A Longhunter or long hunter (both are correct) was a 1700s explorer and hunter who made expeditions
into the American frontier wilderness for as much as six months at a time.
"The Long Hunter was peculiar to Southwest Virginia. Most long hunts started in the Holston River Valley near Chilhowie, Virginia."
The hunters came from there and the adjacent valley of the Clinch River,
They were land owners or residents.
The parties of two or three men, usually started their hunts in October.
The area they hunted is now Kentucky and later they would move into the Ohio Valley.
They would also venture into the Carolina's.
