Candidate for Total A-Hole

“Authorities allege that Gentry purchased the bear from Greenly, a wildlife photographer and hunting guide, then killed it with a bow and arrow in an enclosed pen on Greenly's property in October 2004.

The government alleges that Gentry and Greenly tagged the bear with a Minnesota hunting license and registered the animal with the state Department of Natural Resources as a wild kill.

Gentry allegedly paid about $4,650 for the bear, named Cubby. The bear's death was videotaped, and the tape later edited so Gentry appeared to shoot the animal in a "fair chase" hunting situation, the government alleges.”

This is Troy Gentry of the country music’s Montgomery Gentry. I have no idea what they sing or anything about them. I do know that if this story is true this guy is a total Ass-Hole. If he is convicted he should be sent to Iraq to do some REAL hunting.

Hi POP,

Nice to see someone else gets up early.

Mmmmm, killing a bear named "Cubby"? Seems like the so-called hunter has some childhood stuffed animal issues...Maybe he is a closeted murderous Plushophile?

(I saw this fetish examined on a CSI episode. I thought I had seen everything....NOT!

Oh good grief! There has to be some gene out of order with the guy to even think of this. He does seem to be in the same leage with Cheney shooting ground birds. I know, we could cage Cheney and send Gentry up there to shoot him! You know, birds of a feather shoot each other together kind of reasoning. I wouldn't send him to Iraq, tho. He'd probably end up doing horrid things to people who are just going about their lives like you and me.

It is one thing to hunt for food. I don't understand the desire to wantonly kill an animal, but at least the beast has some sort of fair chance.

This guy is right up there with the kind of crud who ties fireworks to cats for the 4th of July. If true, I hope they sentence him for a good long stretch in the clink.

I despise country western music on basic principles, because it a) never has anything bright or happy or uplifting to say (all the songs I've heard deal with separation, divorce, death, alcoholism, or other sunny subjects), and b) because it reinforces a cultural mythos that is just plain wrong in this day and age.

When they started doing 'war' songs for the Bush War, I stopped listening altogether, and now consider the genre to be a form of torture to be banned by the Geneva Conventions.

The song they are most known for is "My Town", and like most country music it's awful. He should be prosecuted in no uncertain terms and imprisoned, and hopefully will be.

By the way, PoP, I have those links about Sodom and Gomorrah you were interested in, on my latest post on my blog, so come on over when you get a chance and check them out.

I was livid when I read about that yesterday! Gentry is going to be performing at the Labor Day Boomsday event in Knoxville, Tennessee. Anyone who lives nearby should write to the organizers, the City of Knoxville, or protest at the event. If I still lived there, you could bet I'd be at the event with a sign!

You know I hunt from time to time. But I will tell you what those two morons did was not hunting. And the only thing we hunt for is something we are going to eat. Hence the fact I tend to only hunt for ducks and Deer because I eat both.

Those two are a hunters nightmare. I have never understood the principle of killing just to kill, I will sho a house fly out of the house before I kill it, that is just asinine.

People like Gentry and Greenly usually end up shooting themselves or others by accident.

Most country music is horrible but I will always listen to Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Sr. ;-)

I hate to keep ragging on the Lone Star State Patricia, but it is famous for it's Canned Hunt Ranches.You can pay big bucks to go on a safari for animals stuck behind fences. We just outlawed that sick behavior here in Montana (he says proudly) Country Western is the Special Olympics of music but then if youve ever heard the right wing rocker Ted Nugent rant about killing animals...( disclaimer:I hunt for food)

That's despicable. We have bears around here, and I wash my garbage so they won't be attracted to it, become a pest, and be killed as a public threat.

It's certainly comforting to know that money will buy you something you can kill just for fun.

""I'm glad he was arrested; and yes, send him to the front lines in Iraq as his sentence.""

You know people, as a former US Army NCO, I would like to tell you that guys like Gentry and Greenly make horrible service people.

They complain about everything and cry at the drop of a hat despite their bellicose ramblings about America and patriotism. The ability to think logically under pressure is non-existent because their myths that they hold so dear start falling apart the minute the s#@% hits the fan.

Please let us NOT send our military personnel something that will drag them down because any CO or NCO knows that a unit is always subject to the lowest common denominator.

How about we fly Gentry up to Alaskan grizzly country and leave him in the middle of it? We'll see just how manly he is -- just before he starts screaming for the plane to come back...

Here is how I would like to see him do his type of sport hunting.

Turn him loose with his favorite firearm in a hunting ranch with a 15 minute head start.

After 15 minutes send in several convicts facing the death penalty from the local prison with the same type of weapons. The one who comes out alive is the winner...now there is some sport he could appreciate.

Any way you look at it the public comes out a winner.

another scenario: dress him up as a bear, and send out on one of those "exotic" canned hunt ranches with Ted Nugent.

Okay, I like all the plans, especially if they involve Ted Nugent hunting Gentry and Greely. However, my favorite is to have him dropped into bear country in Alaska, but make it right after the cubs start frolicking and the mothers are super-protective. Also, let him scream all he wants, but the plane should just take off. If he killed a tamed bear named Cubby, let the little cub's mommies kill him.

What a piece of shit. Now check this out, he was bragging about his dumbass song called My Town in an interview posted on his website. He said, "Hey, I just got a call from the National Guard and they were on their way down to New Orleans to help out and they rolled into town with our song 'My Town' blasting on the stereo!" What a dumbf--k. So, I say right before the cub season in Alaska, make these two asswipes Gentry and Greely spend one month with the National Guard on the Texas border in the hot, hot sun. Then another month in the Ninth Ward clearing out the houses filled with mold and corpses no one ever bothered to retrieve. Them send them to Alaska to be eaten by bears.

Though I'm embarrassed to admit it, Crazy Ted Nugent is almost a neighbor, living about 40 miles down the road here in Michigan. I see the Nugent bumper stickers that urge parents to hunt with their children to keep them out of trouble. Never seems to work with Ted, though. He always seems to be getting himself in trouble.

I don't jhave anything against hunting, for those who have to help feed their family. But this isn't hunting at all, just pure sadism on the behalf of some flag waving country music singing dolt with sever self-esteem problems. But he does have a cowboy hat, just like our president!

He was/is a NASCAR fan. Need I say more?:) Being serious, there are fenced in "wildlife hunting farms" all over the U.S., where you are "guarenteed" a "kill." Or, to pour the whisky in a different glass...."keep shooting. You're bound to kill something!!" I used to be an avid white tailed deer hunter in Michigan, untill they started allowing "baiting." That's the practice of putting out things the deer like (carrots and apples were the favoite bait; cheap, lots available), then shooting them while they ate. Whenever I saw a fresh bait pile in the morning, I would camp out near it, and if I saw any deer headed for it, I would fire a shot in the ground, making it sound like I was shooting at the deer, while I was really chasing the deer off.

But then, I'm old enough to remember when hunting was a matchup of wits, on the animal's home turf. You lost much more than you won.....but "victory", when it came, was so invigorating. Like everything else nowadays I guess, it's "I want to get this done in two minutes then go on to the next video game likeness." Maybe that's not bad.....I just see it as not good. But I'm rambling, so I'll shut off the memories.....

enigma4ever beat me to it... I was going to advocate for the "right to arm bears."

If the allegation is true, Gentry is one sick (expletive). I am OK with people who hunt for food (as my grandfather did), and I grudgingly tolerate people who hunt for sport if there's a genuine hunt involved, but anyone who would do this gets no sympathy from me for whatever happens to him next.

(As for me, as the old saying goes, I'm a vegetarian because plants don't scream as loudly when you kill them.)
