Country Stars Get Fired Up for Hunting Season

For Luke Bryan, country star and Buckman, it started at the age of 5—when he went on his first hunt. That’s when his passion for the great outdoors was cultivated. When he harvested his first deer with his dad at the age of 13, it sealed the deal.

Since then, Luke has befriended and frequently hunts with Buck Commander and Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, as well as pal Jason Aldean, who is also a Buckman. In fact, Luke and Jason have tweeted photos of their tattoos bearing the Buck Commander logo. They are ate up with it! And recently Luke went the extra mile—or acre—and purchased a large plot of land for future hunting opportunities.

Newcomer Tyler Farr hopes to follow Luke’s lead. He tells Country Weekly, “I was talking with my business manager, who was saying, ‘Next year we need to talk about where you’re looking to move and what kind of house you’re looking at.’ I said, ‘House? I ain’t getting no house. I’m waiting to buy about 300 acres and I’m going to find the exact land I want and I’m going to put a double-wide on it.’ That sounds rather strange to some, but I’m going to do that so I can have my land that I want, and when I have enough money, I’ll build a house right there. And when my parents come to visit, they can stay in my fancy double-wide.”

The land is, of course, for hunting.

Country music and the great outdoors naturally go hand in hand. So it’s no surprise that if you want to engage a country star in a great conversation, talk to them about hunting, fishing, skiing, surfing, hiking or camping.

And it isn’t exclusive to the fellas! Miranda Lambert is just one of many females in country music who knows her way around a deer stand.
