Martha Tansy from Mountain Men

Martha Tansy

In the mountains of Southcentral Alaska lives Martha Tansy, a single mother and designated hunter of the native Athabascan people who inhabit the region. Martha and her daughter Elli are responsible for harvesting wild game that their native community depends on to survive. A life spent exploring the wilderness and five years in the U.S. Army prepared Martha with the outdoor survival and sharpshooting abilities required for the job. Elite off-road driving and mechanic skills allow Martha to venture deep into the backcountry in pursuit of moose, caribou and other big game. The harsh environment, weather and predators put her skills and grit to the test every day, but with so much at stake, Martha refuses to back down no matter what the bush throws her way.
