Hank Williams Jr. Takes His Granddaughters Out For Their First Deer Hunting Experience: “Country Girls Can Survive”

Imagine having Hank Williams Jr as your grandpa.

On a recent Instagram post, Hank shared his (very girly) granddaughters decked out in camouflage and pink for their first deer hunt.

The cuties were pictured with matching ear-to-ear grins holding up a pretty decent six-point buck.

Hank creatively captioned the post with the tagline:

“I took my granddaughters for their 1st deer hunt. I think they did pretty good! (Country Girls Can Survive!)”

His daughter, Holly, was quick to comment on the photo calling Hank by his professional grandpa name… Bebop!

“Aww we love you so much Bebop! You made the best memories in the woods with Hilary and I, and now it’s so special to have the girls in there with you!”

I guess you could say deer hunting is just a Williams’ family tradition.

The family also got some doves last month in Alabama:

“The REAL Williams Family Tradition. Both of my son-in-laws and grandsons, and 127 Alabama doves.

My Grandfather Shelton’s 1966 Browning 16-gauge still shoots straight. Or maybe it’s the hunter?”

I mean…. just look at him.

Hank Williams Jr. might’ve been the coolest man to ever be a part of country music. The hat, the sunglasses, sitting on a porch in the woods talking about guns and the great outdoors… it’s the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Majestic, really.

Call it family tradition, but in this interview from 1992 filmed at his cabin in Kentucky Lake, he details how his love for the outdoors was passed down from his great grandfather, grandfather, and father who were all avid outdoorsmen.

And while plenty of people hunt, Hank Jr. has become pretty partial to antique guns:

“We shoot a lot of antique, obsolete old guns and it’s a challenge to take those old guns and make them do remarkable things at a very long range.

Our forefathers could hit the mark they were aiming at… and I really lost most of my interest in any type of modern guns.”

Because of course he did. You don’t get to be one of the most iconic outlaws in the history of country music by doing things the same way everyone else does them.

Bocephus seems to have taken inspiration from a few other American icons as well, noting that he admired “the old black powder, Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone” and the way those pioneers hunted back then.
