The streets of New York City were wet and nasty on October 28, 1968 as I trudged back to my hotel after a long day of serious, and what turned out to be historical rock-n-roll recording. My killer band, The Amboy Dukes were laying down some more blistering tracks of firebreathing all American R&B&R&R...

Nugent: Cherish Your Queen of the Forest

I have not only been to the mountaintop, I live there! It’s worth repeating, as karma is as karma does, that I must live a pretty darn decent life, for God has rewarded me in stunning ways for a lifetime of dreams come true. And beyond. I was blessed to be born in America....

Toby Nugent First Whitetail Buck

Ted Nugent: My Son Toby, the Professional Deer Hunter

On that first deerhunt together in Texas in 1982, where 8-year-old daughter Sasha killed her first whitetail, 6-year-old son Toby was quite let down that he missed his shot. Rather! Over the years, I gently prodded my kids to join me deerhunting, but never pressured them that is was something I insisted on. Rather,...

Ted Nugent: Kamp for Kids a Positive Force

The Northern Michigan forest was aglow with October’s firestorm of colors and blazing sensual stimuli galore. The crisp air was delicious as I breathed in my ultimate ritualistic annual soul cleansing effervescence. A ruffed grouse drummed, a woodpecker hammered, squirrels scurried heather and yon. Honking geese came and went and a distant train whistle...

Practice, stealth, having your bow set up right all are part of becoming an effective and better hunter.

Ted Nugent: Killer Stealth is an Artform

Right place, right time. We all know that bagging a deer all boils down to somehow choosing where to go and when to be there. Mostly. But I hear from way too many very frustrated deerhunters that proclaim what I already know to be true, that following a reasonable dedication to due diligence in...
