      “Lips Like A Mazaratti,” Ted Nugent. 😛 sorry just kidding.
      I often find myself humming “Brown Sugar” Rolling Stones, while hunting. Always seems to be some old song “stuck” in my head, same verse over and over, as I sneak along. Drives me nuts but I accept it as part of the mental derangement of being in rut. dave

      I seem to hum “Chicken Fried” by the Zac Brown Band!?!?!? Don’t know exactly why, its a good song, but it just doesn’t seem “bowhunty” enough, lol

      :lol::lol: I laughed hysterically when I read that.

      This is gonna sound funny, ironic, and convoluted considering what I’ve said about Nugent, but I’ve listened to it so many times over the years and it’s probably partially nostalgic, but mine is “Fred Bear” by Nugent.

      I’m still laughing Dave! 😆

      in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict” by Pink Floyd :twisted::shock::D

      Nimrod Neurosis,Gray Days,Feathers Thru the Wind. I guess the whole CD by Mark Baker. Everytime I listen to the CD it takes me back to Montana and there is no place I’d rather be.

      I sing “Funky Town (Won’t You Take Me To)” from the top of my lungs as loud as I can, while on the stand. This may be why I have yet to get a shot at a deer while in NH. 🙂

      My music choices change depending on the circumstances. On the way hunting its “The Call of the Wild” by Chris Ledoux. If im stuck in the bottom of a canyon alone with an elk down or stuck doing honey do’s instead of hunting its the “Gloom Despair and Agony” song from HEE HAW…LOL

      Favorite bowhunting song … ? Definitely, “Bowhunter Do or Die” by Jim Bowman. 😀

      Is it weird that mine is the Chili’s Baby Back Ribs song, you know, “I want my baby back, baby back, baby back,) over and over. Man, now it’s in my head.

      On another note, going hunting tonight, will let you all know how it goes.

      I guess if I have to think about it long it means I don’t have a specific one for bowhunting.
      But I love me some Allman Bros and “Dunky Town” might work cause thats where I’m going after the hunt. (Its “Funky” for all ya’ll, but “Dunky” for me):D
      Hmmm, I’m just liable to change my screen name to Dunky……

      You can’t go wrong with the Allman Brothers but if i had to pick one it would probably be Hybernation by Ted Nugent. It’s just an instrumental but i hum the tune to myself alot while i am hunting.:twisted:

      I’ve had several, mostly Mr. Baker’s or Mr. Slagle’s but as I feel my age more it’s “Try Again” by Mark Baker—long as i can pull my bow…

      “thirdy point buck” by the Uppers. Not sure how to spell Uppers but it is pronounced Yewpers as people from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are called.

      Thanks Patrick. I just looked out my window and saw a four pointer with two does walking in the woods next to my house.:D

      I’m with Patrick. Last year, the morning I shot my buck (rifle season), I listened to “Fred Bear” before leaving the house, and ironically enough, when I got to where I shot my buck, I felt like I needed to stick around for a little bit. Lo and behold, out of the private property brush came the deer, and up onto the state-owned stuff I was hunting he came. Almost to within bow range, had I had my bow. Was a good day, but a long tiring drag back to the truck. Roughly 2 miles, very little downhill, and basically a dry dirt road, all to get a forkie-horn home. And the kicker to the whole she-bang…I cut fresh-since-I-passed elk tracks on my way back to the truck. LOL!!

      Michael.

      Poncho and lefty by Townes V Zandt
      or
      Gortoz a Ran – J’Attends” by Dinez Prigent

      Neither are really hunting songs per se but they get my hunting motor going

      The soundtrack to Last of the Mohicans. I think it’s the 1st track – Drums Along the Mohawk, that is as good a sonic rendition of mythic wild places that I can imagine.

      I don’t have the music to this yet, but here you go written by me.

      Parody of Garth Brooks’ song “Rodeo”

      “Recurve Bow” by Jon Erdmann

      His eyes are cold and restless
      September 4th is almost here
      And she’d give half of Montana
      Just to chase away the bear, elk and deer.

      Well she knows his love’s in the woods
      And she knows he’s gonna go
      Well, it ain’t no woman, flesh and blood
      It’s that danged old recurve bow.

      Well its trails of blood
      It’s tracks in mud
      It’s finding a tree in the dark
      It’s his knees when they buckle
      Or the pounding of his knuckles
      When his shot misses the mark.
      It’s aerial maps,
      It’s arrow wraps,
      The bear fur rest, you know
      It’s the simple things
      And the arrow when it sings,
      And they call the thing a recurve bow.

      She does her best to hold him
      When his thoughts turn to fall
      But his need for the outdoors controls him
      And her backs against the wall.
      And its “So long, girl, I’ll see you”
      When its time for him to go.
      You know the woman wants her husband
      Like he wants his recurve bow.

      Well its trails of blood
      It’s tracks in mud
      It’s finding a tree in the dark
      It’s his knees when they buckle
      Or the pounding of his knuckles
      When his shot misses the mark.
      It’s aerial maps,
      It’s arrow wraps,
      The bear fur rest, you know
      It’s the simple things
      And the arrow when it sings,
      And they call the thing a recurve bow.

      It’ll drive a hunter crazy.
      It’ll drive the man insane.
      And he’ll sell off everything he owns
      Just to pay to play the game
      And a broken home and some mounts at home
      Is all he’ll have to show
      For the years he spent chasing
      That wildlife with his recurve bow.

      Well its trails of blood
      It’s tracks in mud
      It’s finding a tree in the dark
      It’s his knees when they buckle
      Or the pounding of his knuckles
      When his shot misses the mark.
      It’s aerial maps,
      It’s arrow wraps,
      The bear fur rest, you know
      It’s the simple things
      And the arrow when it sings,
      And they call the thing a recurve bow.
