The pair has been living in a remote area of Montana’s Yaak Valley, where they make a living from tanning hide. They also create traditional buckskin moccasins, shirts, pants, and jackets.
Well, Tom and his wife enjoy the net worth of $200 thousand. However, when Tom was asked once about how the show has changed his life, he said-
“The show hasn’t changed me so far to any great degree. I do get more orders than I ever have before. I could never keep up with all the business we’ve got in the past year. When we make a jacket or a buckskin pair of pants, it’s all hand-sewn. We don’t use a sewing machine.”
Tom's age may be seventy years old, but he seems to be very energetic and healthy. You will be surprised if we will tell you that Tom and Nancy lived their first 17 years in the west without any electricity or running water.
Today, the pair lives only fifty miles from the nearest grocery store. Tom and Nancy decided to move to a remote area of Northwest Montana when Tom was thirty-five-years-old, and Nancy was thirty-years-old.
Talking about their plans to move out to the remote woods to American Cowboy, Tom said-
“There came a point in our life where we figured the majority of rodeoing was over, and we wanted to move to Montana and build a log house. So we bought a chainsaw in Illinois to build a house with when we got here.”
Now, Nancy seems to be very worried about her husband and herself, as they are not young anymore. She is also concerned that they have to give up their lifestyle and move to Florida with their kids.
