Traditions: Spread Em'
When I picked up Blood Tails II: The Truth About Bowhunting, I knew it was going to be an exciting read, but I just didn't know how exciting it was going to be. As a deeply passionate bowhunter like I am, I've known Ted Nugent (Uncle Ted) as the forerunner of the sport, and by sport I mean it in a traditional sense; he is the Babe Ruth of bowhunting. Within these pages, he transfers all his various hunting adventures and personal knowledge onto paper and exemplifies the true meaning of bowhunting and the nature behind the common outdoorsman. Besides this, he stands up for hunting rights, degrades the rights of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), and why they are so pathetic and irrational about their responsibilities as people. Along with the stupidity of Anti-hunting activists, he articulates that nothing is more beautiful than Mother Nature, and that no "concrete jungle" can replenish that. His words make every outdoorsman tremble in excitement, because every statement, story and prophecy hits the heart. For this precise reasoning, I really did enjoy this book because his hunting experiences were so entertaining and memorable that you could look back and say, "Hey Uncle Ted did that!" He incorporates so much imagery into his stories that when you read it, you get that deep feeling in your gut that your in the woods, your there watching Uncle Ted do what he does, and you enjoy every second of it. Another aspect of his work that I found enlightening is that he is extremely blunt about everything he says, and you can tell that he is very avid in all his thoughts. Listening to Uncle Ted speak, you find out quickly that he is the teacher and you are the student. He wants to inform everyone whom reads his work that he stands for his beliefs and he will not back down. I don't really have anything bad to say about this work, because I feel that everything he states, I can relate to in some way. I can see why his work offends some people, but like he says, everyone is too sensitive and is afraid to offend others, and I agree with him. To read or not to read is the question here, and I can answer that by saying that this is a bowhunting/outdoors piece of literature that incorporates some of the most bluntly said statements ever. Please, if your one of those guys or gals that hates hunting, quivers listening to a redneck voice his thoughts or is lives to stand up for the world, do not buy this for yourself, however, if your an insensitive human being that enjoys the outdoors, killing, standing up for tradition, and being apart of the redneck community, this is your heaven.Was this review helpful?
