Bear Swenson from "Ice Road Truckers" stars in the History Channel reality docu-series.

Bear Swenson is relatively new to the Arctic ice roads, making the jump north after spending most of his life in logging. Swenson earned the nickname "Bear" during his lumberjack days because of his resemblance to Smokey Bear but he also works as a professional bear hunting guide when not trucking the ice roads. Known for his sense of humor, Bear is quick with a joke or a little smack talk, but he's an easygoing guy who can take it as well as he gives it. Bear's good-natured, approachable personality has earned the respect of the locals, and though Bear can be critical of their rookie mistakes, he always looks out for the younger drivers. Proud of his two kids and seven grandchildren, he's in ice road trucking for the money, but is also motivated by taking care of his family.
