IOLA, Wis. – Longtime hunter, outspoken conservationist and legendary rock star Ted Nugent will be the first guest on Wednesday’s inaugural “Deer Talk Now,” a live talk show about whitetail deer from Deer & Deer Hunting.
Nugent has hunted for more than 50 years throughout the United States and Canada for whitetail deer, bear, wild boar and other species.
Nugent’s deep passion for hunting and the outdoors along with his outspoken nature have combined to place him at the forefront of the hunting public. Some appreciate that and others do not, but Nugent never sways from his strong convictions.
“My critics are mostly jealous because I am my own boss and have created an amazing quality of life for my family and myself through incredible hard work and dedication,” Nugent told Deer & Deer Hunting. “You find someone who has a problem with me and your are looking at an ignorant, cheap person.
“My supporters are legion, and the finest Americans there are. I am constantly invited to take terminally ill children on their last hunts, and to host the heroic wounded warriors of the U.S. military on hunting trips around the world. The absolute best of the best are on my side, so my detractors are exposed for the fools that they are. I couldn’t feel better about my real reputation and position in life.”
Originally from Detroit, Nugent’s vivid stage presentation and memorable guitar talents earned him the nickname “Motor City Madman.” For more than five decades he’s garnered multi-platinum hits and worldwide fame starting with the Amboy Dukes, following on through his successful solo career and then in the 1990s with Damn Yankees.
Nugent has released more than 35 albums since 1967 and sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. He schedules his tour dates for spring and summer, often performing for military personnel, but leaves autumn and winter open for hunting. Nugent currently is beginning his 53rd tour and will be performing throughout the United States this summer.
“Deer Talk Now” will air each Wednesday at 12 p.m. (CST), hosted by Brad Rucks, publisher, and Dan Schmidt, editor of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine. “Deer Talk Now” will feature special guests, questions from viewers and discussions about new hunting gear, habitat, hunting tactics, deer biology, hunter ethics, issues and more.
