The March 2011 Deer and Deer Hunting magazine posted a sequel to Ted Nugents article called "Ethics... Schmethics" written by Ted himself. The opening headline which I found very dismally ironic states,
When Hunters wring their hands worrying about how they're perceived, it erodes the hunting community credibility by Ted Nugent
I was just wondering how the world perceives Ted Nugent after getting charged for poaching? Ted personally plead "no contest" to the charges. Get this he was charged with two misdemeanors and over 11 counts of baiting and poaching while filming his show "Spirit of the Wild". Ted was quoted saying...
You may have read the news that I pled no contest to two misdemeanor game violations, it states. I should have been better informed, more aware and I take full responsibility. The honorable hunting lifestyle is my deepest passion.
You should have known the game laws but that's no excuse Ted. Our hunting tradition is not about "should haves". Ofcourse people will argue the charges where dropped, which they where. But this guy represents all of us a sportsman!

Yes Ted I personally worry about how our tradition is perceived. Especially when it comes to "rock stars" trying to popularize our tradition and turning around getting arrested for baiting and poaching. So who is really eroding the hunting community?
