  1. Mountain Men is my husbands favourite TV show and I enjoy watching it too even though I’m not totally ‘countrified’. Hopefully you are planning on a season 6 ????

  2. For years my wife and I have really enjoyed watching Mountain Men. It is a series that is interesting and very enlightening. Please renew it and get it back on the air so we can enjoy seeing what these folks must do to survive in the wild. Thank you.

  3. I’ve been waiting for season 6 to start only to find it’s been put on hold. Please renew this program and I know that I speak for a lot of people who wish it’s return.

  4. Please you need to renew mountain men it’s a aawesome show. We love watching this program. Not many programs fit to watch on t.v.this is one of the good ones. Hope you renew soon. Thank you.

  5. Please renew Mountain Men for season 6 and hopefully beyond. This is a great family show which provides an insight to the challenges facing modern day mountain men and their families. The show is one of only a very few that my entire family looks forward to watching together. Please continue to uphold the quality of The History Channel and renew Mountain Men!!!

  6. Don’t renew Mountain Men. Doing so would imply that TV network executives have an ounce of common sense and actually pay attention to what viewers want to watch and enjoy with their families.

  7. In todays world, watching these people live honestly, hard working, and good tv, this show needs to be renewed. We need it!!

  8. Please renew Mountain Men. It is an excellent show! This is one of very few shows that I feel comfortable allowing my grandchildren to watch. It is very educational and shows the grandchildren the world beyond video games! My grandson is showing an interest in bow hunting because of this show.

  9. I respectfully request that you folks of the History Channel renew season six of Moutain men!

    This my favorite show on television and I always look forward to each episode as it airs each season. Moutain Men is a decent show for the whole family to watch and enjoy. Television already airs way too many immoral shows. Please don’t take away a rare show of decenty, quality morals and values!

    I grew up in the Rocky Mountains of Northern New Mexico and can relate to and how these men live to survive.

    I also ask that you feature Kyle Bell once again?

    Your consideration is greatly appreciated!

  10. We enjoy montain men, more then any other show .now we are watching reruns .don’t much care for Morgan.but please start it soon
    Love tom and Nancy.

  11. Please renew Mountain Men. This show is a show the whole family can watch and learn about what it takes to live in the wilderness. I would give it a five star rating. PLEASE RENEW !!

  12. I look forward to this show. It’s panoramic views of the wilds. It’s instructive, and enjoyable at the same time. These are true American pioneers, pull themselves up by the bootstraps. We need more shows like this for our youngsters to become self sufficient and independent. Please schedule this show.

  13. Omg I cannot believe History is not releasing season 6 of Mountain Men it is my husband and I most favourite programme. We have just finished season 5 and I went online to see when the new season was starting but I am shocked it has been put on hold. Is there a reason for this? Please bring it back. Thank you.

  14. My husband and I watch it together like many of these other people. When we found out it hadn’t been renewed , he said “figures, a show that everyone can watch and enjoy, they won’t put back on”. Who makes these decisions???

  15. Come on executives! Quit stalling and bring back the new season of Mountain Men! It’s one of the best shows on TV. I’m so sick of most of the network programming, I really look forward to a few favorite shows that aren’t like all the other run-of-the-mill shows! Mountain Men is great! Please approve and bring us the new season! Thank you!

  16. I have watched mountain men from day one. I look forward every week for it to come on. One of my favorite shows. On pins and needles now waiting for my show. Don’t disappoint me please.

  17. This is one of my favorite shows, and my girls love it too, they always want to trap like Marty and Tom please bring this show back we really miss it

  18. Please bring Mountain Men back as it is The Beast programe on History. It out strips all the rest. This is about People surviving of the land and making a living. Most enjoyable

  19. Please renew the Mountain Men show…. Followed it since it’s inception really enjoy it.

    If you gotta cur something in My opinion the Curse of Oak Island would never be missed in my world followed by Swamp people. The History channel figures most prominently in my TV lineup.

  20. Take a hard look at the programming on tv and you will see nothing worth much to watch. Mountain Men is worth watching by the entire family. I must have turned on a dozen people to this great entertainment. Give it another thought. Schedule season 6 to start soon.

  21. Please renew Mountain Men its a educational program and very honest and hard work, it shows our children the true value of teamwork, communications, honest hard work and family values.

  22. Please bring back Mountain Men series 6 this is the best History Channel programme ever. Real life people living off the land working hard for a living. Its a privilege to learn about the traditional methods used by Eustace, Tom and Nancy etc . Fantastic series deserves ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    Please renew as soon as possible.

  23. My husband and I both enjoy watching mountain men! Other reality shows are trash! This one is interesting and you can actually learn something. Please keep this show on tv!

  24. We love this program and please renew it and we would love to see a two hour show each week. Can’t get enough of it.
    Please notify me of the date this will return in 2019. Thank you

  25. My husband and I both love Mountain Men and would like to see it extended to two hours. We can’t get enough of it.

  26. This is the first time I sent a comment and I changed it once so what do I do? I gave you the exact thoughts we have.

  27. I dearly love this show, but reading that Tom and Nacy Oar have left is devastating. I know it is time for retirement, but he made this show. They were such wonderful people and I enjoyed his hunting and trapping and mostly the way he makes things. I hope you put the young fellow on that he was mentoring. He will carry on Tom’s mountian man ways.

  28. Mountain Men needs to have a regular spot on television. It is such a good show and many young people can learn from it.

  29. I watched all seasons several times! I love this show! I am especially fond of the participants and love to see them “live their dream”! Please keep me updated on the new season!

  30. Best show on TV and History Channel is dragging their feed on renewing it. Get someone in the History channel that knows what they are doing.
