The 'N Sync singer was rejected this week in his bid to visit the International Space Station because his sponsors were unable to come up with the $20 million fee in time.
But for just $1 million, Nugent has offered to have the boy band member over to his Michigan ranch to teach him bow-hunting skills. The guitarist and outdoorsman said Bass could then join him on a weeklong hunt, "where he'll be taught a greater appreciation for nature and gravity as he hunts, kills, cleans and cooks for himself."
"Bass needs to quit worrying about going into outer space and embrace and celebrate life by learning how to kill his own food," Nugent said Tuesday. "A slab of flesh on the back of a deer is the finest source of protein on the planet."
The 53-year-old rocker said he'd sweeten the deal by "throwing in a few guitar lessons."
Nugent is a National Rifle Association board member whose books include "God, Guns & Rock 'n' Roll" and "Kill it and Grill It: A Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish." He says he'll kill 100 deer this year, most of which he'll donate to homeless shelters.
Bass' publicist, Jill Fritzo, did not immediately have a response to Nugent's offer Wednesday.
The Russian space agency Rosaviakosmos on Tuesday ordered Bass to leave Russia's Star City cosmonaut training ground, where he'd been since July, after missing several deadlines to pay for his October ride.
