JUNE 19, 2002

I am proposing that when a person buys a hunting license, there will be a punch-out spot on the license to validate that a mountain lion has been harvested. Currently when a person harvests a mountain lion, he must report it to NDOW within 72 hours. This would remain in effect and at that time, the person harvesting the mountain lion must pay the lion harvest fee.

I have read many horror stories committed by NDOW but I never thought that I would be a target of one of their Gestapo tactics. In September, 20011 received a phone call from Nevada Division of Wildlife. They wanted to talk with me about another individual who was possibly involved with a dead sheep found in the Arrow Mountains. I agreed to speak with them. Unbeknownst to me, they were already on my property when they called. They arrived at my door within moments. They questioned me for 45 minutes at which time I asked "Do you think I did it?" They responded that I was not only a suspect, but the suspect. Knowing that I had nothing to hide, I answered all questions. I showed them all of my guns and ammunition. They were offered the opportunity to take any of them that they chose to take. They looked over the truck for my tire tread. "Yeah, this is the only one." was their comment to each other. This truck with these tires had not been in the Arrow Mountains within that time frame, (the last 6 months)

When it comes to predator control, NDOW prefers to do nothing or to make excuses. Whichever one they use, they excel at both. In the Las Vegas Review Journal (July 31, 2002) NDOW's Conservation Education Bureau Chief Kelly Clark said "If hunters had been allowed to take more deer, then we would not have had this mortality this spring. We need to reduce numbers in order to have habitat that's strong and keep the herd viable." Can you believe this ridiculous statement? With what few deer we have left, let's kill more? In addition, the article stated that studies in other western states have shown that reduction in the number of predators doesn't necessarily translate into increases in numbers of big game animals. HUNTER'S ALERT would like you to read the following article from Peterson's HUNTING (Sept. 1999) and see who you believe..

How much more mismanagement is NDOW going to do before the governor, Mike Turnipseed (NDOW boss) or the Wildlife Commission who set policy for NDOW do something to change NDOW's direction? NDOW continually blames their mismanagement on wildfires, drought and bad winters. This one is hard to blame on Mother Nature.

One of NDOW's guiding principles is Obey the Law and Tell the Truth. With this in mind, NDOW recently distributed some new propaganda entitled Promises Kept. One of them was Predator Management Program. Is this a whopper or what? NDOW refused to do any predator management until last legislative session when AB291 was signed into law. In other words, it had to be made into law before NDOW would act. Forget about "promises kept" on this issue.

Listed below are the candidates that HUNTER'S ALERT is endorsing for the General Election on Tuesday, November 5, 2002. These candidates were selected because they have supported hunters or gun ownership. None of them have paid a fee to HUNTER'S ALERT for their endorsement. Please consider voting for these candidates as they will hold the future of hunting in the state of Nevada.

If NDOW were as good at predator control as they are at failed audits, predators would not be a problem in our state. NDOW never had an audit they couldn't fail. The most recent was another case of mismanagement which is hard to blame on drought, wildfires and bad winters.

Hunting and fishing is big business in the country. The most recent five-year survey by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service found that the nation's 13 million hunters age 16 or older spent 17.5 days on average in the field last year. For the 34 million U.S. anglers, that number was 16 days. On average, hunters spent $1,585 apiece on gear and trips, while anglers lightened their wallets to the tune of $1,046 each. Total spending by sportsmen in 2001: $55 Billion!

As the old saying goes, for every action there is a reaction. Sportsmen enjoy a fair big game tag draw. Why? Who is responsible for the Nevada Duck Stamp? We have more sportsmen on the Wildlife Commission than we have ever had. At last, there is money for predator control. Who is responsible for this? These good things for sportsmen did not happen all by themselves. All of these actions and many more that have helped hunters are because of Gerald Lent. It all started in 1978 when Reno optometrist Gerald Lent became involved in the legislative process. He has been to every legislative session since then fighting for hunters. It proves the old adage that one person can make a difference and never was it so evident as it was during the last legislative session.

In Assembly District 35

If you want hunting and fishing to get better, you need to put Marcia de Braga out to pasture. Any legislative wildlife bill that originates in the assembly must go to the Natural Resources Committee. She is the chairperson of that committee. Last session, Assembly Bill 494 would have done two things. First, it would take Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) from under the jurisdiction of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resource. This department has seven state agencies and there is not a person who can properly manage seven state agencies. NDOW is a state agency that is in desperate need of some supervision. To correct this, A.B. 494 would have put NDOW under the governor and the Wildlife Commission.
