In the 2005 legislative session, HUNTER’S ALERT and Nevada Hunters Association sponsored a bill to audit a very small part of Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW). The bill passed with the help of Assemblyman Jerry Claborn. Jerry realized how badly NDOW was being mismanaged for many years. Getting the bill passed was not easy as NDOW had their favorite puppet, Larry Johnson there testifying against the bill. Larry’s feeble excuse was that NDOW couldn’t afford the audit. As usual, Larry didn’t know what he was talking about as there was no additional cost to perform this audit. Larry failed to realize that if you don’t stand up for what is right, you are wrong.

My name is Gerald Lent and I represent Nevada Hunters Association. This audit is a complete embarrassment to you as a Commission and the Department of Wildlife.

The Las Vegas Sun is an insert in the Las Vegas Review Journal. It should more appropriately be called a throwaway insert because of its extremely biased reporting. In the Sunday, February 4 edition, is an article entitled “Starting Monday, lawmakers to weigh a wide range of bills”. The article states that “Assemblyman Jerry Claborn, D-Las Vegas, wants a bill authorizing hunters to “kill a certain number of animals “within a lifetime.” Claborn could not be reached by the Sun, but a spokeswoman said there was no further explanation of the idea.”

The article makes it sound like hunters must kill a certain number of animals. This is the furthest thing from the truth. The bill will authorize hunters to “kill only” a certain number of a specific animal in a lifetime. This is just another example of inaccuracy designed to mislead and to distort the actual proposal which has been a specialty of the Las Vegas Sun..

ATTENTION

The next HUNTER’S ALERT article will expose the corruption by former NDOW director Terry Crawforth. This corruption was condoned by Kenny Guinn, Tommy Ford, Clint Bentley, Bill Bradley, Chris Mackenzie and other Wildlife commissioners. You won’t believe it, but as usual, HUNTER’S ALERT will furnish the proof.

Talbot Creek Mountain Lions in the old Days
This photo was taken in Talbot Creek on the west slope of the Ruby Mountains. It was photographed when lions were classified as predators and the deer migrated through the Rubies by the thousands. This is something that our current “do-nothing, know-nothing, won’t listen to anyone” Wildlife commissioners do not want to recognize. Of course, when their terms are up, they will all receive an award for their non-achievements.

The blood and deaths of these rams (and probably hundreds more) belongs on the hands of Wildlife commissioner Clint Bentley, former Wildlife commissioners Tommy Ford and John Moran

 

That is a bold statement. Now let’s prove it! These three pictures are the skulls of 11 desert bighorn sheep rams. They were located in two different areas. In one area, 6 skulls were found in 4 days! This is how bad the lion predation is in our state. How did this travesty develop? Well, you can thank the above mentioned Wildlife commissioners for this terrible situation.

HUNTER S ALERT has been very successful in past legislative sessions. This is due to the many senators and assemblymen and assemblywomen who have supported sportsmen s concerns. Without their efforts, many sportsmen s bills would not have become law.

Like it or not, sportsmen are in a chess game with the antihunting groups. By being passive, sportsmen will accomplish nothing. The antis are not passive. Quite the contrary, they are coming at us continually from all directions. It is for this reason that it is up to the sportsmen to elect prohunting legislators. HUNTER S ALERT cannot do this for you. It is up to you. You can be passive and lose or take the time to vote. It is a simple choice. Make the right one!!

Cecil:

I have read with interest your Hunter Alert- Fall –06 publication. You and I have corresponded before in the past. I will refresh your memory; I worked for Dept of Interior and Dept of Agriculture ADC programs in nine western states for 31 years as a trapper and as a Supervisory Wildlife Biologist. I have a BS Degree in Wildlife Management from Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona. I presently am retired from federal service and live on a ranch on the west slope, near Talbot Creek. in the Ruby Mountains, Elko County, Nevada. We take in pasture cattle, in the summer months, on our ranch. I ride on cattle often in the Ruby Mountains. This mountain is "Dead." By that I mean you cannot feel any heartbeats as there are very few animals living on the Ruby Mountains. By animals, I mean Mule Deer. (Deer tracks do not lie)

Nevada Department of Wildlife has decided to do an emergency deer slaughter (I mean) hunt using wildfires as the reason. There were many questions that should have been addressed before this farce was approved. First, why didn’t they wait until after the regular deer season was over to evaluate the harvest? If the habitat isn’t there, isn’t this considered a slaughter? Why didn’t NDOW get the opinions of the people who live in and know the areas? The answer is they didn’t, so concerned sportsmen went to Assemblyman John Carpenter and had some of this proposed area closed to the slaughter because it is not a wintering area for deer. So much for NDOW’s knowledge on wintering areas. Why didn’t some genius on the Wildlife Commission suggest that they go to the governor for some funding to relocate the deer? Of course, this would require some work on NDOW’s part and they are not into that.

Excerpts from October 1999 Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge

Publication

The Hart Mountain 1999 summer pronghorn survey showed the highest rate of fawn survival seen on the Refuge since 1992. Out of an estimated 1497 fawns born on the Refuge, 297 survived through mid-July. This rate of survival is equivalent to 38 fawns per 100 does. Under typical conditions, fawn survival that averages 25-30 per 100 does will maintain the size of the herd....In recent years, fawn survival and recruitment appear to be limited by events in the first 10 days of a pronghorn's life.

Assemblyman John Carpenter, working with some concerned sportsmen, was able to stop the proposed antlerless deer slaughter on the North Fork Road. This is the good news. There are still many unanswered questions like, Are they going to decrease the number of tags? Are they going to refund any money? And probably the biggest blunder, Why didn’t they wait until after the regular deer season to see what the success rate was going to be before they proposed this slaughter?

Did you know that last year 34,944 Nevada residents applied for a deer tag? However, only 14,304 were successful in the tag draw. This means almost 20,000 (60%) of Nevada hunters were unsuccessful in the draw. To Help please click here.

For the Wildlife commissioners and NDOW to use Area 6 range fires as an excuse to sway Nevada citizens into thinking Nevada’s mule deer destruction has been caused by fires and habitat loss is a deliberate deception on their part and inexcusable. Let’s prove it.

The good news for Nevada sportsmen is that as of July, Tommy Ford is no longer a Wildlife commissioner. The bad news is he left his baggage (Clint Bentley) behind. You see it was because of Tommy Ford that Clint Bentley was appointed to the Wildlife Commission.

On September 4, 2006, Hagan Thompson passed away in Las Vegas at age 70. Hagan was a most knowledgeable and experienced hunter. He knew not only Nevada hunting but hunting just about anywhere else in the world as well. He traveled to Canada, Alaska and to five African countries with 25 safaris over a period of 30 years. He was an artist in taxidermy, turning trophies into lifetime memories for his clients. As a taxidermist for over 45 years, he mounted everything from chipmunks to African elephants. His sage advice on the best places to hunt enabled many novice hunters to achieve success in the field.

For a hunter or gun owner in our state, no election has been as important as this year’s gubernatorial race. For the last eighteen years, Nevada sportsmen have been A.W.O.L. (absent without leave) when it comes to having a governor who cares about sportsmen’s issues. For ten years, Bob Miller and for eight years, Kenny Guinn totally neglected sportsmen’s issues. As bad as they were, by electing Dina Titus it will get a lot worse.

At various times over the past twenty years, I was a member of a county game board to manage wildlife. When I was not a member, I attended these meetings on a regular basis. At these meetings, it was always Nevada Department of Wildlife’s (NDOW) position that no one from a county game board, ranch, farm or a hunter knew anything about fish and game matters. This was in spite of the age of the individual or how many years experience they had pertaining to wildlife matters.

It keeps getting worse for Nevada deer hunters. Of course, the Wildlife commissioners are oblivious to this problem. They could care less about our declining deer numbers. That is a fact.

HUNTER’S ALERT has been critical of the Wildlife Commission and for good reasons. However, a little praise could be in order for one of the current members. Commissioner Jim Jeffress is working on a proposal to shift NDOW’s law enforcement to the Department of Public Safety. Here are some of Commissioner Jeffress’ findings:
