CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO TED’S CLASSIC WEEKEND WARRIORS
Well here we go again backstrappers! Uncle Ted right back at ya here at deeranddeerhunting.com. And yet another loud and proud terminal backstrap breath greetings to my DeerandDeerhunting BloodBrothers all. I am oh so confident that, like mine, your freezers are full or getting there, your spirit beyond cleansed and wild, and your reasoning predator soul still on fire as yet another cherished hunting season throttles on. I guarantee the season never ends for those of us dedicated to improvise, adapt and overcome. A long season is wonderful, but an endless season is perfect. I’ve always been a big fan of the “P” word. Go for it!
We are all well aware how perfect hunting, fishing and trapping is, as God’s design of sustain yield resource productivity and respectful utility. Animal-rights freaks, anti-hunting freaks and anti-gun freaks are indeed just that; freaks!
But what I’m about to share with you is in my mind the definitive evidence that what we do as hunters is as pure as pureness gets. I make it a point to bring this phenomenal truth to the forefront in the hundreds and hundreds of major media interviews I do each year, 1000s upon 1000s over the last 45-plus years that drives home a conservation truism that is not lost on educated, intelligent, caring, thoughtful people by the billions. Yes, that is billions with a b!
I celebrate and promote the perfection of hunting, never apologizing or defending, everywhere I go in everything I do. Only the lunatic fringe of weird, disconnected, uneducated, ignorant, bad people deny otherwise.
Since the late 1960s, I have been moved and fascinated when families contact me to fulfill the request of a terminally ill family member, usually a young person, and most often, a very young little boy of girl.
And not just any request mind you. These courageous souls, facing imminent death, want the MotorCity Madman, the wild-eyed Whack em and Stack em bowhunter to take their beloved children on their last hunt in life.
Think about it. Just based on sheer media visibility, I am the most visible and unapologetic hunter on earth, not exactly over-cautious about how I go about promoting the things I believe in, oftentimes in certain environments resorting to some pretty strong street slang to drive the point home, shall we say.
Ted’s got a great outlook on life in this 1978 interview:
Yet with all the insanely intense, unbridled and uninhibited Wango Tango not-so-PG13 rock-n-roll, the parents and families of 6- and 7-year-old little boys and little girls call me, the ol’ WhackMaster to fulfill a request to go on one last hunt before they die.
Go ahead and close your eyes, take a deep breath, and contemplate that for a moment.
Can you imagine the horror, the pain, the trauma, the sadness, the confusion, the heartbreak of such a time in a families’ lives? I can think of nothing more difficult in life.
Sadly and inexplicably, the otherwise wonderful Make-A-Wish Foundation, refuses to grant children’s last wishes for hunting. If that’s not political correctness gone mad and soulless, I don’t know what is. Thankfully, a hunting family created an alternative charities called “Hunt Of A Lifetime” and the American Airlines children’s charity, “The Snowball Express”, that do grant such wonderful, legal, proper, loving, ethical family hunting trips, and we salute them with all we’ve got.
So know that a dying child and their family, traumatized by the agonizing ordeal of saying good-bye to a loved one so painfully prematurely, cuts through the PC lies and soullessness, and they understand better than any of us possibly could, that hunting is undeniably a pure, righteous participatory act as part of God’s perfect tooth, fang and claw creation.
When I accept such a humbling invitation, and I never turn one down, know that I do so not just for the Nugent family and those special families in need, but I do so for the honorable hunting community around the world, accepting and acknowledging that such a last request is pure and good, and it comes from deep inside for all the right reasons.
We all know that hunting campfires are special and stirring everytime, but rest assured that there is no hunting campfire like a last hunting campfire with a young boy or girl who knows that it is indeed their last campfire on earth.
Share this reality with your friends and family, and let this fact be the final bludgeon to the skulls of the non-believers that hunting is indeed as pure as life itself. Godbless the hunters, Godbless the children.
