Deer & Deer Hunting is proud to have rocker and hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent as an exclusive blogger. Few public figures represent the hunting community as ardently as Nugent, and the Deer & Deer Hunting team has been privileged to work with the famous hunting advocate on many projects over the years.
In this exclusive collaboration, Nugent is providing content for a weekly blog that will go live every Thursday. The blog will include never-before-seen content from Nugent. Readers can look forward to a weekly view inside Nugent’s love for all things deer and hunting. He leaves politics at the door to focus on the true issues and challenges facing today’s deer hunters and the deer hunting climate.
Blogs will occasionally have a carefully selected Nugent song and readers can also look forward to exclusive videos from tednugent.com.
Meat hunters are perfect conservationists. Sport hunters are perfect conservationists. Casual hunters are perfect conservationists. Gung-ho hunters are perfect conservationists. And shout it out loud and proud, trophy hunters are perfect conservationists!
When I emphasize the grace with which old-fashioned bows are in action, I must say that the word graceful is more and more applicable to the archery experience with modern compound bows. My belief remains, that if one hand holds the bow, and the other hand draws back the bowstring to release the arrow, we are experiencing and celebrating archery as pure as archery can be.
Certainly, our next hunt is all important, but one thing I’ve learned over 65-plus deer seasons, we don’t always kill a deer, but we do always bring home wonderful memories of some of the best times life has to offer. Many deer will get away from us each season. Do not let any of the memories get away from you!
We are only approaching the summertime blues right now, but it is always the best time to review our gear in preparation for what we should all make the best hunting season of our lives.
Let us talk about the exciting sport of hunting big game with handguns, shall we!
Some may think that our love of hunting and the great outdoors focuses solely on the fall season. But surely, for so many of us, the daily, driving pulse of the earth herself throttles throughout our being year-round with very little reduction in participation — no matter the season.
No matter what gets us down, fresh air and the escape into the great outdoors will always be there for us. May the healing arrows of your spirit fly true forever.
Some of my best trophies never made it to the taxidermist, for the best memories of all did not in fact include any killing. My hunting happy factor will never be impacted at all by any outside influences. It is all just too personal for me.
It is at this time I wish to humbly take a bended knee and genuflect at the altar of the immeasurable goodwill and positive spirit from my fellow hunting families around the world, and with much deep emotion, express my very sincere thanks to everyone who reaches out to me with extremely generous and very tempting invitations to join you all on so many wonderful hunts and spirit campfires across the land.
