Ted Nugent was named Detroit’s Greatest Guitar Player of All Time by readers of MLive. A lifelong outdoorsman, Nugent balances the frenzy of the road with the quiet of the woods. His award-winning Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild television show recently celebrated its 500th episode.
In 1946 while at his family camp near Lake City, MI, a chemist by trade and bowhunter as hobby, began what has turned out to be one of Modern Archery’s greatest stories of commitment, innovation and inspiration. Rollin Bohning working with the likes of Fred Bear and Doug Easton brought solutions to what was then a young archery community. Today, on that very same piece of Northern Michigan land, stands a testament to the courage of those early archery pioneers. The Bohning Company; a strong, resilient, dedicated team of remarkable individuals.
The team at Bohning has been perfecting arrow flight for 75 years!! From our roots as the first developer of adhesives, waxes, arrow cresting and fletching devices, we evolved to making the most widely used vanes and nocks in the world. In 2020 the Griffin Vane, developed for the Olympic Archer, continued the tradition of solving performance, strength and durability issues with grass roots design, engineering and innovation.
Bohning produces the finest target archery accessories used world-wide. Target practice and competitions are vitally important to the sport. Bohning produces vanes for traditional archers, long-distance field archers and indoor spot shooters. However, it is one Bohning Vane that, since its inception has adorned more arrows, built more confidence and fulfilled more dreams than any other vane.
The Bohning Blazer’s design, material and geometry have helped hunters realize dreams for over a decade. In Latin America, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asia and North America the bow hunter has relied on the Bohning Blazer Vane to control arrow flight from mountain top to grasslands, from northern oak ridges to deep mountain gorges. The Bohning Blazer vane has made every incredible trek, adventure, climb, crawl and stalk ever imagined and realized.
Why is what Bohning does more important than just producing arrow accessories? Because It is a testament to Rollin Bohning’s original desire to make a better product that would ensure success and efficient for the archer. The time, we as Archers, spend in preparation and pursuit of that “once in a life time opportunity” is done with confidence because of Blazer Vanes.
It is with all this in mind that BOHNING begins its celebration of 75 years as the leader in design, innovation and performance … let the BLAZER TOUR begin.

DEF LEPPARD, TED NUGENT, BRIAN MAY, EXTREME Among Guests On Season Five Of ‘Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar’
AXS TV announced today that the network’s popular music interview series “Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar” will premiere its fifth season on Sunday, April 19 at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT. The season features six all-new episodes, kicking off with a stop in Las Vegas where rock superstar Sammy Hagar checks in on his world-famous eatery the Cabo Wabo Cantina, and receives the key to the city. After that, Hagar sits down with Shaquille O’Neal at the Lakers great’s Big Chicken restaurant, and closes out the day with a jam session with hard rock pioneers DEF LEPPARD during their residency at Planet Hollywood.
Then, on April 26, Hagar visits his hometown of Fontana, California, where he catches up with Grammy winner Rob Thomas and the duo take the stage to deliver a powerhouse performance of Thomas‘s mega-hit “Smooth” in front of a roaring crowd. And, on May 3, The Red Rocker (Hagar) meets the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent, for a unique road trip featuring a wild ride on a four-wheeler and a lesson in archery, before sitting down for a lively chat in Nugent‘s living room followed by a jam on the classic hit “Jenny Take A Ride”.

“We have an absolute blast producing this show each year, visiting incredible locations to sit down with some of the most legendary entertainers of all time,” Hagar said. “This is a dream come true for me, traveling the country to hang out and play music with my friends, and I am excited to show our fans all the epic things we have planned in season five. The first six episodes include great jam sessions and conversations with some truly talented entertainers, and I already cannot wait for production to start back up again so we can get out there and film this next batch of epic episodes.”

Ted Nugent the ‘Motor City Madman’ as he’s often referred to, took time from his busy schedule [hunting as he says in this interview] to chat with KNAC.com. Over the course of his career Nugent has sold more than forty million albums and performed over 6,500 shows.
Ted Nugent has a new album due on November 9th titled The Music Made Me Do It, his follow up to the 2014 release Shutupandjam! He has added a nice bonus to the first pressing of the new album—A live concert DVD Live At Freedom Hill, featuring his current rhythm section bassist Greg Smith and drummer Jason Hartless. As a friend said, “Just wind him up and watch him go!” I did just that and Nugent exploded as if he had been fired out of a cannon. As I hung up the phone, a three point buck sprinted across the field in front of my house. Nugent released an album titled Spirit of The Wild, did he not?
You asked and we answered! Ted’s wildly popular coffee is now available in whole bean! Pick up one (or all three!) of Ted’s amazing blends – The Original, Sin-O-Man and KillerBrew Hazelnut, exclusively in the official TedNugent.com Store.
Ted’s latest article is now live on TedNugent.com. In it, he discusses the various daily rituals that mean so much to him, not least of which, the archery rituals that fuel him with a new bowhunting season fast approaching. Check it out here!
