Old Mountain Hunter: Ora Lee Provence

Old Mountain Hunter: Ora Lee Provence

Bear Hunting Magazine Podcast  / 

Posted on March 14, 2019

Show Notes

This is one of the most unique podcasts we’ve ever recorded and I doubt we’ll ever duplicate it. Ora Lee Provence was born in 1927 in Crawford County, Arkansas and has made a living off the land his whole life – currently he’s 91 years old and still lives in the same hollow in which he was born. On this podcast we’ll hear about Ora’s life growing up in the rural Ozarks Mountains and his early introductions to hunting. He talks about his methods of deer hunting in the Ozarks. We’ll also hear about his incredible season in 1965 when he harvested two bucks off public land, one scored 165” and the other 186” and had double droptines!

Ora and his wife Mary tell some incredible stories. Also, Mrs. Mary tells her favorite way to cook deer meat and the best way to freeze sweet corn so you can eat it all year. Be sure to check out Bear Hunting Magazine at and use code BHM5 for $5 off a one-year subscription.
