Moonshine is making a comeback in Oklahoma, and the problem is even worse in the southern part of the state, according to the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission.



KOCO reports that the bootleg liquor resurrection is linked to a new TV show about moonshiners in Appalachia.

Authorities even recently found an “extremely large” moonshine still while searching the property of a 69-year-old man in Choctaw County, according to the Tulsa World.
