Glenn Villeneuve Lifestyle
He is a subsistence hunter who loves simple way of life in Nature. Life Below Zero captures his lifestyle while he survives bone-chilling winter in one room cabin and beautiful summer while solely depending on hunting for food.
His meat supply depends on his lucky day. He usually hunts moose, caribou, sheep, and small game. Being a skilled fisherman too, he catches fishes in lake and creeks. He uses axe to cut woods in the Alaskan bushes to keep him warm and cook food.
Living in the wilderness isn’t an easy job when your only friends are wild creatures who wouldn’t mind taking a flesh from your body. Glenn once survived a pack of 20 wolves. He has a challenging lifestyle which leaves him even months without seeing a single human soul. During a Q&A Glenn opened he once survived without seeing a single person for four and half months.
During an interview, when asked, “What made you stick onto this lifestyle?” he described being an independent person who loves to explore nature even though he has to work harder.
“I’ve always been independent, and I really like the autonomy of being able to live in the wilderness by myself. I enjoy learning, and I continue to learn and explore more and more each year. It’s exciting to learn new skills and practice them. I also think the connection to nature is more real — I’d rather wake up in the morning and look out and see an owl in a nest, than look at it on TV. It’s been really rewarding for me, even if there’s a lot of work involved.”
There is no doubt Glenn loves to live in Alaskan Wilderness but if we look at some of the pictures he shared on facebook we would also want to be there enjoying the nature.
