Rocker Ted Nugent pleads no contest to deer-baiting charge

Rock star and noted hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent was fined $1,750 in Yuba County Superior Court Friday after pleading no contest to charges of baiting deer and not having a properly signed hunting tag, according to the Los Angeles Times. The charges arose following an incident last year in which Nugent was filmed killing an immature buck on an episode of his hunting show, Spirit of the Wild, which airs on the Outdoor Channel. An investigation found that Nugent and his co-defendants, Mitchell Moore and Ross Patterson, had baited the area using a wildlife attractant called “C’Mere Deer,” in violation of California law.
