I might be moving to Bozeman but I am curious about what type of people live there...I have heard it is kind of a "cowboy" town. Is it true that Bozeman is full of hicks? Also are there a lot of religious people? On another forum, someone posted that there are lots of Christians..true or false? Also, what is Bozeman like? Thanks!

I guess I don't understand what it is you are asking. Cowboy is an occupation, not a mode of dress. 99.99% of the Cowboys live out on a ranch, not in Bozeman. To insinuate that cowboy = hicks is pretty derogatory toward ranchers and a time honored profession.

I'm not Christian, but being Christian isn't so bad either.

So you might want to rephrase the questions so we understand what you are looking for or what you are asking.

Not meaning to be offensive. I guess what I mean by hick is people who just want to go "muddin" and listen to country music. Does that help?

The way to find out what people are really like in a town is to go there and meet them.

As an example, here are some videos of people in Bozeman.

If by muddin you mean mud racing, you have to live in a state that is wet enough to have mud.
Montana is very dry. I think mud racing is more of a southern states hobby. I actually had to look up the definition, as I'd never heard of it before.

Bozeman is one of the more diverse towns in the state since MSU is in town. I don't know the percentage, but I would venture to guess most of the people there were not born and raised there.

You'll find people who like country music and go 4-wheeling (probably our version of "muddin"). You'll also find plenty of Christians.

But like every other city of any size in Montana, you'll find lots of other types of people as well. It's big enough that almost anyone can find others with similar interests and lifestyles.

False, Bozeman is one of the least religious towns in one of the least religious states. I've lived in New York and Maryland, and Bozeman was far more irreligious than either. Also, over 50% of the city holds a college degree making it one of the more well-educated towns in the country. Not many hicks in Boz Angeles.
