Ted Nugent Fined for Shooting Deer for Reality Show

Taping a segment of 'Spirit of the Wild', the rocker pleaded to no contest when charged with illegally baiting a deer.

Rocker has been fined $1,750 after pleading no contest to illegally baiting deer on his hunting reality TV show. The "Cat Scratch Fever" singer, a keen hunter, was seen using a deer attractant to coax two wild animals in California - where baiting is illegal - on his show "Spirit of the Wild" in February.

He originally faced 11 charges, including killing a deer too young to be hunted. However, after a deal at a Yuba court on Friday, August 13, Nugent entered no contest pleas to two misdemeanor charges of baiting two deer and was handed the fine.

California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy recalled the incident, "They watched him appear to shoot a spiked buck, which is an illegal buck to take, because it's too small. And he had it right there on television, and it wasn't live, it was taped."
