Atz Lee Kilcher from "Alaska: The Last Frontier" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Atz Kilcher's son, Atz Lee Kilcher, has always considered himself the "black sheep" of the family. Ten years ago he left the subsistence life on the homestead looking for a bigger and better life. Driven by his passion for music he roamed the country with his guitar until he one day realized that the homestead was his home. He rejoined the family on the homestead, built a cabin by hand and hasn't left since.

Unlike his uncle Otto, he relies solely on hunting to supply his family with meat. Atz Lee admits that there are huge risks to this lifestyle, but sees it no other way. He understands that the hardship he goes through in the wilderness is the trade-off — never again wanting to experience the life he once sought in the lower 48 behind a desk.

"The wilderness is where I belong," he explains. No matter how much the outside world tries to lure him in, he'll always end up back in the woods leading a subsistence lifestyle the best he can. His time away, however, cost him dearly. He feels that he's in a constant race against the clock in order to provide his family with enough food for the winter months, and has failed a few times when they had to rely on others to help. These failures, however, make him a better hunter and provider than before. "Struggling through a single Alaskan winter is the best cure for laziness in the fall," he explains.
