Hannah Barron is a popular outdoorswoman, noodler and YouTuber.
She has more than 400 thousand subscribers on her eponymous YouTube channel.
Hannah Barron was born on 3 July 1996 in Alabama, United States.
She grew up in Alabama.
Her father, Jeff Barron is also an outdoorsman and YouTuber.
He runs a YouTube channel by the name, Jeff Barron and he started the channel on 15 April 2020.
Hannah’s mother’s name is Amy Sherer Tackett.
Her parents got divorced when she was eight.
Hannah did her schooling from Brantley High School in Brantley, Alabama.
Then, she studied at Troy University and Lurleen B. Wallace Community College.
Hunting since a young age-
Her father is a hunter and he inspired Hannah to hunt and fish at a young age and she grew up hunting and fishing.
At a young age, her father taught her to clean a deer and she used to also run trotlines for catfish.
At 8, her father set up a homemade ground blind, made of pine limbs in the ground and helped Hannah to hunt her first deer.
She used .243 for shooting and since then, she started hunting.
At 10, Hannah started cleaning deer by herself.
While studying in high school, she used to hunt and fish too much and didn’t play any other sport.
And while in high school, Hannah also taught kids about welding.
Later, she had many breakups because of her excessive hunting.
At a later age, Hannah also started hunting elk.
Once Brad Gavins, a local game warden, shifted near Hannah’s house and became her neighbour and her father helped him by cutting lumber for him.
As a token of appreciation, Brad took her and introduced her to catfish noodling (hand fishing).
At that time, Hannah was 15 and has been noodling since then along with her father.
Becoming viral on internet-
In 2016, Hannah bought a cheap video camera and in order to test it, she started recording catfish noodling with it.
She recorded a video of herself catching around a 30-pound catfish and in this video, her cousin was speaking in the background.
Hannah posted this video on Instagram, and someone reposted it on a Facebook page and this video got reshared several times and received more than 20 million views.
At that time, there wasn’t much noodling content except the Hillbilly Handfishin’ TV show and noodling wasn’t well known and thanks to all these, her video became viral.
This was completely unexpected for Hannah as she didn’t intend her video to go viral and at that time, she also didn’t know that one could make a career in social media as a social media influencer.
This success of her video inspired her to keep publishing on social media and this in turn attracted many people towards noodling.
Starting her YouTube channel-
Hannah started her YouTube channel by the name, Hannah Barron on 10 May 2017.
As of February 2023, she has 485K subscribers on her YouTube channel and has 1.1M followers on Instagram and 1.8M followers on her Facebook page by the name, Hannah Barron Outdoors.
Hannah also posts on TikTok and Snapchat.
As Hannah doesn’t like to hurt the catfish population, she noodles them with care and tends not to hurt them.
If the fish gets hurt and becomes incapable of surviving in water, she cleans and eats it, instead of releasing it in water and wasting it.
Hannah releases most of the noodled fishes back into the water and consumes only a few of them.
She doesn’t fish in the fishing off seasons but instead prefers hunting.
In order to noodle, Hannah goes underwater and sticks her arm either in boxes or in natural holes of boat ramps but she doesn’t noodle in the banks.
Once she sticks her arm, the catfish would start to attack her arm in order to protect its eggs and this gives her a chance to noodle it.
Hannah sticks out her hand in a fist as the catfish has the potential to break fingers if the hand is stuck out in an open hand fashion.
