Requirement #20 of the American Mountain Men

20. Must have made a study of the lifestyle of the mountain man, frontiersman or American Indian before 1840 and must submit a report of this study to the association Capitaine.

This requirement is optional for advancement to Bossloper and mandatory for the Hiveranno degree.

This is by far the most feared requirement of the Association. A paper report must be written based on your study of any facet of the life of the mountain men. This report will be submitted with your application for advancement. I would love to see these reports published in the Tomahawk & Long Rifle as well. That is strictly a volunteer proposition, but the information gleaned in one man’s study would be beneficial for all.

To advance to Bossloper, a man must complete requirements #1 & #2 plus at least 8 other requirements.

To advance to Hiveranno, a man must complete all 20 requirements. He does not have to repeat the requirements completed to attain Bossloper.
