Ben Montgomery has lived his entire life in Missouri and started exploring the small strip of woods near his home as a young boy. His imagination was sparked by Disney’s Davey Crockett at the Alamo and school library books about the great explorers of the west. Les Stroud and the Survivorman series brought about a new interest in Bushcraft and documenting his wild treks. Ben is self taught with books and videos and practicing that new wisdom in the woods. Ben also has liberal views on politics and the world as a whole and enjoys expressing those views.
