Raised in Dorchester, Boston, Zuray’s family faced poverty during the ‘50s and ‘60s, so his father had to work several jobs to make ends meet. During his adolescence, Stan faced crime and under-stimulated peers in his hometown, who spent their time stealing cars and selling drugs. He described Boston as a very lonely place and admitted he took part in some criminal activities which he isn’t proud of, and that made him leave and settle in Alaska.
There, Stan had to learn how to survive in much harder circumstances with near death experiences along the way. Since then, he has adapted to the life in the wilderness. He has trapped wolves, hunted all kinds of other wild animals, and faced a grizzly attack more than once. Today, he resides in the tiny village of Tanana on the Yukon River in Alaska, 60 miles from the Arctic Circle. Zuray even held the record for the fastest amateur time in the Iditarod dog sled race. However, what made him famous is the popular reality TV show called “Yukon Men”. Stan was contacted by Paper Route Productions who were looking for hunter people in Alaska to hire them as participants of their new show. After sending several pictures of his everyday life in Tanana – population of only 200 people – the producers decided they wanted him on the show. The series quickly took off, and gained its popularity by detailing the lives of this little town’s inhabitants, what they do to make their living and dealing with topics such as survival and community. Its reception with the public was mostly positive and brought Stan popularity and a significant net worth increase. He has been on the show since 2012, and his son Joey also joined the cast. With more than 40 years of experience in the Alaskan wilderness, Zuray became a real television sensation – in numerous interviews, Stan claims that he has so far learned to survive and fight for himself, although it is hardly ever easy.
When it comes to his private life, Zuray married Alaskan native Katelin Zuray and the couple has three children. In April 2017 Stan published an autobiographical book called “Carry On: Stan Zuray’s Journey from Boston Greaser to Alaskan Homesteader”.
