mountain lion workshop 212 page book

“(MOUNTAIN LION WORKSHOP 212 PAGE BOOK) OF THE WESTERN STATES AND WESTERN CANADA”
THAT WAS HELD IN SPARKS NEVADA ON JANUARY 13, 14, OF 1976 BY INVITATION ONLY, NOT BEING AWARE OF THIS CLOSED DOOR MEETING, A GOOD FRIEND AND FORMER SUBGUIDE CAME TO MY HOME AND MADE ME AWARE OF THE 2 DAY SESSION THAT TOOK PLACE, AND THAT AN ARTICLE WAS GOING TO APPEAR IN OUTDOOR LIFE.
IF I HAD NOT BEEN INVITED AS A GUEST SPEAKER, IN AUGUST 1978, AT HOME MEAD, CALIFORNIA, ALONG WITH DON STEHSEL. A NOTED WILDLIFE FIELD CONVERVATIONIST AND PRESIDENT OF THE CALIFORNIA TRAPPERS ASSOCIATION, I WOULD HAVE NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH THE BOOK. DON STEHSEL WAS IN
POSSESSION OF 2 MOUNTAIN LION WORKSHOP BOOKS ONE FROM THE U.S. AND ANOTHER FROM CANADA, THAT I WAS UNAWARE OF EXISTED PRETAINING TO THE TWO DAY SPARKS, NEVADA WORKSHOP. UPON RETURNING TO NEVADA I BEGAN INQUIRING ABOUT THE 212 PAGE BOOK AND NO ONE IN NEVADA WAS AWARE OF.
I WAS RELENTLESS IN MY DESIRE TO OBTAIN A COPY. I WAS OFFERING $100.00 FOR A COPY. A FEW YEARS LATER, WHILE WORKING AS A UNION LABORER AT THE LEGISLATIVE BUILDING IN CARSON CITY, ON THE SECOND FLOOR, WHILE GOING IN AND OUT OF THE STATE RESEARCH LIBARY, IT OCCURED TO ME TO APPROACH THE HEAD LIBRARIAN TO ASK HER IF SHE MIGHT HAVE THIS BOOK, IF NOT, MIGHT SHE OBTAIN ONE FOR ME. TO MY SURPRISE SHE ADMITTED KNOWING NOTHING ABOUT IT, SHE DID LOOK FOR IT TO BE SURE, AND THANKED ME FOR BRINGING IT TO HER ATTENTION. SEVERAL DAYS LATER, SHE TOLD ME SHE RECIEVED A COPY FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF F.G. AND SENT IT DONNSTAIRS TO HAVE A COPY MADE TO PRESENT TO ME. A MOST UNEXPECTED AND REWARDING SURPRISE, I OFFERED TO PAY HER. SHE OBLIGED BY THANKING ME AGAIN, STATING YOU OWE ME NOTHING.
IT IS NOW MY UNDERSTANDING, THAT AGAIN THE NEVADA RESEARCH LIBRARY WAS UNAWARE OF THIS BOOK, AND IT HAS BEEN LEARNED IT DOES EXIST IN 21 OTHER LIBRARIES OF THE WESTERN STATES

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.
