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.

#5 “A Country Boy Can Survive”
Hank Williams Jr

A lover, a dog, a rifle — those are the three things you need to survive. “A Country Boy Can Survive” is synonymous with Williams’ name. It was released as a single in January of 1982 and pays homage to the fact that country men and women are built of tough material — and they don’t care what you think.

“‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotgun / And we say grace, and we say Ma’am / And if you ain’t into that, we don’t give a damn,” sings Williams.

They can skin a buck and run a trotline … Can you?
