Early Life:

Marty Meierotto was born in February 1960 in Foxboro, Wisconsin, United States. He is the son of  Thomas T. Meierotto and Karen Meierotto. Marty grew up in northern Wisconsin alongside his siblings Jeff Meierotto and Steve Meierotto where he picked the traits of trapping from his professional father.

At the age of seven, Marty had his first trapping experience as he joined Thomas to check a trapline set outside their house. Marty kept trapping as he grew up which turned into a professor. Although Marty did attend school he did not achieve higher education and Marty became a logger. With the declining number of animals among growing trappers,  Marty decided to move away from his hometown. During that time many young lads from his hometown moved to Alaska seeking job opportunities. Marty and his brother Jeff Meierotto also moved to Alaska in 1985.


After moving, Marty did different old jobs in Fairbanks, Alaska as a Janitor, a logger, and a construction crew for a few years. He would use the money for food, tools, and tents and would go on trapping during his free time.

Marty never gave up on his dream of living off the land and built a one-room cabin in the Alaskan wilderness. In the hunting season, he would spread out the trap line 200 miles away from human civilization where the temperature dropped 30 to 40 degrees below zero. The fur obtained from trapping such as Lynx would sell in the market. Marty also became a member of the Alaska Trapper Association. 

In the summers Marty worked as a wildland firefighter for Chena Interagency from 1988 to 1993. He started working as Alaska Smoke Jumper in 1994 and after more than two decades he switched to his dream job of flying. He became a BLM pilot for Alaska Fire Service in 2015 and after five years he took retirement from the job.
