MADISON — Hunter Nation, the fastest growing grassroots organization dedicated to protecting the right of hunters, has just booked the Motor City Madman — a rock icon synonymous with hunting — to serve as its national spokesman.
Hunter Nation on Thursday morning announced it has inked the deal with Ted Nugent, who has been an outspoken advocate for hunting rights for decades, and has taken on anti-hunting zealots in Hollywood and on the political front.
“Ted Nugent has been an icon in the hunting and outdoor community for decades and no one has fought harder to protect the rights of hunters than Uncle Ted,” said Hunter Nation President and CEO, Luke Hilgemann, who previously served as CEO of Americans for Prosperity. “We are beyond excited to officially partner with Ted to help us grow our army of hunters, increase our impact on policy, and continue to activate millions of American hunters to vote their values and protect our traditions – basically continuing the legacy Uncle Ted has built as the Ultimate BloodBrother!”
Nugent, a legend to many hard rock fans who has sold more than 40 million albums in his nearly 60-year career, has over the years taken center stage in promoting conservative values. He is a vehement defender of the Second Amendment.
In his role with Hunter Nation, Nugent will be featured in a “Nightly Nuge” segment that will appear on the group’s website in addition to speaking on their behalf at events and in the media, according to a press release.
“Being addicted to truth, logic, commonsense and the American Way for 72.6 years, I am compelled to stand up and shout it out loud and proud from every mountaintop I ascend every day,” Nugent said. “Freedom is not free and I want to earn it to the best of my ability and I am excited to be working with the Hunter Nation team to do just that.”
Keith Mark, Hunter Nation founder, said Nugent has dedicated his life to “protecting the values of God, Family, Country and our Hunting Traditions.”
“Hunter Nation is honored to have Ted on our team and know he will have a huge impact on our shared goals of protecting the American Hunter in the year ahead.”
The organization notes that, in the last year alone, it has “built an army of dedicated activists from all 50 states numbering in the hundreds of thousands. “
