Details Details Details

September 9, 2021

By: Ted Nugent DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS Dear Uncle Ted; the daily communications always start off from people all across America and beyond asking the old guitarjamming backstrapdaddy a plethora of questions about my gungho Spirit of the Wild hunting lifestyle and every imaginable activity associated with it. It’s pretty darn special to have such vast communications about the things I am most passionate about! Though I’m pretty sure we can all agree I’m no Fred Bear when it comes to masterful hunting, I nonetheless have been blessed to connect with herds of humanity due to my big mouth and extremely contagious celebration of truth, logic, commonsense and my constant lifetime passionate promotion of the powerful healing properties of hands-on nature participation. Add to that credential the fact that I actually got my hunting education from the absolute best of the best like Fred Bear, and I certainly am qualified to pass on the wisdom and knowledge that I sponged from the masters. Since hunting has been around since the dawn of man, the tradition and lessons and proven strategies of successful reasoning predatorship have been handed down generation after generation. Though there are many entrenched basics for venison procurement 101, hunting nonetheless will always be hunting, always extremely challenging, and even when all the time proven strategies are implemented along with all the neverending technological advancements, there are still no guarantees when it comes to right place right time critter ambushing.

REALWORLD SURVIVAL SKILLS

August 18, 2021

By: Ted Nugent You feel it don’t you! A burning, powerhouse throbbing deep in our souls! As summer throttles on, our spiritual radar is picking up super strong signals all around us, and as hunters in the modern world, we know exactly what to do with these signals. The primal scream is alive and well as long as we pay attention. As we witness the inescapable ugly results of a society inexcusably further disconnecting from the natural world around them, and the self-preservation instincts associated with it, we can rejoice our eternal participation and reverence for the natural world and its soul cleansing healing powers. We can’t wake-up everybody in the world, but we sure can alert the people in our lives how critically important a role the natural world plays in ultimate quality of life. The spirit of the woods is like an old, good friend. It makes us feel warm and good inside!

I’ve tried valiantly to arrow one of the many exotics we celebrate here in Texas, but amazingly have been skunked every time and time again. How can that be when exotic hunting is a fish in the barrel kind of thing! Cuz it aint, that’s why!

Down To Earth

July 27, 2021

By: Ted Nugent Grounded! Down to earth! Certainly two of the greatest compliments a person can bestow upon another, identifying the integrity, reliability and righteousness of an individual. When it gets right down to it, both those terms are quite literal in their origin, celebrating a person’s honest, earthly touch and connection, as in farming, ranching, hunting, fishing, trapping and overall down and dirty terra firma hands-on lifestyles. From my earliest years roaming the mystical riverine wildgrounds of the mighty Rouge River in my Detroit neighborhood, in between guitarkranking adventure, I was always fascinated by the animals, birds, furbearers and their intriguing habitat. Thank God I had this soul cleansing wildlife Skunk Hollow paradise right across Hazelton Street to lure me away from concrete jungle citytime so often. Sure, I was equally fascinated by the downtown electricity, and explored that MotorCity environment just as often.

The Most Often Asked Questions

July 14, 2021

By: Ted Nugent Heck, if I were just lucky enough to be a bowhunter all these wonderful years, I suppose that would provide more than adequate celebratory fodder for my mystical flight of the arrow American Dream. But crazy, lucky, lucky me, my bowhunting life is anything but simply personal, isolated and secretive, for as I go about my daily life’s business, no matter where that might take me, my love for the sport is emphasized and fortified by people approaching me everywhere I go to talk bowhunting! At the gas station, grocery store, feedmill, hardware store, car wash, car dealer, sushi bar, coffee shop, music store, dentist office, or even yesterday at the University of Michigan Medical Center having a routine procedure for us old guys, everyone wants to talk killer guitar licks, rock-and-roll, gunrights and bowhunting. And I am more than enthusiastic to join in and let er rip! Many such conversations erupt with genuine interest on how to get started with the bow and arrow.

Ultimate Resource Management

June 30, 2021

By: Ted Nugent Clearly, the jury is not still out when it comes to wildlife management 101. The inescapable proof and universal evidence of why game animals are thriving in America and elsewhere today is a direct result of the simplest of science; habitat management, its carrying capacity and the sustain yield annual valued harvest of the surplus. Placing real world value on habitat protection, improvement, enhancement and overall management along with the monitoring of wildlife productivity is a virtual guarantee that these wonderful natural wildlife resources will thrive forevermore. We the people in the hunting/conservation world can all rejoice and be exceedingly proud of such an accomplishment in a world that rarely does the right thing whenever government bureaucrats get involved. We’ve succeeded in spite of them so far. These wildlife resources are truly precious and mean the world to nature lovers everywhere, which is why they remain in the asset column when bureaucrats get out of our way and let truth, logic, science and common sense guide our policies. Usually. When I say usually, it is because it is unfortunately not always the case.

The Simple Things Are The Best Things

June 24, 2021

By: Ted Nugent           A tin of sardines with saltine crackers on a cold fall afternoon around a warming campfire in the Yukon. A makeshift coniferous shelter from a cold rain on the banks of a babbling brook in Alaska. Buddies laughing and swapping stories at the buckpole on a family farm in November. Dragging a son’s and/or daughter’s first deer out of the woods together. The unrivaled thrill of hearing the glorious words; “Here he is over here!!” The delicious, overpowering aroma of thick-cut slab bacon sizzling at 3am on opening morning. Sitting in a tree during a snowstorm. The first hunt with dad. The last hunt with dad.

The Great Balancing Act

June 21, 2021

By: Ted Nugent Like pretty much every day of my life, I spent most of today walking and wandering in, on and about some wonderful, healthy, soul cleansing wildlife habitat wildground. As summertime throttles onward and we dream of cool October days, I continue to seek, absorb and cherish new lessons of the wild that not only bring me much immediate gratification and powerful sense of belonging, but also a constant reminder of God’s miraculous nature creation, and most importantly, our moral, intellectual and spiritual obligation to take good care of His precious gift. Natural resource stewards unite Having just celebrated my 73rd renewal of another springtime, now summer shows us how perfect the four seasons are in the big scheme of life.
