Ted Nugent has agreed that he violated Alaska's curious law that says if you wound an animal - even slightly - it becomes yours, even if you don't recover it. So, when Ted took a second bear, he broke the law. See all the trouble Ted is in here.

If that was a law everywhere we'd all be screwed. I have a few arrows that have been covered in brisket hair. :frusty:

"...we'd all be screwed." Only if we wounded an animal and then killed another. On the surface the law's intent is clear but enforcing such a law is problematic - unless, of course, there's video evidence, as in Uncle Ted's case. If he's not more careful in the future, he's going to run out of places to hunt, since he's already been barred from numerous other states for previous encounters with the law. Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 in Yuba County, California Superior Court after pleading no contest to a charge of baiting deer on his hunting show “Spirit of the Wild.” With that guilty plea, he lost hunting rights in many states under a compact agreement with California and the states that cooperate.

I'm getting the feeling that Ted feels that he knows better than what the law states. He apparently has either a god complex or some really stupid advisors on his show.

While I realize some laws are confusing, Ted's gotta be smarter. As vocal as he is, he makes it tougher on the common man. I know if I were to make a "mistake" like some that Ted has made, it would be plastered all over the newpaper. That fear keeps me straight with the law.

Some of both........

Lately he's been on a tear about everyone and everything. I'll be honest, he's just saying what many Americans are afraid to say out loud. Many of you guys may disagree how he goes about things but his opinion regarding politicians and the sad state our country is in reflects MANY of our feelings right now. He just has the guts to say them. As far as the laws he broke go, the California "baiting" offense was a synthetic spray being used. No real mention of the product or the name had come to light I've seen. I think he should be fully charged with breaking any game laws as he's no better than anyone else. That part I don't support.

FIGHT !!!!

I agree s#!t does happen, Ted definitly needs someone with him when filming (or hunting on his own apparently) that knows the game laws. I understand that the latest offense was for transporting a unlawfully killed bear. As he had wounded the first bear and the limit is one bear that was his tag. As he then shot and killed a second bear(the one he transported) he's guilty plain and simple. I also understand that he has pled that guilty to that offense as well.

I dunno...sex with underage girls, constantly breaking the law, making stupid comments about the president, crapping his pants to dodge the draft.

Personally I think we put this guy on a pedestal like the black community did with Michael Jackson and fail to see how screwed up he is.

I don't. I see him for what he is. Someone who thinks he's above the law and can do whatever he wants. Hardly a person we want representing us and our interests in my opinion.

You know what they say about opinions though. ;)

Ted's under a magnifying glass, because of his mouth and antics. And, because of that, anti-hunters, or anyone that opposes Ted-think, love to exploit his wrongs for all to see just how we hunters "really" are. He's out there for all to see. Personally, I don't want to be painted with that brush, or in other words, I don't want him as my representative, either.

Update:

"I would never knowingly break any game laws," said Ted Nugent. "I'm afraid I was blindsided by this, and I sincerely apologize to everyone for this."

Said Magistrate Judge Michael Thompson "It (the "one-strike policy) probably is not widely known, and if there is a side benefit to the agreement reached here today - since apparently newspapers are interested in Mr. Nugent and his doings - this probably will serve to alert a great many hunters to that very issue and may, in fact, prevent violations in the future and court activity for a whole slew of folks."

I'm sure it has alerted many people to the one strike law, but the law was broken jusrt the same. and a penalty should be paid.

Any word on that ?

Oh, yeah. Under the agreement, Nugent must pay a $10,000 fine and serve two years of probation, including a special condition that he not hunt or fish in Alaska or on U.S. Forest Service properties for a year.

10,000 sounds steep but it's probably like a $500 fine to the rest of us.

All of Mr Ted's sponcers should drop him like a rock.....that would get more of his attention than the fine.
