Where is George Michaud Now?

George Michaud grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado and learned the basic survival skills from his mom to survive in the wild. During his childhood, he used to go trapping with his uncle and lay traps for beavers. From then, he developed an interest in being a trapper in the mountains.

After completing high school, Michaud started trapping in the North Park with his friends and spent most of his time in the wild. In 1987, while on a dog sled tour out of Jackson, Wyoming, Dave Wescott invited him to take some classes at Boulder Outdoor Survival School (BOSS).

The Untold Truth of Mountain Men

After a few months, George moved to Idaho to teach classes at BOSS and attend an annual event, Rabbit Stick, which he has never missed. At the event, Michaud often teaches brain-tanning, leather working, winter survival skills and dog sledding. He owned and operated a dog sled touring business, 4 Paw Power, in Driggs, Idaho, from 1989 to 1994.
