I was in a sort of heated debate in a record shop over Ted Nugent and it got me thinking of him. Later, I went to a gun shop and was browsing and chatting with the archery section guys and mentioned my fight over Ted. Thinking I would get support from these guys, I was shocked when they told me that they disposed the man. First of all, they told me that they think he sponsors subpar products on his show. Last time I checked, Matthews bows and GoldTip arrows aren't subpar. They also told me that they think he gives a bad name to hunters and gun owners everywhere by always making inflammatory comments about it on tv. Finally, they say that he is impossible to contact personally and only ever interacts with his fans if it is in some marketing event. I just want to share by personal opinion of him. I loved Ted growing up and he is the reason why I started playing the guitar. I have seen him live maybe a dozen times and have a lot of signed records from him. I also watch Spirit of the Wild regularly. Saying that though, I do find some of his television antics about" sacred earth flesh" and other weird sayings a little hokey. I also disagree with about 90% of his opinions on gun control. Also, the allegations of his hunting law violations are troubling to say the least. So what I'm basically getting at is what are your opinions of Ted Nugent? Do you think that celeberties like him, who claim to represent the hunters and gun owners in America, are causing people to dislike hunters? Do you also think that he is a premonition for how hunting is going an will soon just all become commercial marketing? Sorry for the long post. I might just be rambling but I sort of wanted to get these ideas out there and talked about.
