Many organizations like the labor unions and the teachers unions grade our elected officials. HUNTER'S ALERT would like to grade Governor Miller on his effectiveness in office. For the sportsmen in our state, your grade is "F". You have failed them miserably.

Recently HUNTER'S ALERT attended the Friends of National Rifle Association banquet in Las Vegas. We sat at a table with some strangers and after introducing ourselves, of course the conversation turned to guns, hunting, and politics.

Pastor Martin Niemoller made the following statement at the time of his arrest by the Gestapo in 1937:

"In Germany, they came first for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then, they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then, they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.

To paraphrase:

"In America, they came first for the machine guns, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a machine gunner. Then, they came for the handguns, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a handgunner. Then, they came for the semi-autos, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a semi-auto owner. Then they came for the competitor, and I didn't speak up because I was a hunter. Then, they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." REPRINTED FROM: J & G SALES NEWSLETTER, January 1994

To paraphrase once again: "They outlawed 1080 poison for coyotes and I didn't speak up because I am a hunter. They protected hawks, owls, and ravens but I didn't speak up because I am a hunter. They took the land and called it wilderness but I didn't speak up because I am a hunter. They reintroduced the wolf but I didn't speak up because I am a hunter. Then they outlawed hunting and by that time there were no hunters left to speak up." Cecil Fredi, HUNTER'S ALERT

HUNTER'S ALERT endorses the following candidates for public office. Our decision was based on the candidates' support of our legislative agenda which includes legislation to return to a Department of Fish and Game concept where all monies derived from hunting and fishing licenses, tags, stamps and matching funds are returned to hunting and fishing programs. Please support these candidates as they understand our concerns and support our issues.

Sincerely,

Cecil Fredi,

President, HUNTERS ALERT

FEAR OF REPRISAL

Many guides have come forth acknowledging what a serious predator problem we have in our state but they were reluctant to put it in writing because of fear of reprisal from NDOW. Doesn't that bring to mind visions of World War II Nazi SS troops who persecuted people for speaking out against their government? We have secured statements from some of these guides with the promise that we will not use their names for fear of reprisal. We will call them Guides A, B and C. Below are their stories.

The 1992-93 winter-on the heels of a six-year drought in many states-triggered the mule deer decline, say wildlife officials in all affected states. But deeper-rooted factors led up to the collapse. Increasing numbers of predators played a hand, and politically driven, short-sighted management was also to blame.

While sitting around the campfire one evening an old rancher posed this question to us. What was the best caliber of gun for game? Of course, this isn't a one caliber answer. Obviously, you don't take a 17 caliber to hunt elephants or a .458 to hunt squirrel. After everyone gave their pitch for his favorite caliber, the old rancher settled the dispute. What was the best caliber for game? The old man said a 22 single shot. Of course, there were snickers and hoots. But he went on to explain. When a rancher or farmer had a son, one of his first birthday or Christmas presents was a 22 single shot rifle. The rifle itself was very inexpensive, ammo was cheap, and by being a single shot it taught the value of accuracy. Now the boy went out and he didn't set up 25 or 50 yard paper targets. He shot magpies, crows, ravens, hawks, skunks, raccoons. What he shot were predators and it was legal to do. In doing so, he helped increase game numbers.

I never really thought too much about it when he told the story. But as I look at our game situation today compared to the way it was in the past, the old man was telling the truth. Ah, yes, if we could just return to the past.
