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.
Anyone who loves hunting can relate to Turner’s “Backwoods Boy.” He describes waking up at 5AM, putting on his camo, wiping off his .243 and firing up his Dodge. It’s a familiar scenario for all hunters, and when they hear Turner sing, “If I’m here eight hours from now / It’ll be okay, yeah,” every hunter nods along.
