Illinois hunting and fishing

Add your favorite song to our outdoors playlist

January 03, 2012 at 07:20 PM

The State Journal-Register

The first call to build the perfect outdoors playlist brought out some interesting selections.

Who knew there were songs titled: “Weapons of Bass Destruction,” or “Duckaholics Anonymous?”

Not all the songs are silly, and not all deal with hunting and fishing.

Some highlight the power of nature. Some celebrate the beauty of the great outdoors.

For your entertainment and musical education, here are a few of the tunes suggested by Prairie State Outdoors readers.

I’ve included a YouTube video if I could find a decent one.

Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments field. .

A link to the first list, intended to jumpstart the process, can be found below.

Josh Turner
Backwoods Boy

Tracy Byrd
Pass It On

Steve Conover
Duckaholics Anonymous

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Fishin’ In The Dark


Dallas Davidson

John Denver

Brad Paisley

Lets not forget the epic “The Ol Diamondback Sturgeon"from Primus.

Oh,yeah, there’s also “Fish on” by Primus from the album “Sailing the Seas of Cheese”.A good fishing trip is always worth a song.

‘The Pickup Truck’ song by Jerry Jeff Walker on his “Live At Gruene Hall’ album. Not really about the outdoors but a great tribute to all the old trucks that get the job done!
