History of the Hunt

History of the Hunt

A podcast about the history of the hunting culture in America and beyond. Outdoor writer and historian Keith Crowley interviews experts and discusses prominent hunters, great outdoor writers, and the important conservationists of the past.Think Teddy Roosevelt, think Ernest Hemingway, think Aldo Leopold. Or maybe George Bird Grinnell, Robert Ruark, and Sig Olson. Let's not forget about Phillip Percival, Gordon MacQuarrie, and Ding Darling. Modern hunters owe those people, and a long list of their contemporaries, a debt of gratitude for the many opportunities we have today... and that's our focus. Produced by /Lodge Trail Ent., LLC. Theme music "Grip of the Black Gold" by Steve Blexrud and Thunderheads. Used by permission: https://www.thunderheadsmusic.com/store.html... Show More

  • Host Keith Crowley interviews publisher, editor, and writer, Steve Smith, about his close friend Gene Hill and their adventures hunting - and writing - together.
  • Hill's words about hunting dogs were the best and may be in part the result of Hill's WWII experiences.
