Hunting Drives the Economy!

Deer, deer and more deer! Say hallelujah and pass the doe in heat pee baby! And go ahead and stomp a little on that mockscrape while you’re at it, won’t you! I hope everyone is joining me in celebrating these glorious good old days of deerhunting we have right here, right now all across...

Practice is fun and helpful no matter how many years you've been hunting!

Aim Small, Miss Small: The Mystical Flight of the Arrow

Young Ted had it made. Had my very 1st bow by the time I could walk (which was before my 2nd birthday) and quite honestly I never put it down in all these 68 glowing arrow flinging years! I don’t shoot arrows, I am the arrow! I am also hopelessly human, which brings about a...

Ted celebrates hunting and the great conservation story everywhere he can, from the woods to the concert stage!

Enjoying the Other Deer Bonanza in Texas!

The tawny spotted hide was only occasionally visible in the thick Texas cedar puckerbrush. I don’t think any animal can disappear quite like a spotted fallow deer. Skunked for more than twenty-one hard hunted days, for the life of me I just couldn’t figure these crazy spooky, ultra-elusive deer out, even on my own...

The Blessed Ritual: My American Dream Cup Runneth Over

“A simple life I will not have. It doesn’t satisfy me. I don’t believe in the status quo, it kind of leaves me weak.  A mountain high is what I climb, I swim the river deep. If you crave the time of your life, try to keep up with me!” I’m going to live,...

Happy September American Hunters!

Now we’re talkin’! September baby! Even though the tail-end summer temperatures are still stupid sweltering hot petty much everywhere and I still have three more outrageous skull crushing concerts to rockout, I do believe it is safe to say- HAPPY FALL 2016! What the heck! With some deerseasons, pronghorn, bear, moose, caribou, sheep and...

Fondle Hardware Like You Mean It!

I fondle hardware. I embrace sporting goods. I tinker. I wallow in outdoor gear. I snuggle ammo. I caress firepower. I break stuff. I wear stuff out. I live hard, love hard, hunt hard, rock hard, ride hard, shoot hard, play hard and work hard. Hell, I even think, grill, eat and sleep hard!...

Don’t Let The Season Get Away From You

What exactly is it we want out of our annual hunting season? Backstraps? Fun? Adventure? Challenge? Sport? A trophy? Escape? Quiet? That special campfire with family and friends? The healing powers of nature? Filling the memory bank? Defying political correctness? Or just flexing that pure, natural, instinctive predator muscle because we must? All of...

Get your predatory vibe jacked way up high for deer, elk, small game and whatever else you enjoy!

Leaping The Vast Chasm To Supreme Predatorship

The great one, our hero Fred Bear, declared the truism many years ago that a single season hunting with the bow and arrow can teach us more about being a hunter than a lifetime of gun hunting. With the inescapable short range limiting factors of archery, we can learn — we must learn rather...

I Smell Fall! Snort It Like You Mean It!

Did I say Happy August? You bet I did! I know, I know, it’s not that big of a deal in our wonderful world of deerhunting, but it is a whole month closer to October than July was! And I have a funny feeling that I’m not the only one getting all tingly and...

Shemane, Sasha and Caeden are proof of the deerhunting passion fires!

Baptize Them Slow and Easy!

Some of us in this glorious world of deerhunting are just plain lucky, especially those of us so doggone fortunate to have been born into a hunting family from the very beginning of our American outdoors Dream. It was December 13, 1948 when I arrived in Detroit, Michigan. My dad, Warren Henry Nugent was,...
