Ted Nugent on Hunting Marksmanship

Ted Nugent weighs in on marksmanship and its importance to hunters.

The HunterShooter program was created to develop and promote effective field marksmanship for big game hunters. The lack of shooting skill for any hunter demonstrates a lack of preparation and respect for the hunted animal. Ted Nugent echoes this sentiment:

“Accountability is right up there with safety and the law! The same basic principle applies to all “projectile management”, really. Whether it’s arrows from my bow, rocks and marbles out of my wristrocket slingshot, BB’s from my Red Ryder, handguns, open sight rifles or scoped target guns, good marksmanship will only come with certain and intense disciplines.

HunterShooter is the only formal discipline promoting field marksmanship for hunters. Follow Uncle Ted’s advice and get involved today.

Army Marksmanship Training Facts

The 82nd Airborne Division has a chorus group that travels and sings but does not have a rifle team. The US Army Reserve has several bands as well. The Army recognizes band members by MOS. Previously, each instrument was a separate Military Occupational Specialty. Currently, 42R is the Band MOS and each instrument is an ASI (Additional Skill Identifier.)

There is no MOS or ASI for marksmanship instructor in the US Army. There isn't even any specified, published skill requirement to teach (or attempt to teach) marksmanship to Soldiers.
