George Michaud

A mountain man to his very bones, Idahoan trapper George Michaud camps along the Snake River and in the majestic Tetons. He uses a traditional tepee of his own construction and design.

He has been devoted to the outdoors and to the Native American way of life since he was a boy, using centuries-old trapping and hunting techniques. George even discovered a method of trapping small game, known as the “promontory peg,” that was thought to have been lost to time. He will now begin another season of trapping in the Tetons, depending only on his wits and a team of skilled hunting dogs.

George is used to the dangers of a life in the wild, such as predators, illness and rough and unpredictable weather, but that doesn’t mean nature can’t still find a way to humble him.
