Ted Nugent Testifies at Texas Deer Hunting Hearing


Ted Nugent Testifies at Texas Deer Hunting Hearing

Rock musician Ted Nugent has long been an advocate for hunter’s rights, and made a surprise appearance at a Texas House Committee meeting on Wednesday with a testimony that stole the show. According to The Dallas Morning News, the Committee on Culture, Recreation and Tourism was discussing a deer hunting bill, HB 2433, introduced by Representative John Davis (R-Houston). The bill would require deer breeders to release the animals into the wild at least 60 days before hunters hit the field. The current requirement is 10 days before hunting season.

Supporters of the bill included biologists, ranchers, and others who felt that the short period of time that the deer had to adjust was unethical. Opponents in the room argued that the bill would be a major blow to breeders, and limited sportsmen in hunting opportunities. The discussion became heated as the divided gathering argued over the finer points of the bill. It was towards the end that Nugent, dressed in a camouflage shirt and matching hat, stood up to give his testimony.

Introducing himself as an avid hunter, Nugent denounced the bill for the negative effects it would have on the state’s outdoor industry.

    So let me get this straight. We have millions and millions of illegal aliens flooding over the border, and infecting our society and destroying the culture, and they are debating the time that a privately-owned deer can be released for private hunting? Can you begin to see how mentally ill the people who run this government really are? Determining when a deer can be released onto private lands is not a function of government. It’s none of their business.

    To John Kugelfischer: Go hug a tree and eat vegetables and bean sprouts. And stop talking about subjects with which you are unfamiliar.

    Texas eh. Well they could always debate on the shooting of illegals and the bag limit. And of course the season which should run most of the year.

    Why were they not discussing year round open season on illegal immigrants and their entry points being the lands of hunt! Since the Border Patrol is no longer allowed to enforce the law on illegal entries let the Texas, Arizona and New Mexico hunters have a no limit shot at border control! You wanna bet me this will not bring it to a screeching halt! How much you wat to put on it!

    Lets ask the non hunters how many days they release the beef cows before they make hamburger out of them. Oh thats right they take them from one fenced area, that they were raised and truck them to the butcher shop or maybe have a butcher come right to the farm . If this Kugle nut doesn’t eat beef of any kind then maybe he should stay off the computer and go grow some vegetables.

    This subject is so not important, I can not believe there is actually a committee wasting my tax dollars discussing it.

    Y’all have to realize that Rep John Davis is a liberal plant. This is how the liberals get their agenda started in the red states. What we need to do is get a real conservative to replace ole JD there and then tackle the real issue of illeagal aleins. Will the real men please stand up.

    Our country would be better off without the 535 whom only look out for themselves and their bank accounts. This government is filled to the brim with crooks terrorist lovers, illegals, illegal lovers, gun haters, God haters, of all types and there is only a handful of politicans who loves this country and our Constitution.
