“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.
The song serves to emphasize Slade’s character as a determined and skilled hunter, but also as a somewhat antagonistic character in the film. Its upbeat tempo and country-western style are consistent with the film’s rural setting and contribute to the film’s overall musical score.
