The Ways of Mountain Men Highlighted in “The Trail” Airing Now on Outdoor Channel

August 16, 2023

DENVER (August 16, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORSWIRE/ – Laramy “Sasquatch” Miller is tests his mountain survival skills on season two of The Trail, airing Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel. To do this, Miller rides his horse, “7,” into the most remote parts of the world to live off the land for 30 days or more.

Heading off into the woods alone might seem like a much-needed break, but it is a true test of grit, wit, and survival to Miller. “There’s a difference between wanting to do something like this and then actually doing it,” Miller shared with “Revolution Radio with Jim and Trav” recently. “It is so much work. Most people don’t want to work that hard. I grew up doing it, and yes, it is a whole different world living off the back of a horse.”

Miller’s family were mountain men. As he says in the first season of The Trail, now available on MyOutdoorTV, “It is bred into me. My family grew up in the mountains, and my uncle started filming his adventures and sold them on VHS tapes to Wal-Mart.”

Of course, Miller is not truly alone on the trail. He has his trusty horse, 7, and his packhorse, Jensen. In season two of The Trail, Miller heads to the panhandles of Idaho, one of the more remote spots in the lower 48. In 30 days, he traveled more than 200 miles with just a longbow, a few knife options, and 120 pounds of gear, 85 of which was camera gear.

When Jim and Trav asked Miller about one of his scariest moments on the trail during the radio interview, the story involved his horses. “When you are riding along the trail and suddenly your horse is on a shale rockslide – you realize you have no control. You must let that horse figure it out. I’ve had some crazy horse wrecks, and it has gotten close to a ‘Jesus, take the wheel’ moment. It is like driving a car on black ice. You just pray it will work out.”

Tune in to The Trail on Outdoor Channel to see horse wrecks, missed shots, and close calls Fridays at 8 p.m. ET.
