Bear hunting Tennessee Mountain Style

 

 

In the fall of 1825, Davy Crockett, who was born in Southeast Tennessee, was busy at work building two large boats. According to his narrative of the account, he waited until the fall when the black bears were putting on fat before going to den for the winter.

 


Soon, he had killed enough bears to sustain himself and his family for the winter. However, one of his neighbors had come to his house and asked him to go hunting with him because he knew of a place where the bears were plentiful and fat for the winter.
 

 

They were joined by other hunters and together they all went hunting Tennessee black bear using their hunting dogs. All the hunters went home with plenty of bear meat to feed their families.
 

 

At the conclusion of his narrative about his bear hunting he says this: "As soon as the time come for them to quit their houses and come out again in the spring, I took a notion to hunt a little more, and in about one month I killed forty-seven more, which made one hundred and five bears I had killed in less than one year from that time." (Source: http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/5816/). During those times no meat was wasted and was shared with those in need.
 

 

In early 1836, Crockett took part in the Texas Revolution and was killed at the Battle of the Alamo in March.

 

Our bear hunting style hasn't changed too very much since Davy Crockett went bear hunting in the mountains of Tennessee.
