Ted Nugent Pays Fine for Hunting Violation

Ted Nugent is a nasty, vicious human being, who has far less worth than the animals he regularly slaughters just for the fun of it.  Nugent, a member of the board of the National Rifle Association (NRA), recently made the news for indirectly threatening the life of President Obama.

He is not only a rabid republican but he is also a passionate hater of all things liberal.  He has uttered threats and roundly criticized the OWS movements, along with the government of the United States.  His big mouth and powerful friends didn’t protect him from the law however, as this Newser story summary points out:
More gun fun with the Motor City Madman. Ted Nugent has agreed to a $10,000 fine for illegally shooting and transporting a black bear in Alaska in 2009, according to a plea he signed with prosecutors there, reports the Anchorage Daily News


  1. I read somewhere, just yesterday in a Tedstergeek's comment, on a different blog, that Teddy only hunts with a bow. That's one odd looking bow in that photo.

  2. I'm very pro-2nd Amendment --and actual facts over florid hyperbole-- but very anti-Nugent. He gives humanity a bad name. --A.

  3. I can see where people can have an impression like this about Ted. He is an extreme person with an equally extreme personality. I have hunted with him several times with a mutual friend who is an ex pro bow hunter. When out with him, you do things his way or no way. He is a bit of an asshole I would have to say. He is very opinionated and set in his ways and beliefs. At least he has the character and backbone to stand up for what he believes. Ted is an ethical hunter, and does not just indiscriminately slaughter animals. That is a lie.

    The whole bear hunt issue has been blown way out of proportion. Ted was singled out b/c he is a celebrity, and had the means to pay such a hefty fine. At the time, he thought he missed the bear, saw no evidence that it was wounded, and thus went after another. Any other hunter would have done the same. Later he went back to the scene, found a tiny amount of blood, no blood trail. The first bear was barley nicked by the arrow. Instead of continuing to fight the charges, he had the character to man up and pay the fine, admit responsibility.

    1. Interesting. Thanks for the first-hand opinion.
