Native Alaskan practices and beliefs in the lives of the villagers. Many residents of Tanana still practice subsistence hunting and fishing, and are deeply connected to the natural world around them. The show frequently features rituals and ceremonies that have been practiced in the area for centuries.

Yukon Men is a captivating and often thrilling look at life in one of the most remote and challenging places on earth. The show has been praised for its compelling characters and stunning cinematography, and is a must-watch for anyone interested in the outdoors or survival skills.

Yukon Men is a series that is currently running and has 7 seasons (64 episodes). The series first aired on August 24, 2012.
