2. Grizzly Adams
Contrary to what Shooter McGavin thinks, Grizzly Adams did have a beard. The original Mountain Man, John “Grizzly” Adams was best known as a tamer and trainer of grizzly bears, hence the nickname. There is some debate about his legacy (and even his real name), but one thing is not debatable—his feral, yet impressively groomed, man-beard. Fun fact: Dan Haggerty, who portrayed Grizzly Adams in both film and TV (seen in the photo here), gained some dubious fame in 1977 when his beard caught fire while allegedly drinking a flaming drink of sorts. Be careful, ye bar-going bearded hipsters.
