The Florida frontier was a challenging environment for cattle and cow hunters, alike. And to prove it, just about every decade a bunch of rugged cattlemen and hearty greenhorns gather for an old fashioned cattle drive. WFSU’s Mike Plummer visits with Elam and Nic Stoltzfus to discuss their experiences shooting their latest documentary, The Great Florida Cattle Drive: Unbroken Circles.
Mike Plummer is a content producer and editor for television at WFSU Public Media. He spent 25 years in commercial television as an art director, commercial director, promotion manager, station manager and creative services director before coming to WFSU in 2008. Mike likes to find the “unusual” or “out of the ordinary” stories in our Local Routes. He says the best part of his job is getting to know people he would otherwise probably not get a chance to meet. Mike is widowed, has two terriers named Truman and Dexter, and is constantly at war with the vines growing in his backyard.
