Ah, the outdoor life. Country music fans know it well, even if they don’t actually live in the country. All they have to do is listen to one of these great country songs about hunters. These songs celebrate going out into the woods and tracking all manner of prey, including deer, duck, and doves. Before you hit the tree stand, grab these songs and make a great country hunting songs playlist!
When it comes to country songs about hunting, perhaps no one said it better than Hank Williams, Jr. in “A Country Boy Can Survive.” Since its release in 1982, this song has become an anthem for country fans everywhere – including hunters, who can “…skin a buck…and run a trout line” with ease.
Many country songs about going hunting are sentimental, too, as singers reminisce about spending time hunting with dads, granddads, sons, and daughters. Tracy Byrd’s “Mossy Oak Song (Pass it On)” is a prime example. In it, Byrd sings of his grandfather teaching him to love the land, and to pass it on for future generations. This list of country songs about going hunting also includes classics like “Shotgun Boogie” by Tennessee Ernie Ford, “Big Buck Fever” by Sam Moore and “Openin’ Day” by Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson.
