In this episode of the Bear Hunting Magazine Podcast we drop in on the national expert on the history and culture of the Ozark Mountains, Dr. Brooks Blevins. He has written thirteen books on the topic so he knows his stuff. We went to Missouri State University to discuss how bear hunters, hillbillies & good ol' boys defined this region of North America. Bear hunters played a big role in the settling of this territory and in the words of Dr. Blevins, bear hunters were the "sports stars of their era." If you're looking for an interesting podcast this one is for you as it is one of the most interesting ones we've ever recorded!
