Education and early life

Not much is known about Tom’s early life ,as he’s decided to keep his personal matters to himself. He grew up in Illinois alongside his father Chike Oar who was also a TV personality as he appeared in several US Wild West TV shows earlier in the 20th century – Tom hasn’t talked about his mother and hasn’t mentioned having any siblings which is why most of his fans believe Tom to be an only child.

Tom Oar

Tom had a rather normal childhood but has been in love with nature since a very early age – motivated by his father, he immersed himself in activities in nature, and learned how to use various tools. He went on to attend high school, and after he matriculated he found a job, and decided not to enroll at college.

Tom’s life in the nature

It was at the beginning of the 1970s that Tom decided to leave the comfort of modern civilization as he moved to live in Montana’s Yaak river valley. He was already married at that point, and his wife agreed to the move – before this giant step, Tom was competing in numerous rodeo tournaments, but it is not known if he had managed to win any.

He began combo riding soon after he matriculated from high school, and was doing it for years, however, as his health was in danger, he had to stop with this activity. The married couple began living in the woods, where they built their house completely out of wood more than 50 miles away from any food stores – as the two have explained it, they don’t need grocery stores as they hunt and grow their own food. They also earn money by making clothes such as shoes and jackets which they sell when they go to the city (which is not that often) – the people seem to be very satisfied with the things they make as they have begun ordering things from them in advance.

Tom might not have gone further than high school, but is nevertheless considered to be one of the best skin and hide tanners in the US. While Tom was living this life for quite a long time, he did not gain recognition until he was invited to become part of the “Mountain Men” reality TV show. He was made part of the main cast, and appeared alongside Eustace Conway, Marty Meierotto, Rich Lewis, and Jason Hawk amongst other people who are also living their lives in nature. The show follows the everyday lives of its cast members – its first episode aired on 31 May 2012 on the History Channel.

Love life and wife

Tom has kept details of his love life hidden from the public but being an important part of the “Mountain Men” show, some things about his family are still known. Tom met his wife Nancy Oar soon after he matriculated from high school, and the two were dating for several years before deciding to exchange their wedding vows. As both of them were big nature lovers, and were thinking about starting a family, they agreed that they didn’t want to raise their children in any city and therefore moved to live in the woods. Nancy gave birth to three kids throughout the years – named Chad, Jack, and Keelie Oar – while there is not much known about them, all three have been homeschooled.

Tom hasn’t mentioned any other women he might have dated before Nancy, and she appears to be his first love.

Likes and other interests

Tom was interested in education as he was growing up, but eventually decided to rather focus on other things. He enjoys living in the woods where he doesn’t have a TV, and hasn’t even watched any episode of the “Mountain Men” in which he has appeared – he does have a radio, and listens to it when he has nothing smarter to do.

He enjoys hunting animals in the woods, and believes it is stupid to have more of anything than a man needs – this is why he never stocks up on meat and doesn’t kill more than necessary for his wife and children. Although he has never been to a gym nor been very interested in any sports, Tom still has an athletic figure thanks to being physically active every day – although he is around 76 years old, he still has more stamina than many teenagers. In conclusion, Tom is a big lover of nature who prefers to spend his time with his family away from the city’s (and other people’s) noise.
