Tom started getting involved in the rodeo circuit from a very young age – His father was heavily involved in rodeo which led to him pursuing the same field. He took care of livestock, did bull fighting, and was also a pick-up man. However, the job was dangerous and soon his health was deteriorating. He also received permanent damage to his legs due to the dangers of the career, so he eventually left and focused on working as a tanner. Most of his skills have been self-taught, and soon his popularity would increase as well as his net worth. However, with the fur industry starting to wane, the demand for tanners also started to increase. This struggle would eventually lead him to become a part of “Mountain Men”.

“Mountain Men” follows a group of people who live off the land in remote areas of the US. Oar was introduced to the show through a friend, and then started being featured living near the Yaak River in northwestern Montana. The series shows his struggles and efforts to prepare for a seven month winter season, along with his family and neighbors. Other cast members of the show include Eustace Conway, Marty Meierotto, Rich Lewis, George Michaud, Charlie Tucker, Kyle Bell, and Morgan Beasley, who are from various places around the US. Oar has been heavily featured since the first season in 2012 and up to its latest season in 2016, and so has appeared in a total of 69 episodes of the show, in which he’s seen trapping animals and working at his tanning craft. Since appearing in the show, his tanning business has started to boom, and according to him he even has difficulty keeping up with the number of orders he receives now. His net worth increased significantly thanks to the success of “Mountain Men”.

For his personal life, it is known that Tom has been married to Nancy for more than 20 years. They have a dog, and are often all seen together in “Mountain Men”. The two initially lived together for 17 years without any running water or electricity. They’ve known each other since the latter part of Tom’s rodeo career. He was a part of the rodeo circuit along with his father and brother, but he stayed in it longer than any of them. He rode bulls for more than 18 years and broncos for more than 25 years.
