This, according to reports from Kansas.com, where Ted Nugent has enjoyed bowhunting for several years each fall. This year, he won’t be killing anything in Kansas, the state in which Richard Christy was raised and ate roadkill.
Kevin Jones, a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks law enforcement chief, says that Nugent does have an archery deer permit for this current season, but after being convicted of hunting deer illegally in California, that permit has been rendered null and void.
Now, Ted — an outdoor television show host, outspoken supporter for hunting and firearms ownership rights and a spokesman for Great Bend-based Magnus Archery — has lost his ability to hunt there through June of 2012. That’s fucking awesome.
Kansas and California are part of a wildlife law enforcement compact of about 35 states. Usually when hunting or fishing privileges are revoked in one state the others also enforce the ban within their borders, Jones said. Ted is also in hot water for shooting pheasants in South Dakota.
