Craig Morgan has a pretty impressive resume. Most country music fans remember when he hit the scene back in 2000. Since then, he’s dropped seven studio albums and two greatest hits compilations. Hits like “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” and the chart-topper “That’s What I Love About Sunday” made him a favorite among the genres fans. However, that’s not the end of the story. He has also worked in TV and films. Morgan appeared in an episode of Rizzoli and Isles as well as several made-for-TV movies. He also hosted his own hunting show called All Access Outdoors.

Craig Morgan’s All Access Outdoors ran for eight seasons on the Outdoor Channel. However, he didn’t stop hunting when his show ended. He just has to work it in around performing and all of the great charity work he does. It looks like Morgan cleared his calendar to log some time in the woods this fall. Not long ago, he posted a video from his tree stand while waiting on a whitetail to come through. Yesterday, Craig shared a photo posing with a massive bull elk he harvested on a recent hunt. Check out the pic of the proud hunter and his hefty query below.

Craig Morgan kept the photo’s caption short, sweet, and to the point. “Big Bull Down filling the freezer,” he wrote before adding a handful of hashtags to the post.

Craig Morgan: Avid Hunter, Passionate Conservationist

It’s obvious that Craig Morgan is an avid hunter. If you star in eight seasons of a high-octane hunting show, you have to be. Then, there are photos like the one above that show that Morgan is still out there harvesting big game. However, hunting isn’t where his love for the outdoors ends. Like many other hunters and fishermen, Craig is passionate about wildlife conservation.

Back in 2014, Craig Morgan earned the honor of being the Chairman of National Hunting & Fishing Day. Congress established the day in 1971 to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in conservation efforts, according to Deer and Deer Hunting.

About that honor, Craig Morgan said, “I couldn’t be happier to serve as honorary chair for National Hunting & Fishing Day. As a parent, I’ve shared my love of the outdoors with my kids and I know that conservation is key to creating a better future for upcoming generations in other outdoor sports.” He went on to talk about the importance of the day. Morgan said, “This is a very important day to reflect on and participate in activities that celebrate conservation efforts by sportsmen and women around the country and I hope everyone will join me in celebrating this year.”

National Hunting & Fishing Day was on September 25 this year. If you want to celebrate the day next year, mark your calendars for September 24.
