Glenn Villeneuve from "Life Below Zero" stars in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series.

Glenn Villeneuve moved from Vermont to Alaska in 1999 after being inspired by the story of famed frontiersman Heimo Korth. Glenn lives as a lone, primitive subsistence hunter in the Brooks Range, surrounded by mountains 6000 ft. high. He is 200 miles north of Fairbanks, with a 60-mile walk to the nearest road. 

Glenn has truly left the modern world behind and has no wish to bring it into the wild. He lives in a sod house and has no power (except for a small generator), no running water, and no heat except from the wood he chops. He has batteries for his head torch and camera, nothing else. He travels and hunts by foot, chops wood with an axe, cuts through the ice with a hand chisel, hauls logs by hand with a sled. He lives 100% off the land, hunting moose, caribou, porcupine, ptarmigan and sheep. Glenn is surrounded by wolves, and has spent the last few months living in close proximity to a pack of twenty. Three times this winter he had to shoot dead wolves that were charging towards him. For sustenance, Glenn picks berries, roots and leaves, but is unable to grow his own vegetables because of the altitude at which he lives.  

Passionate about primitive living, Glenn has no need for left modern civilization and technology; everything he does comes from his own blood, sweat and tears.
