Not even the mighty TED can eat all he shoots....... Don't believe the propaganda, check the second link above. He got busted for shooting an
underage deer for TV! Just how many deer can the man eat? He must have one seriously clogged up colon..........
He hosts wild game feeds often, and also donates some meat to food shelves, so no, he may not every bite personally, but none of it gets wasted.
As far as his game violations in California go, that was dumb of him but understandable.
Each state has its own laws, and fork bucks are legal in the states Ted does the bulk of his hunting Texas and Michigan. Baiting is also legal in
many states. Young deer provide the best meat, it's like wild veal. They also have the lowest chance of living through winter as apposed to adult
Game laws are very state specific, and often reflect political will more than what is good for the animal populations. But it was his job to know the
laws of California before he went on the hunt.
He owned up to his mistake and paid his fine, not going to hang it over his head his whole life.
I consider myself a very ethical hunter, I even freeze my gut pile and give it (along with the head and a couple roasts) to a Hmong family that lives
near me, they also take the penis if it's a buck, nothing gets wasted when I take an animal.
And even I have been ticketed for a minor infraction. In my case I was tired and wet after a long day of pheasant hunting in the rain and sat down on
the back bumper of my Suburban while still holding my shotgun. And as I was unloading it a game warden walked up and wrote me a ticket for loaded
uncased firearm in my vehicle. If the same thing had happened today I would have been legal as I have a conceal weapon permit, which allows me to
have uncased and loaded firearms in my vehicle.
I have a good friend who is a boyscout in every sense of the word get a fine also for fishing with 2 lines, which is legal in all 3 states he has
lived in, just not in Minnesota.
