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 popular writings.
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.
