To the Editor:

Good news for Elko county sportsmen: Wellington resigns.

The article that appeared in Tuesday’s Elko Daily Free Press by Ken Wellington must have been written by Nevada Department of Wildlife. I say this because NDOW’s so-called science is bogus as is most of the article. NDOW doubled the number of deer tags from last year with only a 2 percent increase in deer population. That is bogus science.

As a county advisory board to manage wildlife member, Mr. Wellington has been gullible enough to accept NDOW’s science without question for years. He would believe NDOW’s armchair biologists over people like Cliff Gardner and John Carpenter, who witnessed the Rubies’ deer migrations numbering in the thousands in the 1950s and 1960s.

He bought into NDOW’s habitat excuse. Did he ever ask NDOW the following questions: Who will do the habitat restoration? How much will it cost? How long will it take to restore Nevada’s habitat? Probably not as apparently Wellington never questioned NDOW.

I can answer the question as to how long it will take. NDOW’s biologists will use the everlasting habitat excuse until their 30-year state pensions kick in.

The true sportsmen of Elko County will never miss Mr. Wellington but NDOW Director Ken Mayer sure will.
