Rocker Ted Nugent pleads no contest to deer-baiting charge

Rock star and noted hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 in Yuba County Superior Court Friday after pleading no contest to charges of baiting deer and not having a properly signed hunting tag, according to the Los Angeles Times. The charges arose following an incident last year in which Nugent was filmed killing an immature buck on an episode of his hunting show, Spirit of the Wild, which airs on the Outdoor Channel. An investigation found that Nugent and his co-defendants, Mitchell Moore and Ross Patterson, had baited the area using a wildlife attractant called “C’Mere Deer,” in violation of California law.

    Say it ain’t so! Not the Republican lovin Elephant azz kisser with superior morals to all, how can it be? Oh yeah he’s just another republican……

    • MU

      He’s just another casulty of another dumb, usless California law designed to phase out hunting. Any other state & it wouldn’t have happened.

      • Mea

        There should be a law to phase out Nugent.

        Um yeah it would I am hundreds of miles away from California and it would happen in my state ( North Dakota). You can get big fines, obviously even up here for no tags, property invasion, hunting within a certain radius of houses, no license, wrong sex of deer on your license. Trust me I go hunting with my dad every November. OH and contrary to belief Democrats do like to hunt. Im an example.

        Alyssa, I’m not a fan of hunting at all, but hopefully your hunting style isn’t cowardly and cruel, like this disgusting knuckle-dragger.

      Ted Nugent may be a Republican but I guarantee you Michael Vick is a Democrat.

      • deerpark243

        Pleading no contest is the same thing as pleading guilty.

      • rhybeckah

        He shouldn’t have done it in the first place.

  • Old Nimrod

    He always has been clueless to what real hunting edicate is.
    Big mouth Ted is a legend in his own mind.
    Sportsmen and women have called him a slob hunter for years now so it doesn’t surprise anyone.

      nothing personal, but seek help. You do know that most people view republicans such as Ted scary right?

  • Walt

    Cali’s DNR should understand that baiting deer is the very best way to insure a clean kill with out the suffering of the animal. Of course the agenda is to stop all hunting in Cali and what a better way to go about doing that but to make sure shots are difficult and animales are wounded and die a slow death or become crippled. Hunting has been a part of this country before it was a country. Unless you are a vegitarian being anti hunting is silly. Hunting connects familys in a way that a lib would not understand but I challenge anyone to find a gangbanger or a drug user with a hunting permit in his pocket. Of course in Cali both are more excepted than the hunter.By the way I think I herd something about Texas DNR donating about $1,750 to Teds favorite charity(whackem and Stackem)

    • Mea

      Anyone who goes out and kills something for fun/sport deserves to be hunted and killed themselves.

      • dee

        I agree. Wouldn’t that be something for the tables to be turned and have the animals hunt those who do it for “fun” and see how it feels. Ted Nugent, what a disappointment.

    • Alyssa

      Really Walt? you sure. Im a ” Lib” and I go hunting every year with my father. And we are both ” Liberal Dems”. Fickle Republicans. I feel sorry your gullible heads.
