New Bowhunting Gear for 2016

Ted Nugent Elected into National Bowhunters Hall of Fame

"Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians – except for the occasional mountain lion steak.”

-Ted Nugent

Love him or hate him, no one bowhunter over the past quarter century has had more influence or impact on the American public than "Motor City Madman", Ted Nugent. His tireless accolades include award winning television shows, best selling books, countless charity work, and a rock n' roll career that has spanned the last 4 decades! An outspoken conservationist, the 60 year old Nuge has hunted with our presidents, spoken before our Senate, and fought alongside the NRA. Yes.. Ted has come a long way from the man who once shot flaming arrows into his concert-goers' seats. Today, the only thing Ted shoots is his signature bow and anybody who stands in his way and the way of the American ideal.

This past February 6th, 2009, Ted Nugent may have just received the greatest tribute of his life as he is inducted into The National Bowhunters Hall of Fame. The induction, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, was part of the National Field Archery Association's World Archery Festival at the famed Riviera Hotel. Ted is being honored for both his excellence in bowhunting and literary excellence. This acknowledgement is presented to him for his outstanding skills as an avid outdoorsman, and his tireless promotion of the sport of bowhunting through his many best-selling books and popular writings.

The staff at Bowhunting.com would first like to congratulate Ted on, what we think was, a well deserved induction. Although not without controversy, we know and thank you personally for some of the outstanding work you have done to keep our sport alive as others wish to devastate it.   Bowhunting.com wants to know how you feel about Ted Nugent. Please respond below to tell us if you think he should have been elected into The National Bowhunters Hall of Fame. We want to know if you feel Ted helps or hurts the hunting community.

  1. Personally.. I love the guy. At times I think he can be misunderstood.. but the fact remains he IS the face of hunting today. And he has done more than anyone else to prove otherwise.

    He's really one of the last few people in this world who just tell it like it is. I respect that.

    I couldn't agree more. Ted is a true American Hero and isn't afraid to tell the world what's on his mind, and what he stands for. When it comes to giving hunters a powerful and public voice, there's nobody better than Ted.

  6. ok. i can see that ted is loved by almost everyone. yes i would agree that he does alot out there for the bow hunting world. but i feel that he got into the hall of fame because of WHO he is. alot of people out there give and give and do alot for the bowhunting world. but we are not given awards or input into the bowhunting hall of fame. so i agree that ted has done alot for hunting, and i agree that he is a real hunter. but i think he got into the hall of fame more for who he is then what he has done. my own thoughts. sorry if you dont like them.

    I think comparing things that your average person does for bowhunting versus what Ted does and represents is like comparing apples to oranges. Yes, he has used his celebrity status to do these things but in a world run by liberals where "hunting" is a bad word Ted has stood up for what he believes in. Nobody has given hunters in general a bigger voice to a national audience than Ted has. And from the looks of the man's trophy room, I'd say he's a pretty accomplished bowhunter as well.

    I am split in my feelings over Ted. He is a great voice for hunting but at times can be on the fringe. He has the ability to voice his opinions to people that the average joe could never reach. I hope that he can help hunting grow in the future by bringing more kids and people into the hunting flock

    this is just absolutley amazing. In my opinion, no one deserves it more than him. The sticks up for what all us hunters believe in, bow or gun. Yes, he has used slot of his celebrity status to help him look at all the thing he's done for the bowhunting and general hunting communities. I aplaud him on getting accepted in to the national bowhunters hall of fame. Congratulations to Ted Nugent on winning the exclusive and prestigious award!

    If we all as hunters had the boldness and courage to stand up for our beliefs and "rights" that we have to pursue the great sport of hunting,we might not have to listen to so many of the antis. The Nuge is the greatest spokesman for our God given rights to hunt in this great nation.As well he supports our troops and veterans that fight to keep the freedoms that we have.He dose his job so well that I believe if he was a Pastor of a church, he could get the whole world saved.God bless Ted and all of his family and all who fight for our freedoms in this great country.

    Is Trophy Hunting A Form of Serial Killing?
    Gareth Patterson lion conservationist

    "For me and many of the people who contact me to offer their support, killing innocent animals for self-gratification is no different from killing innocent people for self-gratification. By extension, then, trophy hunting–the repeated killing of wild animals–should surely be viewed as serial killing.

    What the serial killer and trophy hunter also share is a compulsion to collect "trophies" or "souvenirs" of their killings. The serial killer retains certain body parts and/or other trophies"–"…for much the same reason as the big game hunter mounts the head and antlers taken from his prey…as trophies of the chase," according to Colin Wilson and Donald Seaman in The Serial Killers, a book on the psychology of violence.

    In The Serial Killers, the authors also wrote about Robert Hansen, an Alaskan businessman and big-game enthusiast who hunted naked prostitutes through the snow as though they were wild animals, then shot them dead. Hansen would point a gun at his victim, order her to take off all her clothes, and then order her to run. He would give his victims a "start" before stalking them. The actual act of killing his victims, Hansen once said, was an "anti-climax" and that "the excitement was in the stalking."

    Pornography is perceived by analysts as a facter that contributes toward serial killers' violent fantasies–particularly "bondage-type" pornography portraying domination and control over a victim.

    Hunting magazines contain page after page of (a) pictures of hunters, weapon in hand, posing in dominating positions over their lifeless victims, (b) advertisements offering a huge range of trophy hunts, and (c) stories of hunters' "exciting" experience of "near misses" and danger.

    Also you can see how heartless and cruel bowkillers are

    I wonder if anyone of you would like to die the way the bowshot deer dies?. The law karma is real and you will all eventually reap the pain and suffering you inflicted on the animals
