I remember seeing this show a few years ago. He built the cabin in one summer, all by himself, with hand tools. I especially remember the unique wooden hinges that he built for the door.

He hunted for all his meat with a semi-sporterized ‘03 Springfield, and kept the meat in a small elevated enclosure that you had to climb up to on a ladder. I suppose this was to protect it from bears and woves.

While we certainly enjoy our life in the middle of the Upper Peninsula’s Hiawatha Naational Forest, Proenneke really lived in a true wilderness isolation.
