Anyone who caught my impromptu appearance this morning on CHEZ 106 FM’s Doc & Woody Show, knows how I feel regarding Ted Nugent’s antics on the new television show PigMan.
In his appearance on the new show, Uncle Ted is seen strapped into a helicopter; armed with an assault rifle shooting wild hogs with wild abandon…all the while being serenaded to the theme from Apocalypse Now in an episode they’re calling ‘Aporkalypse Now’.
“I love the smell of bacon in the morning. It smells like victory…”
“Let there be pork!”
Ok, I have always been a supporter of Ted and I get that there are 2.5 million wild hogs creating havoc in the State of Texas, but picking them off with an M40 Assault rifle from a helicopter?
Mehh….that’s is a little over the top even for Ted Nugent.
Now don’t get me wrong, according to the TV show it is perfectly legal to pursue pigs this way and judging by the number of hogs they have the ground, its highly effective as well.
It is just something that I don’t personally agree with and I’ve been a hunter for over 30 years. I doubt many folks here in Canada would agree with it either, but I could wrong.
Here’s the video clip if you haven’t seen it yet:
