Uncle Ted on Baiting and hunting…

Uncle Ted on Baiting and hunting…

Oh My some common sense? That can’t be…


If you are a hunter you can appreciate that. Anti’s are not just PETA and the HSS, it’s also US. Those that spend their time criticizing other hunters for their methods, are nothing more than elitists and they help the true enemy.

Know it.

Why we shoot Deer in the wild… Truthful Humor.

Why we shoot Deer in the wild… Truthful Humor.

This is absolutely the funniest thing I’ve read in a very long time. IF it’s true the guy is a darwin award candidate:

Why we shoot deer in the wild (A letter from someone who wants to remain anonymous, who farms, writes well and actually tried this)

I had this idea that I could rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away), it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home.

I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope. The cattle, having seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it. After about 20 minutes, my deer showed up– 3 of them. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me. I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold..

The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation. I took a step towards it, it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope .., And then received an education. The first thing that I learned is that, while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope.

That deer EXPLODED.

The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity. A deer—no Chance. That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I had originally imagined.. The only upside is that they do not have as much stamina as many other animals.

A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head.

At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope.

I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and  I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual. Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer’s momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground. I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in. I didn’t want the deer to have to suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder – a little trap I had set before hand…kind of like a squeeze chute. I got it back in there and I started moving up so I could get my rope back.

Did you know that deer bite?

They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when ….. I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist. Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and slide off to then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head—almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts.

Ted Nugent: I Should Have Known Better

Ted Nugent: I Should Have Known Better

I’ve been reluctant to post anything about this incident, but since the anti-hunters, anti-Nugent forces are all aligning to pile on, I figured I should weigh in.

Here’s the deal:

Aug. 13–Rock star and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 today in Yuba County Superior Court after pleading no contest to baiting deer on his hunting show “Spirit of the Wild.”

Yuba City attorney Jack Kopp, representing Theodore Anthony Nugent, 61, entered a no contest plea to Department of Fish and Game charges of baiting deer and not having a deer tag “countersigned” at the closest possible location, said Deputy District Attorney John Vacek.

Baiting deer is legal in some states but not in California, said state Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy. Baiting supplies are sold at some outdoor stores, he said.

The deer was killed in El Dorado County toward the end of deer hunting season last fall but brought to Yuba County. Two co-defendants, Mitchell Neil Moore and Ross Albert Patterson, live in Yuba County, said Vacek.

Moore was a photographer on the show. The role of Patterson, who pleaded no contest to taking an animal with bait, was not clear, said Foy.

Moore and Patterson also were represented by Kopp and did not appear in court. Moore, who pleaded no contest to possessing an animal illegally, agreed to a fine of $700. Patterson agreed to a fine of $1,225, Kopp told Judge James F. Dawson.

All three men were ordered to pay the fines by Oct. 1.

So what makes this a HOLY SHIT WE GOT TED MOMENT? Well of course it’s because he’s an outspoken advocate for Hunters, for ETHICAL Hunting, for Gun Rights, for ALL things AMERICAN.

Everyone knows I’m a huge fan of the “NUGE” I’m a hunter, I’m a fisherman, I’m an American, I believe in damn near everything this man believes in and he’s got a pulpit to shout from. You’re damn right I support this guy.

Ted’s Official  statement:

To my Fellow Outdoorsmen…. You may have read the news that I pled no contest to two misdemeanor game violations in CA. I should have been better informed, more aware and I take full responsibility. Our honorable hunting lifestyle is my deepest passion.

Ted Nugent.

So the man made an error in judgment. Forgiven?. Uh Well Maybe not.

Seems as though the hunting community is taste testing the flesh. Cannibalism is running rampant throughout the hunting community. Ted’s always had his detractors. Ted’s not exactly shy about his beliefs and he’s pissed a lot of folks off. Maybe that’s why I’m a big supporter of him. Very rarely does he apologize for ANYTHING. IF he did or said something that offended you, you may as well just learn to love it…

But the Hunting Community should be his biggest supporter. We all support hunting in our own ways. Tags, licenses, equipment are all ways we support hunting, but what else do you do? Are you on the front lines against the anti’s? Ted is and he’s fended off NUMEROUS legal, and ridiculous attempts to silence him. He’s been fighting the good fight FOR ALL OF US as long as I can remember. He’s one of the biggest supporters of our Military and LEO’s. He’s kickin ass and takin names 24/7, and some in the community want to jump on this issue as a “OH MY GOD” moment?

I suggest you hunters take stock in the fight we are in and realize there are very few folks out there with the guts to tell it like it is. And when you find one, you better support that person come hell or high water. He made a mistake and he paid his fine. THE END.

Do you quit supporting your favorite NASCAR driver when he gets a speeding ticket or in a wreck? Please.

The facts of this particular incident are shady at best. I know from people that were actually there during the hunt in question. There are a few facts that people don’t know. I’m not going into all the details but I’ll share this little bit with you:

The “spike” he was accused of taking was LEGAL. Taking a “Spike” in CA is akin to killing a child. IF Ted actually killed a “SPIKE” he wouldn’t have got off with a fine.

The buck had a fork, it was a good clean shot on a YOUNG Buck. Ted hunts for meat. Ted eats what he kills, Ted also donates meat to the homeless. PERIOD.

Ted entered a plea of NO CONTEST to POSSIBLY hunting within 400 yrds of Bait. According to folks that were there NO C’mere dere was used. There was an Apple Orchard on the hunting grounds, in California I guess that’s bait. The threat of massive law suits, and ridiculous charges against Ted’s friends was enough to get Ted to fall on the sword and enter the plea. I say Kudos for protecting yourself and your friends. We pick our battles and HUNTERS in CALIFORNIA are pretty much screwed. IF ted were in AMERICA, this wouldn’t have been an issue. California is ridiculous in it’s laws, and most of the Fish and Game idiots don’t have a clue about the laws.

Many of us have told Ted stay the hell out of here. Do not hunt here in this state until we are able to undo the damage the liberpukes have done. Ted’s answer…”NOPE. I’m going to kill more shit in that state for spite, I’ll just be better informed” Gotta love it.

I’ll leave you with last nights George Lopez Show:

Yep that’s a man unafraid to speak truth.

Okay, now I’m sure the Anti-Ted troll brigade will find their way here and put fourth their clear and concise argument why Ted is a bad man…I’m sure the usual “Draft dodger” and “Child molester” comment from those that hate Ted, hunting, guns, America and anything that resembles the country we used to or could be….Beware, Ted is a little nicer to his detractors than I will be in MY BLOG.
