Kentucky Ultimate Outdoor Expo

August 29, 2017

by Ted Nugent

Man does not live by rock-n-roll alone. Well, not completely, but almost! I mean come on! It is the ultimate soundtrack of the American Dream of God, family, country, career, hunting, horsepower, firepower, independence, rugged individualism and deercamp afterall!

Be A One-Man Wildlife Army

August 23, 2017

By Ted Nugent

There is a vast, stunning, towering, soul cleansing forest in the swamplands of southern Michigan that an uppity guitar player planted by hand. With many indigenous coniferous and deciduous species of trees, some now more than 45 years old, this mystical woodland paradise is living proof that real honest to God sweat equity prioritized stewardship can and will make a difference for thriving wildlife and healthy wildground, not to mention a sense of gratifying fulfillment and soul cleansing spiritual fortification that makes a man feel all warm and good inside.

California Rocker Review: Ted Feels California Love!

July 13, 2016

nug_californiaLove_DonnaBalancia BY: Donna Balancia

Ted Nugent had audiences applauding wildly and jumping for joy during the Southern California swing of his Sonic Baptizm Tour.  Now it’s on to the East Coast.

Since the 1970s, the 67-year-old “Motor City Madman” from Detroit has been rocking harder than most of his peers. His wild antics and promotional stunts have enabled him to cash in handsomely on his musical talent.  But this guy isn’t blowing smoke or hiding behind his politics. Nugent’s guitar playing is amazing and his voice is strong and clear.

THE NO VACANCY BATTLECRY!

May 18, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

NO VACANCY! No room at the inn! FullUp! I’m sorry, we are plum overloaded here, you will have to find somewhere else to live.

With more deer, cougar, bear, wild turkey, geese and other game in North America than ever in recorded history, the expansive wildlife habitat across the land is filled to the max with every critter it can possibly support.

There simply is No Vacancy!

Even elk, bison and in some regions, moose, wild sheep and pronghorn are currently in numbers better than in more than 100 years. I am convinced that these are indeed the good old days of hunting in America.

There is, in reality, no place in North America that can handle any more deer, elk, bison, cougar or most game critters. The habitat is literally full-up.

This past season I had the best dove hunting, squirrel hunting, waterfowl hunting, deerhunting and bear hunting I have had in more than 60 years of chasing critters. I had so much fun I could hardly stand myself!

As I gear up for my Sonic Baptizm tour across America all summer long preparing to perform my 6,574th concert, I have to come to grips with the fact that I won’t be able to hunt with my beloved dogs every day for a while. I won’t be able to check my trapline every morning, hunt hogs, exotics and varmints, or take my daily walks in my sacred swamps and woodlands or commune with the precious wildlife that gives me so much life.

God, Family, Country, Deerhunting

May 4, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

The great Dirty Harry once eloquently and profoundly stated; “A good man has to know his limitations.” A voice from the other side also happened to state a valuable life truism when Al Capone railed; “Enthusiasms! A man has got to have enthusiasms.”

Well, that there pretty much covers the gamut of important guiding lessons in life, does it not?

With nearly 68 incredible years of sharing very special campfires with great families across this country, it really doesn’t take much deep thinking to grasp the self-evident truth of logic and commonsense all around us, but when a segment of society goes off the deep end of insanity and dares to claim that the animals that feed and clothe mankind somehow possess the same rights as people, you know we are in trouble as a species.

It is bad enough that such crazy dishonesty exists anywhere, but when this lunacy that equates cartoon characters to wildlife actually affects policy and laws regulating living, breathing, flesh and blood creatures on our farms, ranches and in the wild, and the sustenance for human existence overall, then a serious paradigm shift must take place at the hands of educated, honest caring people everywhere.

So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I give you the presidential election 2016 in the United States of America. For those of us paying attention and actually performing our critical we the people responsibilities, the life and death importance of November 2016 transcends our love for the rut and pretty much everything else worthwhile.

SALUTE To The SpiritWild Volunteers

April 26, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

As great, generous, caring, giving, loving, volunteering Americans prepare for our 26th annual summer celebration of the mighty Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids charity events across the hinterland, I stand in awe at the level of incredible hard work, dedication and sacrifice so many people endeavor for the benefit of America’s future generation of conservationists and sporters.

Sure, the organization has my greasy, loud and proud rock-n-roll name attached to it, but be it known by all good people everywhere that the real success and powerful positive impact our Kamp has had on so many children all these years is a direct result of the army of very special people who bust their humps to make it happen every year. As always, when great things happen, there is an army of all- American, gungho, we the people volunteers that know no limits to the Herculean efforts necessary to put incredibly difficult logistics together in order to benefit others.

That, my friends, defines The American Way that we all know and love. God bless America!

There are many amazing charities across America where great families guide and mentor children in the ways of the wild, and to all of them, a huge SALUTE on behalf of all good and smart people who understand the critical importance of hands-on outdoor lifestyle education in this strange and bizarre world of political correctness against all the good stuff.

THE MIGHTY SPIRIT OF THE WILD

April 20, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

I ain’t got time for make believing. My time is short but I’m here to stay. No politics will cure the grieving. I’ll choose my life and I’ll choose it my way.

Just like the wolf I’m getting hungry. The law of the land it is my will. I ain’t got time for staying angry, but I’ve got the time to make a kill.

And I live my life tooth, fang and claw. I live my life and I live it my way.

Watch me live tooth, fang and claw, and watch me live an extra day.

The red man walked his sacred hillside. The black man run through his Africa. My daddy stalked the amber prairies and we all got to live by nature’s law.

I live my life tooth, fang and claw. I live my life and I live it my way.

Watch me live tooth, fang and claw, and watch me live an extra day.

Don’t you worry about me, I can and I will survive.

Running with the pack, like the lone wolf I am alive.

And like my forefathers before me I can use my own two hands.

You better believe me I can live off the land.

Sacred Venison-Fondle With Care

ASK UNCLE TED

Rule #1-Respect your elders. At my age (67.4 hyper years) this can definitely come in rather handy since the largest percentage of my fellow man is noticeably younger than old, feeble, yet eternally dangerous me.

Based on the many millions of wonderful folk around the world I get to communicate with every day on my electronic facebook campfire, I sincerely thank all of you for the gushing respect we share on so many issues on this modern social media communication network phenomenon.

Afterall, communication is everything as far as I’m concerned, particularly in this dastardly culture war brought on by so many years of failed communication by so many we the people Americans.

Everyone paying attention knows all too well that the tip of the culture war spear is hunting rights and gun rights and I’ve been dead-center in the middle of this embarrassing fray since the 1960s.

But a brief visit to my facebook will shine a powerful light on the widespread celebration of self-evident truth, logic, commonsense and The American Way lifestyle, regardless of whether one hunts or owns guns themselves.

For the most part, truth is truth, logic is logic and commonsense is common and sensible, thank God.

The Sportsman’s Foodplot Phenomenon-Real Conservationists at Work

April 11, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

Nothing makes for more soulful, greasy, stimulating guitarlicks like adequate terra firma shrapnel twixt one’s ten digits of doom.

Allow me to translate for the adventure challenged linguistics amongst us- The more a guitarplayer works the Good Mother Earth, the more soulful his or her guitarplaying will be.

Let me tell you all about it! I love music, pretty much all music, as long as it has spunk, funk, spirit, shimmy, energy, attitude, passion, groove and believability.

But my favorite music in the world is my music because I write, sing and play killer music of the earth, down and dirty, instinctual, premeditated sonic bombast celebration of life, for God’s miraculous creation, His critters and wild places, The Great Spirit of the Wild, tooth, fang and claw, blood and guts, love and lust, no holds barred gut wrenching, gut piling, gut fondling, backstrap sizzling, snarling, sexy, physics of spirituality animal breeding soundtrack dance music from the depth of creation itself.

Are you still with me here? Can you please bear with me as I call in an airstrike to allthings status quo deerhunting? Now, mind you, nobody loves allthings status quo deerhunting.com more than I do. I actually look to all the various, and dare I say brilliant outdoor publications and writings as my daily dose of SpiritWild bible-thump, as I, like most of you, am wonderfully addicted to the deerhunting lifestyle and dearly appreciate all the wisdom, opinions, ideas, thoughts, data, science and joys that glow from such pages and screens.

That being said, I am, afterall, the deerhunting guitar-guy, and I do believe that my channeling of our phenomenal outdoor lifestyle into my creative musical guitar life is not unlike everyone’s channeling their own outdoor joys into each individual’s life, lifestyle and passions overall.

Joy in, joy out.

Accentuate the Positive

April 7, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

I’ve never watched goofy soap operas or so called “reality” TV shows. What could possibly be interesting or entertaining about some made-up silliness that has no basis in the real world? At least Dirty Harry made sense.

I’ve actually got a rather amazing real life that keeps me busy, inspired, motivated and engaged. Afterall, I dare to believe that this sacred experiment in self-government includes guitar players from Detroit who run hunting operations in Texas, so my plate has been full and overflowing for more than 60 years.

God bless America!

And who needs crazy television shows when none of them could possibly compete in the theater of the absurd with the daily insanity running amok before our very eyes in America today?

Rod Serling wouldn’t have come up with anything more outrageous for a mind bending episode of The Twilight Zone than what transpires each and every hour across the globe these days.

Can’t we all just get along? Hell no!

March 16, 2016

By: Ted Nugent

Division: You know, the proper and intelligent separation of differing ideas, choices, right and wrong, good and evil, law and order versus crime, cats and dogs, lions and lambs, my greasy BBQ and some vegan’s seaweed, common-sense stuff like that. In most cases, division is not only a good thing, but essentially desirable in order to achieve meaningful quality of life for individual and diverse choices in life.

For example, in my exciting, industrious life as a musician, I have always intentionally divided myself from stoned, irresponsible, slobbering, suicidal, inept, stinky hippies and low-man-on-the-totem pole, half-baked musicians that just don’t cut the mustard.

Why on earth would anyone want to “unite” with such counterproductive humanity?

In spite of the late not-so-great Rodney King’s goofy, fantasyland mantra, intentional, smart-choice division is why we have jails and prisons. It is always a good idea to divide the good from the bad and the ugly.

GOP ELITE: GET YOUR HEADS OUT!

March 9, 2016

Here, let the guitar player help. You know I’m here to help, right? Tell me you have faith in the old MotorCity Madman when I tell you that I sincerely want to resuscitate the fumbling, bumbling, stumbling, staggering, stammering, gagging, ailing, deaf, dumb and blind GOP and help lead them back on track to self-evident truth, logic, common sense, accountability and that good old long ago GOP American Way.

2 COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SPECIES IN AMERICA?

March 2, 2016

For the life of me, I have never been more confused in my 67 years of clean and sober logic-driven American Dream. I mention 67 years clean and sober to emphasize why I don’t need to nor cannot use the mind-rotting substance abuse excuse that obviously plagues so many of my fellow Americans as they fumble about like gaffed tuna on a sunlit beach.

PRECIOUS, ADORABLE, RADICAL ME

February 24, 2016

The enemies of America are masters at lying and deception. If you are going to study and believe in Saul Alinsky as they do (you know, the author whose book was dedicated to Satan, a book that’s the bible to Clinton, Obama et al.), you can’t do any better than the leftist scamgang over at the freaky Huffington Post and the smoke-and-mirrors freedom haters at moveon.org, Media Matters, Salon or the always putrid Southern Poverty Law Center. (Funny how they aren’t southern, engineer poverty, and defy law. In fact, there is nothing center about them as they wallow in the bizzarro world of crazed hate, dishonesty and abject leftism.)

BERNIE’S SNAKE OIL AND LOGIC-DEFICIENT MILLENNIALS

February 17, 2016

A word to the embarrassing, clueless young people who believe Sen. Sanders is their ticket to prosperity: There is no free lunch.

Old Bernie is scamming young people with his “democratic socialism” and politically correct, fantasy-driven, feel-good “fairness” tripe. Regretfully, too few of our young people have the worldly know-how or basic economic smarts to see that his dusty ideas are historically proven to be dangerous, beyond dumb and potentially even deadly.
