Top 10 Country Songs About Hunting and Fishing
By Christina Vinson
Hunting and fishing go hand in hand with country music, country boys and country girls. As anyone who’s hooked a big bass or displays a deer head above their mantle knows, the wait is worth it. But, whether you’re wearing camo and sitting in a rickety tree stand or relaxing out on the water in a rickety fishing boat, you need some good mood music (in your headphones only! Don’t want to scare the animals away …). Hunting and fishing songs are a dime in a dozen in country music, but there are several that stand out — and we’re in love with the following 10 tunes hook, line and sinker.
Paisley sure knows how to make fans laugh, and “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song)” does just that. The tune is about a guy who’s been given an ultimatum by his girlfriend: her or fishing.
His response? “Well, I’m gonna miss her / When I get home / But right now, I’m on this lakeshore / And I’m sittin’ in the sun / I’m sure it’ll hit me / When I walk through that door tonight / Yeah, I’m gonna miss her / Oh, lookie there, I’ve got a bite.”
