Hunting Is A Favorite Adventure Sport

Taking after their parents, the Raney family members are expert hunters, but among them, Matt is the specialist. Misty is the couple's youngest child and is married to Maciah, a carpenter and surfer. The couple is parents to a five-year-old son.

Misty goes on a family hunt every season with her brother Matt. She loves the various aspects of being a hunter, whether it's dressing up a fresh moose kill or fishing.

Melanee is married to Ari Stiassny, with whom she has three children. The adventurous couple's son Miles Raney works at NSTI as a technician.

The Story of Mollee's Agonizing Pregnancy

Mollee has revealed that her first pregnancy with daughter Melanee was agonizing. Mollee's water broke in the middle of nowhere, and there were no hospitals or doctors nearby. 

The couple was afraid of the threat to their baby's life. They managed to take an emergency flight to Whitehorse in Yukon Territory, and Melanee was born just as the plane was touching down!

Marty hails from North Bend, Washington. He left home at the tender age of 16 to pursue bigger and better things in life. In 1974, at the age of 18, he made his way to Alaska. It didn't take long for him to devote himself to living off the ground, culminating in his rise to fame on television over the years.
