Famous rock music personality and also social media phenomenon, Ted Nugent posted a new photo of his beloved wife, Shemane Nugent while she is hunting.

Ted Nugent also penned a long letter and responded to harsh critics about him and his wife. He claimed that if everyone was responsible for procuring their sustenance, lots of people would be less wasteful – and healthier.

Here is the letter of Ted:

“Repost from @shemanenugent using – There’s a growing % of people who want to be self-sufficient and live off the land. According to Forbes magazine, the grass-fed meat industry has increased 30% annually in the past decade.

People flock to grocery stores to buy grass-fed and free-range meat because the wild game that has the opportunity to run free is healthier and it isn’t full of antibiotics or steroids. Even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says “Meat tastes better when you hunt it yourself.” But it’s not easy.

He continued:

“Months and years of practice and hours of preparation go into just one hunt. You sit, and sit and wait, and sit some more. To be able to draw a bow when eyes and ears are on you is almost impossible. You have to be proficient, stealthy and graceful. During the hours and hours in an oftentimes cold and quiet tree stand, I repeat the Bible verses that proclaim hunting is ok by God: Genesis 9:3 “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you”. Genesis 27:3 “Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.” I know I’ll get some hate from this post, but I want to be open about this “other life” I have.”

Ted also shared the details of why he’s hunting, rather than buying a meal from the store.

Here is how he continued:

“Honestly, I am jazzed that I can provide my family, friends, my community, the military and homeless with the gift of pure, lean sustenance. Hunters donate millions of pounds of meat through Hunters for the Hungry program. We send tons of jerky overseas to our military. We donate sacred nutrition to our churches and communities.  That’s pretty darn cool!

We don’t waste food. How many times have you pushed excess food off your plate and into the trashcan? We don’t. If everyone was responsible for procuring their sustenance, how many of us would be less wasteful –  and healthier?

Yeah, I’m a hunter and I’m proud. I didn’t buy grassfed meat at the grocery store. I got my own with a sharp stick. #hunter #hunternation #womenwhohunt
