Rocker Ted Nugent: Hunters Are Conservationists

<< Back to Page 1   Page 2 of 2

Ted Nugent: Because the major networks and so many major publications in the world only expose the most callous and ugly examples of poaching and accidents in our sport. For every Bubba that poaches an elk in a national park, there's tens of millions of families conducting themselves in a safe, legal, ethical manner connecting with that natural tooth, fang and claw culture. I'm convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that the hunting community is always on the front line of environmental monitoring, therefore [has] an environmental awareness that will determine where pollution is striking, where habitat is being lost, where abuse of our natural resources is taking place.

Tom Foreman: Is it true that you haven't bought a steak in 30 years?

Ted Nugent: I haven't bought a domestic piece of flesh in about 30 years now because I feel that my sacred temple deserves the greatest fuel in the world and there's not only no better health food than venison and turkey and wildfowl, but hunting, trapping and fishing bring balance and health to the environment. My idea of fast food is a mallard.

Inside Base Camp's Tom Foreman on Work, Guests

Presidents and prisoners; scientists and soldiers; the heroic and the hated—all have sat down with National Geographic Channel Senior Anchor Tom Foreman as he has traveled the globe for the past 25 years. Starting out in small town radio in Alabama, he progressed through local television to join ABC Network News when he was 30. For a decade he covered virtually every major news story for World News Tonight, Nightline, 20/20 and Good Morning America.

Now, as host and managing editor of the Emmy Award-winning Inside Base Camp with Tom Foreman, he brings his years of experience—and dozens of riveting guests—to the National Geographic Channel at 12:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, and Sundays at 11:00 a.m.

As the show's name implies, Foreman asks the intimate, revealing questions that cut to core of the passions that drive his guests.
