    Nugent is sort of a tool. And a dull one at that. But he is a heck of a PR machine. To me, he carries the same weight as a movie star when it comes to politics. Well, maybe a bit less.

    + 1000.

    Mr. Nugent is embarrassing every hunter, shooter, and gun collector in the country.
    Not to mention disgracing his position as an NRA director, and the NRA in general.

    He needs to forget the guns and illegal hunting for his TV show and go back and play guitar or something to make money.
    He used to be really good at that.

    Right now, he is hurting all hunters & gun owners, Big Time.

    He got carried away and crossed a line at NRA. He'll be marginalized even further than ever.

    Crossed the line at the NRA?
    Thats hard to do.
    He tripped and fell down over the line, flat on his face!

    And then these hunting violation debacles coming to the surface right now on top of that!!

    Let us have Mercy!!

    I don't quite understand it. He has more disposable income than the majority of US Citizens yet he chooses a somewhat shady venue to further his hunting ventures. He could of hired any number of reputable guides to ensure a quality legal hunt. It seems as though he forfeited the "spirit of the wild" for the "spirit of the kill".

    I must admit to being firmly out of the loop on this one.

    What did the Nuge say?

    Yes, just as many people on this forum are hurting the cause. If we want to further the cause we need to educate, not alienate.

    It may be more. The CA information is shared by agreement with 35 states that can other states' violations, not that they always do it.

    The sad thing is, he had the recognition and exposure with both young & old voters to be another Charleston Heston / Robert Stack type leader & spokesman for the NRA, hunting, and all gun owners.

    Now, he has done enough damage to all three to provide ammo for the anti-gun industry for the next 3 or 4 elections!

    There's that old saying about it's better to appear to be a fool, rather than opening one's mouth and removing all doubt. Time to shut up and plan, and a time to speak. This was a time to shut up.

    He's a kook and not a positive image for gunowners or the 2A cause.

    He will make little to no difference in the biggest thing we have faced in many years, Novembers election.

    After that, yea, he needs to think more and say yes, and I am a Nugent fan. I love his hardcore stance, and his willingness to stand up and say what he believes in, but he sure can shoot his mouth/foot off sometimes.

    I've nearly always felt outa his particular loop regardless of shared hobbies, activities or passions.

    The odd thing is, I can nearly always agree with the general content of what he has to say but the delivery nearly always embarrasses me by proxy.

    As an example, I don't want to nor do I ever disassociate myself from hunting but I absolutely want to disassociate myself from Ted's method of expressing his perspective on hunting.

    It looks like he wounded a bear and later continued to hunt and filled his tag which was deemed by the state to be filled by the wounding.
    Illegal baiting in California, what does that mean? He lives in Texas and Michigan that both allow baiting.
    Ignorance is no excuse but Uncle Ted doesn't just pull his old Mini Wini out to some spot on the NF and set up camp, he had guides or hosts that should have done him a hell of a lot better than they did. I know of no state that I have hunted that curtails a hunt after wounding and I have never hunted a state that allowed bait but have taken advantage of fields, orchards, and other attractants, knowing how jacked up CA laws are I would like to see more info on the case.
    At any rate this is more just another case of the media cranking up the volume on a side show to divert attention to the fact that the country is on fire, reading these posts prove that in spades.

    I think more people are bothered by his recent political comments than the bear hunting, X-rap.

    Unfortunately, when you have a high-profile gun owner say those sort of things at a gun rights organization gathering, it comes across as representing the members of that organization and gun owners a whole. Metaphors or not, he said some pretty stupid stuff.

    That right there is by far the worst damage he has done by his stupidity.

    I still like him though he does need to calm down a little bit.
