Mountain Men Youren

Kidd and Harry Youren

Beneath the glacier-carved peaks of the Sawtooth Range live brothers Kidd and Harry Youren—the last in a long line of frontiersmen stretching back to the pioneer days. Born and raised in the wilds of Idaho, the Yourens are committed to spending their lives in the mountains by any means necessary. But to hold onto a lifestyle that’s fast disappearing, it takes a Jack of all trades. In any given season, they can be found far from civilization clearing trail, running cattle, navigating whitewater, hauling supplies or hunting down meat to fuel all of the above. It’s a life beset with toil and danger, but the Youren brothers wouldn’t have it any other way.
