It just wasn't the year. Anyone who wants to have better hunting and fishing in our state would like to have seen a department of fish and game independent of the Department of Wildlife. This would mean all hunting and fishing money and matching funds would go back into hunting and fishing programs.

What have you done for me lately? We've all heard that old cliche But what have you done to save your hunting lately? Sure, you belong to one of the many fine sportsman's organizations like Ducks Unlimited. When you left their annual banquet after buying raffle tickets and an auction purchase, you felt good inside knowing you had done your part to help waterfowl. But what is Ducks Unlimited doing to ensure hunters will be able to hunt ducks in five, ten, or twenty years? The same is true for many other well-meaning outdoor organizations.

On May 14,1993 HUNTER'S ALERT held its first annual fund raising dinner and raffle/auction. There were over 250 people in attendance and some came from as far away as Tuscarora, Eureka, and Reno. The guest speakers were Senator Bill O'Donnell, Assemblyman Larry Spitler and Clark County Wildlife Advisory Board Chairman, Bob Snider.

Assemblyman Larry Spitler was masterful in his presentation. He told those in attendance how hunters and fishermen in our state were being ripped off because of the waste and mismanagement by Nevada Department of Wildlife. He cited the many failed audits to prove this. The ironic thing is that Assemblyman Spitler does not hunt or fish.

HUNTER'SALERT thanks all those who attended and especially, our donors. These are the people who want to make hunting and fishing better for everyone in our state, not just the few with self-serving interests.

Each legislative session, hundreds of bills are introduced and many eventually become Nevada law. The challenge is for each legislator to get up-to-date on these issues as quickly as possible. While all legislators bring a vast background of experience, it's impossible to have all the background necessary in all the areas needed and that's where you become very important to the process of assuring good government.

The Problem

THE PROBLEM: Governor Miller, the Wildlife Commission, and Nevada Department of Wildlife Director Will Molini are the people directly responsible for the disappearance of our game. For years they have been told about this serious problem but refused to do anything to correct it. HUNTER'S ALERT is featuring articles from around Nevada. We realize it will not do any good with the people responsible for creating this dismal situation. But, readers, remember that next year is election year and we can do something about it then!

As another severe critic of the Wildlife Department for their disgraceful inequities and mismanagement of our deer herds and wildlife, I personally and wholeheartedly endorse and support your crusade, efforts, and allegations that are directed at and pertain to Molini and the unscrupulous conduct and lack of good judgement practiced and demonstrated by the present adamant staff. The department, in my estimation, demonstrated by conduct now has developed into a big and powerful political bureaucracy with the blessings of the politically appointed commission members who are actually at the mercy of the biologically indoctrinated wildlife department staff. What qualifications do these politically appointed individuals have in order to discuss, disagree, or ability to make corrections and recommendations to be followed responsibly?

My opinion is that wildlife commissioners are not much different from the jurors that serve on a grand jury investigation. These individuals' names are drawn out of a contained list of individuals off the streets, so to speak. Like any attorney or commissioner, what chance and wildlife knowledge do they have to serve them against an educated staff of biologists. These are professionals with a well prepared barrage of answers using all of their biological scientific terminology to intimidate and embarrass such individuals with limited educations. This is the biggest reason they manage to end up getting their way. They have all the answers and explanations for the commissioners to sit there and just listen, while they receive their biology lesson for the day. Most politicians (Wildlife commissioners) lack the experience and wildlife knowledge to criticize and refute these experts at their own game. I would welcome the opportunity to serve on one of these juries.

I guess the anti-hunting movement really started about thirty yean ago. It was going to be easy for them to accomplish their goal, just outlaw guns. This didn't get very far because guns are used for many other purposes and because of opposition from a very strong National Rifle Association.

I want to commend the Nevada State Rifle and Pistol Association, and Hunter's Alert in their efforts to change the makeup of the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

Since the government began to discourage trapping and began systematically cutting back on predator control, we have lost nearly all of our deer, and we're losing our Mountain Sheep too.
