A Huntin' Man disney song music“A Huntin’ Man” is a song from the Disney animated film “The Fox and the Hound“. The song was written by Richard Johnston and Jim Stafford and performed by Jim Stafford.

The song is sung by the character Amos Slade, a hunter who is a major character in the film. In the song, Slade sings about his love for hunting and the thrill of the chase. He also sings about his determination to catch his prey, no matter how elusive it may be.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
