How Bear Hunters & Hillbillies Defined a State

How Bear Hunters & Hillbillies Defined a State

Bear Hunting Magazine Podcast  / 

Posted on March 18, 2020

Show Notes

Dr. Books Blevins is the national expert on the history and culture of the Ozark Mountains and he's written thirteen books on the topic. We went to Missouri State University to discuss how bear hunters, hillbillies and good ol' boys defined the region. As it turns out, bear hunters played a big role it, and according to Dr. Blevins, bear hunters were the "sports stars of their era." This is one of the most interesting podcasts we've ever recorded!
