I sent a letter to the Editor of the Review Journal but they failed to print it. The article was entitled “Commissioners honored for work:”

Last Sunday’s Review Journal contained an article, “Commissioners honored for work”. The crux of the article was about the enhancement of the Overton Wildlife Management Area and some of the funding came from private sources. Let’s put this into perspective. Why should the private sector have to pay to do a state agency’s job? Here is what knowledgeable stand-up wildlife commissioners should have said to the director of the Nevada Department of Wildlife. ‘For twenty years, OWMA has been neglected by your agency. Southern Nevada sportsmen fund one-third of your budget and very little of that is spent on southern Nevada projects. We want the OWMA cleaned up, refurbished and if it isn’t, we will go to the governor with a vote of no confidence about your leadership.’

I attended a Wildlife Commission meeting in which Chairman Tommy Ford displayed no leadership whatsoever. He was insulting and his demeanor was so bad that I will never again attend a Wildlife Commission meeting.

Incompetence should not be ‘honored’. It was either NDOW or the wildlife commissioners or both who failed to do their job. Since when are honors in order for someone not doing his job? You don’t cure bad government by throwing more and more money at the problem. A change in leadership with intelligent people will cure the problem.

You posted a comment from Mel Belding on your website berating Gerry Lent. I can assure you this guy has not been to the Nevada Legislature for the past forty years sticking up for hunters or hunters’ rights as Gerry Lent has. Just doing whatever NDOW wants is not the answer to our problem. NDOW’s track record is not good. They have done nothing for hunters or hunters’ rights and this last legislative session proves that.

This so-called coalition consisting of sportsmen’s organizations is being duped. When someone claims to represent them, it means these sportsmen’s organizations don’t want anything done about the demise of our deer or even know or care about where sportsmen’s money in being spent. The Wildlife Commission is the worst offender in doing whatever NDOW wants. Again, this was never more evident than when they endorsed NDOW’s legislative package. NDOW’s bills did nothing for sportsmen except harass them.

With every legislative bill, there are always two sides. Let’s present these two sides so you can decide which group is doing the right thing and which wants to continue with bad government. You be the judge. In this current legislative session, there is a bill, AB3, to do an audit of Nevada Department of Wildlife. (NDOW)

Every time you go to the field be prepared for a confrontation. That is a good possibility, especially if you use an off-road vehicle. Currently there are two bills, SB397 and SB400 that, if passed, will have many negative impacts, not only on hunters but all people who use the outdoors.

Are you willing to give up ten minutes to straighten out the mess that NDOW and the Wildlife Commission have gotten us into? You can help by phoning, writing or e-mailing some Nevada legislators regarding some very important wildlife bills.

Mr. Chairman and members of the Wildlife Commission, I would like my prepared testimony included in the minutes of this meeting as Commissioner Bradley had requested of his comments during your August 6th and 7th 2004 meeting.

GET READY!

Written by Hunters Alert

HUNTER’S ALERT has five proposed bills in the upcoming 2005 legislative session. These bills are designed to bring back our deer, have accountability for sportsmen’s money and put knowledgeable people on the Wildlife Commission. NDOW and the Wildlife Commission will not like this as they prefer selling out the sportsmen. So get ready! for they will be using fear, lies and intimidation to make sure these bills don’t become law. Don’t believe them! It is quite apparent that what they are doing isn’t working. So let’s work to make these long overdue changes. Do your part by letting the legislators know how you feel about the way NDOW and the Wildlife Commission are managing our game. HUNTER’S ALERT will have all the information on the proposed bills and how you can do your part to see that these bills are passed.

What the hell ever happened to government for the people, by the people.  Today it is government protecting corrupt government employees. Think about it. Nevada has literally thousands of state employees and you never hear of any one of them being prosecuted. I guess they are all perfect employees. Let me give you an example of a corrupt state agency in Nevada and who protects this agency. The head of the Nevada Department of Wildlife for twenty years was Willie Molini. Here is a partial list of his corruption and the other government agencies that protected him during his tenure.

HUNTER'S ALERT:

Written by Erin Kenny

I would like to let your readers know how I feel about issues that are important to them. First, I support the Constitution and that certainly includes the Second Amendment. I believe that outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing are important not only for adults but for children who can participate and enjoy the outdoors.

The main duty of the Lieutenant Governor is to bring new business to our state. If I am elected Lieutenant Governor, one of my priorities will be to see the proposed world class shooting range completed in Clark County. In addition to this range's importance for safety reasons, it would also bring newfound revenues to the state.

Sincerely,

Erin Kenny

Candidate for Lieutenant Governor

Re: Hunter's Alert Summer Issue

I was horrified to read the article in the above-referenced newsletter about the Nevada Division of Wildlife game warden (Roddy Shepard) who couldn't bring himself to function in an emergency situation involving a ram who had been severely injured by a motor vehicle on the roadway.
