Ted Nugent was honored for two categories: Excellence in Bowhunting as
well as literary excellence. These categories acknowledge Nugent’s
widely acclaimed skill as an outdoorsman, and his promotion of
Bowhunting on an international level via his best selling books and
Ted Nugent began Bowhunting in the mid-1950s – approximately the same
time he picked up his first guitar. Nugent has gone on two wildly
successful careers in the two seemingly separate fields. But it makes
perfect sense to Ted.
“I started twanging the one-string “bout the same time as the 6-string,”
states Nugent. “There was some sort of bow & arrow in my hands as young
as six or seven, I’m sure. Got my first guitar around the same time, and
both have remained my favorite weapons to date!”
Nugent has sold in the excess of 35 million albums, produces and stars
in the award winning Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild TV show, is a New
York Times Bestselling author, and continues to set attendance records
at concert venues around the globe.
“The future of the shooting sports in the counter is in the hands of
tomorrow’s outdoorsmen and women. The youth of America must be educated
to the wholesome and valued world of hunting and conservation. Because
Rock n’ Roll plays such a pivotal; role in a young persons life, I will
share my wonderful life-style and experiences with them,” stated Ted.
Ted Nugent is recognized as America’s number one proponent of the Second
Amendment and was elected in 1995 to server on the NRA Board of
Directors, a position he honors to this day.
