Fans and critics of outdoors icon Ted Nugent had a chance to ask him their tough questions during a webinar with D&DH on Nov. 3. If you weren't able to attend the live event, we're making the recording available for free. Just click here.
Some the questions Ted addressed:
"Many of your statements on hunting and the hunting lifestyle are among the most intelligent things I have ever heard. At the same time, you often become vulgar and call people names. Even fellow hunters. I do not understand why you stoop this level. When you do, most hunters I know immediately tune you out and dismiss anything you said previously. Why do you do this?
"In your interview with D&DH, I was confused when you blanket criticized the hunting industry that you have clearly been a big part of for many years. Don't get me wrong. I think the industry deserves plenty of criticism, but how do you now conveniently distance yourself from what you have clearly participated in and benefited from?
Why do you feel the need to kill every animal you get a shot at? I'm sure the meat doesn't go to waste, it just seems like it's a killing game to you. Like you are in it for the kill and not the hunt.
In your interview with D&DH, you said all of the talk about ethics by the Boone and Crockett Club, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and articles in D&DH sounds like guilt. What do you mean by that? Why is being ethical equal to guilt?
You are 62 years old and still go hunting nearly every day from September through January. Where do you get the energy, and what motivates you to keep doing this?
How did you come up with the song, "Fred Bear?"
What can states do to better manage their deer herds?
Why aren't we recruiting more deer hunters?
