“In order to have success in nature, you’ve gotta get close to nature,” says Riley Green. His secret for finding deer, however, is a shocker.
All in all, The “If It Wasn’t For Trucks” singer had a very prolific quarantine everywhere from the duck blind and deer stand. Now, the avid hunter is sharing his tips for “finding the deer” – and it’s absolutely not what you’d expect.
“People are always askin me how I have so much success in the deer woods… well here y’all go,” the country music star posts to Twitter Thursday. Within, he shares a video you’ll have to watch to believe.
“In order to have success in nature, you’ve gotta get close to nature,” Green starts off as he relaxes on the ground. As fans will immediately note, the musician is petting an adorable tabby cat that seems beyond happy to be lying atop Green’s belly.
“This cat has seen every deer on this property. So I bonded with it, then we’re going to turn it loose and follow it… Figure out where the deer are at,” he reveals in the hilarious footage.
While Outsider definitely doesn’t recommend this as a form of deer stalking, we’re certainly recommending you give Riley Green’s video a watch below:
Riley Green: One of Country Music’s Most Prolific Hunters
When the world of concerts and live performances shut down, one Riley Green took to the outdoors as often as he could. All of us Outsiders did, as there was little else to do. Where else would we rather be, anyway?
Riley often shares his hunts on social media, too, with his followers absolutely loving the updates.
“Swipe to see a pretty blonde that got her first duck,” Riley Green posts in a previous hunting expose on Instagram. The blonde in reference, however, is not who you’d expect – just like his cat tactics from today. But oh, is the blondie a beauty.
Green also shares his hunting prowess on Twitter, as we see above. “Awesome hunt with a great bunch of folks,” he tweeted back in the worst throws of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Sporting camo and a mustache, the country crooner shows off his prize: a gorgeous 8-point buck.
None of this is anything new for Green, either. The country star grew up hunting with family and friends. It’s far more than a hobby for him. It’s a way of life.
“From the time I was a kid I always loved hunting and fishing,” he tells Southern Living. “There’s something about being out in the woods that just gets me. There are moments—like watching the sun come up in the middle of a swamp in Arkansas—I struggle to imagine how anybody wouldn’t enjoy that.”
Your fellow Outsiders absolutely agree with you there, Riley Green!
