I have always like the nugge (ted nugget) his interview in this is right on in my opinion. I know some think he is weird and too extreem but with that aside the second amendment I feel he is right on. lets hear some of your thoughts on his out look. Like I said I'm all for this way of thought. just thought I would share.

I have always agreed with The "Nudge" He's a good representative for the rights of Gun toting Americans and the American Hunter.

Although I would agree that he is out there, aren't we all a little. I know I am at times. I enjoy watching his show because he is so passionate about the hunt and those good ol backstraps. :biggrin:

Just because a nut case arees with something that you believe in, doesn't mean he's not a nut case! Sure, he represents our 2nd amendment rights and beliefs, but does more harm than good in making folks who might be neutral on the subject think we are all nuts like he is. We don't need that kind of representation. I'll speak for myself, thank you very much.

I won't ever believe for one minute Ted Nugent has ever done more harm than good, I try to keep up with his talks as often as possible.
Ted Nugent has the ability to gain the spotlight when needed he may be a nutcase and overly outspoken but he sure has stood up to everyone that challenged "our" gun toting rights.
People like us (non entertainers) don't have the luxury of being able to speak to the masses but he does, he always manages to wake up the "sleeping Americans" when he has to and he never hesitates to stand up when the 2nd amendment comes under attack. Like the nutcase or not his voice will be heard and as long as it's protecting and defending "our" 2nd amendment rights and our hunting privileges, I say more power to the man, nutcase or not.

nicely said bruce. :thumbup: the 2nd amendment is worth fighting for and what not a better stand point than a celeb. stand point:boxing: he can reach more than we ever thought about. and as far as nut I dont think so I do think hes more pasionate than most all of us. but if we all had ted's kinda money and could spend most of the rest of our lifes hunting and fishing and not work we would all probable fall right into the life style of ted now. or tred barta for that matter.so dont bash him for what he is able to do and you or me cant!!

yea, Ted is a little out there with his spiritual stuff but right on target with his views on freedom. He probably does scare off a few but for the most part I think he does good for us.

definitely one of my favorite outdoor hosts "long live the beast and backstraps". Yes a little on the weird and mysterious but he's Ted Nugent.

"I dont like repeat offenders, I like dead offenders."

His closing line got a chuckle out of me. Extreme he may be but he makes some very good points on alot of stuff. Cool clip.

Look, guys, I agree that Ted is passionate about the 2nd Amendment and that he gets his word out there because of his celebrity. But here's what I mean when I say he does more harm than good.
In the U.S.A. there are only three groups when it comes to the whole guns/hunting issue: the gun owners/hunters (us), the anti-gun owner/hunters and the non-gun owners/hunters. This last group is the largest by far. It's important to remember this because most of them can move in either direction on these issues. Since the percentage of hunters has been decreasing for years (kids rather play with their i-pods and be indoors) our place in America's future is not bright.
People who are on the extremes. Let's say the nut cases, like PETA on one side and Nugent on the other, tend to move the neutral folks away from their cause. They don't just turn people off, they move them in the opposite direction. Basically, Nugent sounds good to lots of hunters, and the PETA spokespeople sound just as good to the vegans, etc. But they are both just "preaching to the choir" while offending the folks in the middle. I have seen this happen countless times in my life - never once have seen bashing people over the head change their minds one bit.
To use an oft repeated phrase, "We need to win the hearts and minds" of these people who are in the middle - who by the way will be voting for or against hunting and gun laws, and when the time for that comes, I would much rather have them remembering a persuasive logical discussion than reacting to some rantings, threats and insults from a self-appointed representative of gun owners who they heard on TV, or You-Tube or read about in a magazine.
In my personal dealings with anti-gun or anti-hunting folks, I try to let them say what they believe, and then present rational arguments mixed with thought-provoking questions. Sort of a give-and-take approach. People listen to you if they believe you are listening to them. My bet in all of this is that my reasoning is better than theirs and that even if I bring them just a little closer to my way of thinking, or even just solidify their neutral position, I will have made progress in preserving our future as gun owners and hunters.
If the best we can do is advocate the hard line, we really aren't that different from the PETA types. The strategy and approach being basically the same. What we should try to do is impress people with logical beliefs, rational arguments, and in so doing win converts to our cause. Sometimes it's not what you say, but how you say it.

I can back his views cause for the most part i think he, the nuge, has taken the right stand but I find him personally abrasive. I'm kinda with onehorse on this issue when it comes to me talking over the issue with anyone. but that being said there is the old saying you fight fire with fire. If the antis are pumping millions into their cause and doing all these things to get on the news and such, is not a way to combat this is to fight fire with fire. If the extremes of the right stay quite all that is heard is the extremes of the left. kinda a double edge sword

look all celebs are bigger than life, thats why they are celebs. at least he not jumping up and down on Opra's coutch telling people who are mentaly ill not to take there meds. yes he is harsh but he makes good lodgical points to. if the penituly for pedifils was geting tide up in a sound proof room and left with the kids dad, there would be alot less sex offenders, and zero repeat offenders, ya its harsh, but the perverts deserve it, not the kids.

i going to get banned for that aint i.

Onehorse I agree with some of what you're saying and I understand that not everyone is going to be a Ted Nugent rocker fan or supporter
but Ted Nugent as a Hunter? I would think you and all hunters would encourage and promote his efforts...
I think it's better to educate the non-gun owners and the non-hunters with real facts versus letting them become
brainwashed by the lies the Anti's constantly throw at them.

Ted Nugent is VERY abrasive, sometimes overly abrasive and too outspoken and at times "I" even wish he'd shut his mouth and let the subject settle down some,, but he doesn't ever lie to the public or try to exagerate the facts.

I think for the most part the majority of people concerned are well educated and intelligent beings capable of making proper choices based on facts vs. fiction...
IF any one of them are interested enough to listen to either side,, I'd much rather Ted stand up and be heard vs. the anti's.
Nobody can make a clear decision if the facts are are cloudy, gray and unclear and only coming from one side...

The following Videos are a few of my personal Ted Nugent Favorites and one video by Suzanna Gratia Hupp... Her story needs to be heard over and over and over again...

I'm in the middle with the nuge, some of his baiting and shooting lends himself to the anti's but I like his 2nd ammendment backing. He is out there and I understand you either like him or not.
