Nugent fined for California deer hunt

August 17, 2010 at 09:31 PM

MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Rocker and celebrity hunter Ted Nugent will have to pay a $1,750 fine after pleading no contest in California to baiting a deer and not having a properly signed hunting tag.

California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy says game wardens saw Nugent kill an immature buck on a February episode of his Outdoor Channel TV show “Spirit of the Wild.”

Investigators found that the deer had been eating bait called “C’mere Deer.” Baiting wildlife is illegal in California.

Nugent, who lives near Waco, Texas, had originally faced 11 charges, including killing a deer too young to be hunted. In a deal with Yuba County prosecutors, Nugent’s attorney on Friday entered no contest pleas to the two misdemeanors.

Nugent did not appear in court. A spokeswoman for the musician did not immediately return messages late Tuesday.

wish it was illegal in illinois. to me using bait to draw deer is cheating and unethical. its supposed to be hunting not sitting in a tree and tricking deer into eating some non natural crapola

Wow just wow isn’t he running around being an advocate for ethical hunting? Didn’t our very own DNR try and use him to promote hunting in this state? I wonder what all the charges were that his plea agreement got him out of? Guess his ratings must have been down so he needed to get a kill to make himself look good.

Yeah wild bill that stuff is illegal to hunt over in Illinois, yet every sporting goods store is loaded with it, makes me wonder just how many people use it, cause if it didn’t sell they wouldn’t stock it.
