This is in response to the article on Nevada Department of Wildlife and their suggestion of cutting the Deer Tag Quota for the upcoming season. First of all isn't it a coincidence that they decide to announce this after the April 22 tag application deadline? At least they got to collect all of the nonrefundable $10 fees. 1 am sure they could have looked at the harvest returns from last season and seen that the numbers were not there. They are worried about making their budget. If they were more forthcoming about this they would still get most of the money from the people who want to preserve what they grew up with and pass it on to the future generations.

HUNTER'S ALERT has lost three of its loyal supporters in the last year. All three had something in common: they all wanted to see the return of our deer herds.

Sportsmen in Churchill and White Pine Counties. If you want hunting to get better, you had better put Marcia de Braga out of office.

So you went to a sportsmen's banquet, you know, one of those organizations who do good things for big game, fish or birds. You paid too much for a ticket but you were doing the right thing. You bought $100 worth of raffle tickets knowing you probably weren't going to win anything. Maybe you even paid $700 for a $500 gun in the auction. But you knew you were doing something good for hunting, but were you?

The Nevada Animal Damage Control Program is a service whose purpose it is to protect the agricultural, natural, personal, and the human health resources of the citizens of Nevada from the threat of injury, damage or resource loss to wildlife activities. Here are a few of their findings in the past six months:

It is the function of the Wildlife Commissioners to set policy for the Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW). This is a tough job to do when you arc appointed to the Wildlife Commission without the knowledge to handle this important task. The only way to gain this vital experience is to attend county advisory board and Wildlife Commission meetings before you are appointed to the Wildlife Commission. Classic examples of people who were appointed as sportsmen's representatives to the Wildlife Commission without any idea of what the hell was going on in Nevada wildlife issues were Mahlon Brown, Jelindo Tiberti and Bill Bradley just to name a few. The three of them have a combined total of 26 years on the Wildlife Commission. Mr. Brown was chairman for all of his nine year term on the Wildlife Commission. With appointments like this, is it any wonder why we have lost our game and NDOW is deeply in debt? These commissioners and others did not have the knowledge to look at the big picture and solve problems. HUNTER'S ALERT has listed three problems they failed to address and solutions they didn't have the know-how to make NDOW adhere to.

At the 2001 NRA (National Rifle Association) Annual meeting, First Vice President Kayne B. Robinson gave a speech which contained the following: "Fish and game agencies should be graded on how friendly they are to hunters and gun owners. Agencies should be graded on the expansion of shooting areas, areas devoid of red tape. They should be judged by restrictions removed, closed roads and bridges opened, costs lowered, and numbers of hunters increased and game available."

Below are excerpts from the November, 1998 Field & Stream Magazine:
THE STORY THE MAP TOLD WAS PLAIN TO SEE: WHERE THE BIG CATS THRIVED, DEER DID NOT
By John Barsness

Recently I sat through an all-day meeting where a series of speakers explained the wonders they'd discovered in the wild world. After lunch we were all nodding off when a senior biologist from the game department of a Western state woke us up. "Here's a map of deer distribution, according to our latest surveys." A slide on the screen behind him showed dense red dots in areas with lots of deer. "Here's a map of mountain lion distribution." The same map, but the red dots now formed a negative of the first map. "Let me show you that a few more times." He clicked the controls and the two maps alternated on the screen: Where lots of lions lived, deer did not. "Now I went to high school, and college, and graduate school. In the scientific community, these maps don't prove anything. But I can figure them out." Later, in a private conversation, he said more. "Don't ever mention my name in print, because I'm three years from retirement and I want that pension. Many of my state's high-population lion areas are where lots of cattle graze public land. Lions rally like to eat calves, so lions can get by in cattle country even when deer populations drop. Normally, when deer go downhill, lion populations follow in a couple of years. But with cattle to fall back on, lion numbers don't drop much, so some are always there to whack away at the few deer that are left." I nodded. "But you've never said this, and never will."

Well, it s been a little over a year since my appointment as a wildlife commissioner and it has been eye-opening and interesting to say the least. When I first started, 1 took a sit-back, watch, learn and listen approach. Even though 1 had been on the county advisory board and have been involved in hunting and fishing for thirty plus years, I felt that 1 could learn a lot about what was going on, ongoing, upcoming, and the way the commission and the NDOW agency conducted business. In the past year, 1 have learned a lot.
