THE NO VACANCY BATTLECRY!
By: Ted Nugent
NO VACANCY! No room at the inn! FullUp! I’m sorry, we are plum overloaded here, you will have to find somewhere else to live.
With more deer, cougar, bear, wild turkey, geese and other game in North America than ever in recorded history, the expansive wildlife habitat across the land is filled to the max with every critter it can possibly support.
There simply is No Vacancy!
Even elk, bison and in some regions, moose, wild sheep and pronghorn are currently in numbers better than in more than 100 years. I am convinced that these are indeed the good old days of hunting in America.
There is, in reality, no place in North America that can handle any more deer, elk, bison, cougar or most game critters. The habitat is literally full-up.
This past season I had the best dove hunting, squirrel hunting, waterfowl hunting, deerhunting and bear hunting I have had in more than 60 years of chasing critters. I had so much fun I could hardly stand myself!
As I gear up for my Sonic Baptizm tour across America all summer long preparing to perform my 6,574th concert, I have to come to grips with the fact that I won’t be able to hunt with my beloved dogs every day for a while. I won’t be able to check my trapline every morning, hunt hogs, exotics and varmints, or take my daily walks in my sacred swamps and woodlands or commune with the precious wildlife that gives me so much life.
