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

Otto Kilcher ("Alaska: The Last Frontier") lives on the family homestead on East End Road in Homer, Alaska. He ranches and operates a boat transportation service. The Kilcher family has a long and colorful history around the Homer area. Otto raises hay and cattle on the homestead and sits on the Kenai Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area Council and is an active member of the Kenai Peninsula Farm Bureau.

Born in 1952, Otto was the sixth of eight children born in Alaska to Yule and Ruth Kilcher. After growing up on the homestead, Otto immediately took to a life of raising cattle and running the farm.

A master mechanic and machinist, Otto prides himself on being able to fix anything that breaks down on the homestead. Decades of collecting broken down machinery and fixing it by had has allowed him to acquire hundreds of pieces of equipment that he and the rest of the homestead have at their disposal to help achieve any task they may have — from haying the meadows to plowing the deep snow.

Years ago, Otto relied on hunting for his family's meat supply, but a deep love of the wildlife led him to focus on raising cattle for their needs.
