HAPPY TOOTH FANG & CLAW PERFECTION AMERICA-
CELEBRATE NATIONAL HUNTING AND FISHING DAY by Ted Nugent
It is upon us, and there is not a damn thing anyone can do about it. Call me weird, but I do wintertime stuff each winter, springtime stuff each spring, summertime stuff each summer, and hallelujah, fall hunting season stuff everyday each fall hunting season. I can’t help myself. I’m such a hopelessly organic nature boy. There really is a call of the wild Martha, and I hear it loud and clear.
I hunt because I am a hunter. Clearly such natural participation in God’s miraculous creation is the last perfect, pure and positive environmental activity available to mankind. Balancing the annual wildlife explosion through respectful sustain yield utility is universally known to be the perfection that it is. Know it, cherish it, celebrate it and by all means, do it. Life is not meant to be a spectator sport ya all.
For our 38th glorious year in a row, ever since President Nixon established National Hunting and Fishing Day back in 1972, American sporting families have celebrated this incredible hands on conservation lifestyle as the most obvious renewable resource management success story in the history of mankind. Though the hunting industry has failed miserably at effectively promoting or educating anyone to this annual celebration, America’s sixty million hunting, fishing and trapping families and all our friends know in our hearts and souls what an amazing lifestyle we share.
With more deer, elk, cougars, black bears, wild turkey and geese and other game than ever in recorded history, astonishingly these are the ultimate good old days of hunting in North America.
Annually, we kill so many more deer and other big and small game each year that we continue, through our Hunters For The Hungry program, to donate more than 250 million supreme quality meals of the healthiest, most nutritious and delicious organic protein available anywhere to soup kitchens and homeless shelters all across America. 250 million every year my friends. And most notably without Fedzilla getting his greedy, unaccountable, corrupt and wasteful bureaucracies involved. If that’s not a joy to celebrate I don’t know what is. Instances of E-coli and or salmonella? Zero, zilch, nada, none. We the hunting people get it. Perfect.
Wherever proven science based hunting management is implemented, thriving, balanced wildlife flourishes. Where the soulless maniacs and animal rights goons interfere, you have wildlife and humans slaughtered on the highways, people and livestock mauled and killed, commercial aircraft crashing and gazillions of tax dollars wasted on fantasy driven damage control and clean up.
We deal in living, breathing dynamic creatures, not Bambi and Boo Boo cartoons. Go figure.
Clearly, hunters stand on the good side of the line drawn in the sand. I couldn’t be more proud.
Wildlife can only be one of two things; an asset or a liability. In every instance since sporters demanded the halt of the commercial slaughter of our precious wildlife in the early 1900’s and created and financed the modern wildlife management agencies, we have rehabilitated and safeguarded millions upon millions of acres of sacred grounds to not only provide critical habitat for our beloved game species, but for untold species of non-game and endangered critters as well.
It is important to educate and remind every human being willing to listen, that our quality of life, that is our quality of our air, soil and water come from the soul cleansing wild ground of our wildlife habitat that every hunter, fisher and trapper monitor and pay dearly to provide. The vast majority of funds for such habitat and wildlife management comes from our licenses, permits, tags and purchases of hunting and fishing equipment. Every American who cherishes healthy wildlife owes a huge debt of gratitude to the hunters, fishers and trappers of America. Know it.
The Nugent family is giddy with excitement as we sharpen our arrows and sight in our firearms in anticipation of what we know will be the greatest hunting season of our lives. This honorable heritage is not only a perfect system by which we feed our sacred temples and those of our fellow Americans, but the incredible recreational opportunities do indeed re-create our spirit each fall and winter.
Celebrate Thanksgiving everyday my friends. If you are not a hunter, you really need to unleash that natural reasoning predator within and participate in this wonderful annual sport and lifestyle. It is there for everyone willing to dedicate themselves to be the best that they can be.
Me, I’m stocking up on ammo, arrows, garlic and butter. Happy hunting season 2010 to all my Spirit of the Wild BloodBrothers. Whack em and stack em, kill em and grill em. It’s perfect.

I wanted to comment on the first two animals I have harvested this year and the performance of the new Code Red Ripcord rest. I have been incredibly impressed with this new version of an already great rest. The rest gives me perfect flight and when I am spot and stalk hunting through the woods of western Colorado, the arrow is held perfectly by the rest. This is by far the best rest I have ever hunted with. Add that to the character and commitment of the Don and Keith Dvoroznak and I would never shoot another rest. Go get one and you will not be disappointed.

I went to the archery outpost to buy some arrows a couple of weeks ago for my recurve bow and I took my bow with me. I found out a week later that acording to the Easton Arrow chart that this arrow spine is way too week for the poundage that I was shooting. I took the arrows back and showed the shop manager at the Archery Outpost the easton chart and what it recommended. The shop manager said that he was not an expert on recurve bows and that he would have to call someone. The funny thing is that he was the guy who recommended that arrow to me in the first place. He then called a guy on his cell phone and asked him his opinion but I could not hear the conversation and basically said that I was fine. These arrows were in excellent shape and I asked to swap them out with the correct size arrows as shown on the Easton chart. Shop manager said no but said he could order me the correct ones and help me out a little. Long story short, I will never ever go back there again. I drove down to Pat’s Archery right then and they had a ton of people working there and they hooked me up on some carbon arrows that shot ten times better than the aluminum ones. All I got to say is that if you live in the Tulsa area and you bow hunt go to Pat’s.

HI! im sarah and im fifteen(: i wrote this for huntinglife.com it got accepted and also got me on their prostaff. i was thinking about sending it to eastmans. tell me what you guys think.
The big day, October 2nd is here. The leaves are green with hints of yellow and the air is warm. I hike through the woods to my tree stand; the warm air smothers me with a feeling of peace. Getting away from the grind of life and into the woods for a few hours brings me to an absolute bliss. Although the weather is pleasant I get cold chills because the feelings the outdoors brings to me. Even if I do not bring a deer home with me, I will not return home low-spirited but I will feel cleansed and refreshed. As the season goes by, I may kill a few deer but that’s not all that brings me excitement. Just seeing nature’s changes is enough to thrill me. Watching the leaves go from green, to yellow, orange, and red, then watching them slowly disappear off the trees and the ground transform into a red, orange, and yellow mixture. I’ve learned the beauty of the hunt can be just an exciting as the kill itself.
As a child, responsibility isn’t a strong point. But it may be gained much faster and stronger if the child hunts. Hunting is a sport that involves weapons and they can’t be treated as toys. And as a child I was taught to treat every gun as if it was loaded. I’ve learned patience and how to be stealthy. Learning all the ways to hunt such as walking quietly by rolling you foot, when to be ready to draw back, when to stand up, how to correctly use deer estrus, how to scan the area in search for deer, and many other difficult techniques. I remember to practice these each time I go out and hunt. I want every technique I know to be mastered.
Hunting has taught me about respect. Not the yes sir and no ma’am kind of respect that I was taught when I was young. But I have learned to respect the outdoors, to respect my states laws and people who own the land I hunt on. I put myself in the landowners position and think “I wouldn’t enjoy people disrespecting my land.” And I remember to treat others as I would like to be treated. Wildlife is beautiful and I see it on TV getting ruined by oil spills or enormous clear-cuts. It hurts me to think of all the beauty that humans are destroying through their greediness. The woods that I know will never vanish in my generation are my sanctuary. And I sympathize for the people who can’t enjoy the forest or animals in the wild because they live in the city. They just don’t understand how hunting truly can change a person’s life.
My dad and I have bonded tremendously through the outdoors. We fish, hike, hunt, or anything else we can find that’s outside. Really, all our time spent together is doing these activities. He has taught me a lot of things from tying a strong slip-knot for fishing to how to shoot my boy correctly. My Granddad has also taught me many useful things. He owned a sporting goods store in the seventies and he was also a park ranger, he goes to Montana to shoot prairie dogs once a year and buys me books and magazines to help me learn as much as I can. My granddad takes me out to the rifle range and we shoot skeet, pistols, and rifles. All the old men up there let me try out there guns. Without my dad and granddad I doubt I would know all I do. And without the outdoors, I wouldn’t be nearly as close with them as I am.
Another of the many great traits I have gained from the outdoors is hard work pays off. Two years ago on my first hunting trip alone I missed a doe. I blame it on myself because I hadn’t practiced like I should have. That disappointment lit me up and I was determined to be the best shot I could be. All summer I shot and shot. Finally the chance came for me to prove that my hard work actually meant something. I shot at my second deer at 42 yards while standing on my knees, turned around backwards in my tree stand. My heart sank; I knew I had shot to low and missed. I pulled out my cell phone and called my dad to tell him to help me look for my arrow, it could be anywhere. He came down to the clearing where I had shot and we looked a long time for that arrow that was nowhere to be seen. I searched and searched, but I found something a million times better than an arrow. Blood. A smile hit my face so hard that I couldn’t even speak. My dad noticed and he looked at me like I was crazy. I found the words and told him about what I spotted. That was the start of our night. I had barely nicked the lungs and he ran a little ways but eventually we found him. A little spike but I didn’t care; I had a kill under my belt. I was so proud.
Hunting isn’t for everyone, but if you love it and get out there you can learn some of the most important qualities a person can earn in their life. The beauty of nature, responsibility, respect, the value of family and friends, and that hard work truly does pay off. These aren’t the only things a hunter can learn, but they are some of the most precious characteristics.

Top 7 Articles about Preseason Exercise for Deer Hunters
This post started as an update to my post titled, “Are you physically ready for deer season?” While writing the update, I decided to make it a standalone and more complete post by compiling much of the best hunting training and exercise information that I have found.
Soon it will be summer and you will be thinking about ways to keep cool, such as fishing and swimming and not about exercise. So, I wanted to get this post out to you, so that you can do some leisurely reading and begin you non-leisurely work out before it gets too hot.
As for me, deer hunting and preseason exercise do not usually go hand in hand. Now that I am getting older (and hopefully wiser), I am starting to think about creative ways to become more fit, especially for deer season. One of the main reasons that I am interested in this is that we often hunt in Greene County, PA. This area is known for very steep hills and great deer hunting (of course!). So, needless to say we have to do a lot of walking up and down these steep hills during the season.
When I think of our successful hunts in Greene County, I always remember being out of breath and sweating like a fiend when we drag the deer out of the hills. Did you know that when deer hunting you can easily be carrying over 50lbs of gear when you go out into the woods? Next imagine carrying all that gear and having to drag a trophy whitetail deer out from your secret stand that’s over 1/2 mile away from your truck or camp. This is no place to have a heart attack. Physical health and fitness are essential for an enjoyable, safe deer hunt. Even beyond the safety aspect, physical health and fitness can make you a better hunter and even a better shooter as described in some of the articles listed below.
DuckBuckGoose wrote a great article “Getting Fit – Better Hunting” on this subject. He offers great details and advice on how and why to lose the weight prior to deer season and he provides guidance about how to set tangible goals. Plus, he has a great use of the word, “svelte” in his article! “Svelte” is way too underutilized in hunting blogs!
DuckBuckGoose provides a great summary of why getting fit is important for hunting for him: “One of my goals is to be a better hunter this year than I was last year. One of the ways I want to accomplish that is by losing weight – so I can move more efficiently and quietly through my hunting ground, and leave less scent in the air by not having to breath as hard. Plus, by losing weight I know I’ll have more energy, look better, feel better and possibly even get more years to hunt down the road.”
Mark provides a really cool video in his blog post: Off Season Training for Buck Fever. In the video, he offers a great suggestion to help simulate buck fever, while practicing shooting your bow. Personally, I have never experienced buck fever, so I will just take his word for it (I am joking, of course!). The video is well worth the watch. I have embedded the video at the bottom of this post. I will have to try his training suggestion. I am a bit older than he, so I will need a lot more cardio.
Craig begins his training on Memorial Day weekend. He uses this early start to scout, set up trail cams, check his equipment, and to begin shooting his bow. He suggests some off season exercise routines. Craig points out that he weighed himself one day with gear and discovered that he was carrying 57 pounds of hunting equipment with him!
Craig points out that in the Volunteer Hunters Study , an amazing study by the Department Lacrosse Exercise and Health Program, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, the researchers found that “during the dragging test, the heart rates of the men jumped to as high as 180 beats a minute, about 95% of their maximum heart rate, after just five minutes of dragging. Their breathing rates exceeded their ventilatory thresholds, meaning that they were taking in oxygen faster than they could use it.”
Craig notes that “It seems like everything I’ve read lately talks about how heart attacks are the biggest killer among hunters, even more than careless hunting practices. Things like falls, being in remote areas, environmental stresses (heat, cold, wind, rain or snow), body abuse, heavy clothes, greater load and poor diet can all contribute to heart attacks. With all the gear we carry and dragging out a deer can cause more stress than the heart can handle. … Plus, hunting is so much more fun and safer when you’re not tired or out of breathe. It’s like any other sport; you play better if you are in shape.”
4. Hunting Preparation Is More Than Just Equipment from CreatingTheLuck.com
The author notes that many hunters pay very close attention to their exhaustive gear checks and endless checklists, but often neglects their physical fitness checks. He points out that good fitness can provide you with a “higher tolerance to climbing mountains and a higher degree of cold tolerance as well. This is one facet that many hunters neglect to consider in their preparation.
If a hunter is in good shape, he tends to tolerate the cold better.” At CreatingTheLuck, they have also created some hunting fitness videos. I have not viewed or reviewed the videos, so I cannot comment on them.
5. Hunting Fitness Program Getting Fit For Deer Season posted at DeerHuntingBigBucks.com
In this article, the author suggests getting a physical by a doctor before beginning the exercise routine. I think that this is a great idea, since it can reduce the chances of surprises. He points out that we are not always the most health conscience at deer camp so he suggests getting in shape well beforehand. He suggests a mix of cardio, jogging, and lifting weights.
6. My Fitness | Backcountry Mule Deer Hunting Basics by David Dukat from Fitness.Body-money.com
David’s article relates mainly to mule deer hunting, but a lot of information can also apply to whitetail deer hunting too. He notes when preparing for a mule deer hunt to be in the best shape of your life or at least the best shape you have been in the last five years. Wow! I got some work to do to get there!
7. Physical Fitness and Quality Hunting by James Altiere at OutdoorAlabama.com
In this article James (a Regional Hunter Education Coordinator in Alabama) notes that some of the hunting seasons in Alabama start in the heat of late summer. So, being in shape is critical in the heat. This is something that I hadn’t thought of, since we usually do not experience much of that intense heat during hunting up here in PA, but I am sure some of my readers have to consider this too.
He comments, “physical fitness is a requirement to make hunting more enjoyable. Physical fitness levels in hunters are personal responsibilities and fitness and health change with age. To be a safe and responsible hunter you must know your limitations. And remember, hunting is a recreation to be enjoyed, not a competition to be won.”
