HUNTER'S ALERT endorses the following candidates for public office. Our decision was based on the candidates' support of our legislative agenda which includes legislation to return to a Department of Fish and Game concept where all monies derived from hunting and fishing licenses, tags, stamps and matching funds are returned to hunting and fishing programs. Please support these candidates as they understand our concerns and support our issues.

Sincerely,

Cecil Fredi,

President, HUNTERS ALERT

FEAR OF REPRISAL

Written by Hunters Alert

Many guides have come forth acknowledging what a serious predator problem we have in our state but they were reluctant to put it in writing because of fear of reprisal from NDOW. Doesn't that bring to mind visions of World War II Nazi SS troops who persecuted people for speaking out against their government? We have secured statements from some of these guides with the promise that we will not use their names for fear of reprisal. We will call them Guides A, B and C. Below are their stories.

The 1992-93 winter-on the heels of a six-year drought in many states-triggered the mule deer decline, say wildlife officials in all affected states. But deeper-rooted factors led up to the collapse. Increasing numbers of predators played a hand, and politically driven, short-sighted management was also to blame.

While sitting around the campfire one evening an old rancher posed this question to us. What was the best caliber of gun for game? Of course, this isn't a one caliber answer. Obviously, you don't take a 17 caliber to hunt elephants or a .458 to hunt squirrel. After everyone gave their pitch for his favorite caliber, the old rancher settled the dispute. What was the best caliber for game? The old man said a 22 single shot. Of course, there were snickers and hoots. But he went on to explain. When a rancher or farmer had a son, one of his first birthday or Christmas presents was a 22 single shot rifle. The rifle itself was very inexpensive, ammo was cheap, and by being a single shot it taught the value of accuracy. Now the boy went out and he didn't set up 25 or 50 yard paper targets. He shot magpies, crows, ravens, hawks, skunks, raccoons. What he shot were predators and it was legal to do. In doing so, he helped increase game numbers.

I never really thought too much about it when he told the story. But as I look at our game situation today compared to the way it was in the past, the old man was telling the truth. Ah, yes, if we could just return to the past.

...Jim Bilbray wanted to protect predators (which reduces game numbers) by outlawing trapping? Another reason to vote for John Ensign! ...Jim Bilbray wanted to outlaw rodeos (Animal rights supporter) until he found out that Las Vegas hosts the National Finals Rodeo bringing millions of dollars to our state. Another reason to vote for John Ensign!

Finally, someone has the intestinal fortitude to expose the animal rights groups for what they really are. Kathleen Marquardt has written a book called "Animal Scam". It is a must read for all hunters, trappers and ranchers. To order the book, call (406) 442-5700. Following are a few excerpts from "Animal Scam".

For years we have stated that it doesn't do any good to attend a Wildlife Commission meeting. Never was that more evident than at the October meeting. Even at the outset, Chairman Brown determined that he did not want to waste time with facts. The Wildlife Commission voted to give our sheep to Texas against the wishes of the majority of Nevadans. They forgot about government by the people, for the people. Instead, they displayed government for the private interest.

Sept. 1 is coming up quickly. This date has always been greatly anticipated by area hunters. It's the opening day of dove season, the start of fall hunting. Times change; my hunter instinct has mellowed with age, but my son's are just budding. My oldest boy will experience his first Nevada deer hunt this season. He will be the fifth generation of his family to hunt here; his great-great grandfather lived and hunted in Lincoln County in the 1870's.

Dear HUNTER'S ALERT members:

I have truly enjoyed being involved with this great association. Thanks to HUNTER'S ALERT many great and exciting things are in store for the sportsman in Nevada. Working hand in hand with the Board of Directors we have developed a strategy for success during the 1995 Legislative session. We have had tremendous success in taking our message to Nevada's legislators. They are beginning to realize that HUNTER'S ALERT is the voice of the Nevada sportsman. The response of legislators to our concerns surrounding the status of game in Nevada has been overwhelmingly positive.

The ground work is in place. Our message is clear and it makes sense. Now is the time for you as members to get involved. As the 1995 Legislative Session draws closer, we will need your help in reaching your legislator. It is important that those who represent you in Carson City are aware of your concerns. During the Legislative Session we will set up grass root programs which will require your volunteer help to be successful. We don't need a great deal of your time, just a little quality time.

You are the key to our success. Your many years of hard work protecting our interests are about to be rewarded. Never again will the sportsmen of Nevada be left without a voice. We are here to stay and we will be heard.

Thank you for continuing to support this effort. Nevada is a great place to live, work, and hunt! With your help it will remain just that.

Sincerely,

Warren B. Hardy

We continue to get many comments from disgruntled sportsmen throughout our state. They are disgusted with Nevada Division of Wildlife and its direction. Our viewpoint has been criticized by some as a one person vendetta against NDOW But judging by the mail we receive, that criticism would seem to be unrealistic. The letters we receive are straight from the heart, unsolicited comments. Can hundreds of people be wrong? We don't think so! Just keep those comments coming. NDOW and the Wildlife Commission will not do anything about our problems but a new governor will!

They kept it quiet in Las Vegas. They kept it quiet in Elko. But Nevada Division of Wildlife Director Willie Molini has cost the taxpayers of our state almost $300,000.00 in sexual discrimination suits. This is the same Willie Molini who Wildlife Commission Chairman Mahlon Brown refers to as "one of the best administrators in the West".

CLASS ACT IN LAS VEGAS: Tommy and Judy Ford bidding on the IGT Poker machine—against each other! Unbeknownst to Judy, Tommy was in the rear of the room bidding against his wife. Final bid—a whopping $1800.00. This was indeed a class act. And a good time was had by all!

CLASS ACT IN ELKO: Don Wellington of Elko won the door prize, a beautiful coffee table with a quail scene. Showing lots of class, Don donated it back to HUNTER'S ALERT and it brought $600 as an auction item!

DID YOU KNOW: Willie Molini spent 26 days out of state (at sportsmen's expense) in 1993. Is it any wonder Nevada hunting issues are neglected?

Reprinted from THE NEVADA APPEAL, Carson City, Nevada, April 14,1989:

WILDLIFE BOSS COMES UNDER ATTACK

Sex discrimination, fraud charges surface

Department of Wildlife chief Willie Molini was grilled by lawmakers today about allegations of sex discrimination. And a long-time critic renewed claims of embezzlement and fraudulent hunting tag drawings....

"But the AG (attorney general) agreed with the embezzlement charges. He said the only reason he wouldn't prosecute the case was because the department's records were so screwed up they couldn't build a case. But this mismanagement has got to be straightened out."

Ed. note: The mismanagement is still there and the department is still "screwed up".

How did you like our banquets? From all reports we have received, everyone attending in Elko and Las Vegas had a wonderful time. I want to thank everyone who made these events special. A very special thanks to Billy, Bushey, Steve, and Darlene for without their support we could never have done what we did with so much flair and class! While I'm thanking people, there is one special person who I would like to thank. All sportsmen in the state of Nevada should thank this person for his generous support of HUNTER'S ALERT!". Without his support, we could not have reached a fraction of the people that we do now. His true concern for sportsmen has given us a special impetus to reach as many and fight as hard as we can to keep our heritage of hunting and fishing alive. This very special person chooses to remain anonymous, but to him and his undying loyalty, I offer a salute from all sportsmen in this great state of Nevada!

HUNTER'S ALERT has just completed two very successful banquets, one in May in Las Vegas, and our first at Elko in June. The banquet in Las Vegas was supported by many of our original members. It is extremely rewarding to see people like Tommy Ford, Mike Fauci, Hagan Thompson, and many, many more attend our function. These were the people who believed in us from the beginning and are still there to help us achieve our goals. It gives us assurance that with people like this on our side, we can indeed succeed. They not only help make our organization a success, but our fundraisers go over the top because of them.

BEST QUOTE FROM LAS VEGAS : "If Iam elected governor, one of my first official duties will be the termination of Willie Molini." Las Vegas Mayor and gubernatorial candidate Jan Jones.

BEST QUOTE FROM ELKO : "We have a slick Willie in Washington and a slick Willie in Nevada. If you elect me governor, I will introduce Willie Molini to a job in the private sector." Assemblyman and gubernatorial candidate Jim Gibbons

ISN'T IT AMAZING!: When Nevada Department of Transportation was exposed in Las Vegas for building fences on private property with state materials, Governor Miller got involved. Yet when Nevada Division of Wildlife employees were doing the same thing, nothing was done!

Reprinted from Barbwire, ELKO DAILY FREE PRESS, June 24, 1994: "The Hunter's Alert banquet is tomorrow evening at the Stockmen's. This is the outfit that realized quite some time ago that the problem with hunting and fishing in this state was that the fish and game were being managed by Willie Molini. And they've been working ever since to correct that problem. Unfortunately, Molini's boss is his buddy Bob Miller; and Gov. Miller—apparently confusing wild horses with game animals-hasn't figured out there's a problem yet."-RS, DS

REMEMBER: If Governor Miller is reelected, Willie Molini will still be the Nevada Division of Wildlife administrator and Mahlon Brown will still be chairman of the Wildlife Commission. That would definitely not be in the best interests of those who want to improve hunting in our state. These are the people directly responsible for our present dismal game situation!

When Governor Miller took office, Willie Molini's salary was $50,728. Today it is $58,204. His assistant, Terry Crawforth makes $55,801. Ed. note: Willie's raise certainly couldn't have been based on the merit system!

...In 1990, 18% of Nevada Department of Wildlife's budget was spent on non-game. This year it will be 25.82%!

...At one time, New Zealand had so many game animals that there were no seasons, licenses, or limits. WHY? They hadn't hunted them for 40 years and there were no predators.
