HUNTER'S ALERT in southern Nevada and Nevada Hunters Association in northern Nevada are again leading the way for sportsmen throughout the state. Assemblyman David Humke has again proven himself to be the champion of all sportsmen with his important announcement at the HUNTER'S ALERT banquet. Assemblyman Humke has requested a bill draft for the next

Senator Ann O'Connell at the request of HUNTER'S ALERT introduced a bill to put into Nevada Revised Statutes a law requiring the Division of Wildlife to contract out for the big game tag drawings. The 1991 legislature enacted Senate Bill 506 which was co-sponsored by HUNTER'S ALERT and Nevada Hunters Association. This bill was for the development of a computer program for the issuance of big game tags. However, this did not exclude NDOW from involvement in the big game tag draw. It was for this reason that Senate Bill 211 was introduced by Senator O'Connell in the 1999 legislature.

Sportsmen realize that we have too many lions and because of this our deer numbers have remained low for years. So what did NDOW propose for the 1999 seasons? They wanted a whopping increase of 69% (3,780) more does killed. In addition, they requested 22% (70) fewer lion tags to be allotted. Please note, this is not a misprint. The reason for these numbers? Get ready, sit down and hold on to your chair. The reason: In 1992 they overestimated, repeat—overestimated how many deer we have. Let's see, they overestimated one year so seven years later, they increase doe tags by 69%! Would someone with some common sense explain this reasoning process?

If HUNTER'S ALERT has a failing, it is that we occasionally don't get our newsletter out in a timely manner. There is a reason for this. Every day HUNTER'S ALERT is doing something for the hunters.

Former governor Bob Miller claimed to be tough on mining. He left office in January, 1999. In that same month he was appointed to the board of directors of Newmont Mining. He didn 't have the pride to let the chair in the governor' office cool down before accepting that appointment. Does anyone smell a rat here?

The graphs on Pages 9 and 10 show the demise of our deer during the last ten years of former governor Bob Miller's and Willie Molini's administrations. Let's put a pencil to these numbers and show the money sportsmen have lost because of these two losers. The difference in deer tag sales the year before Bob Miller took office and his last year in office was 30,837 fewer deer tags. The cost of a Nevada hunting license, tag and application fee is $49.00. If you multiply the loss of tags by this amount, it is SI.5 million. Multiply that by three times federal matching funds and we get $4.5 million. Is it any wonder that Willie had to invent new ways to extract money from hunters? That $4.5 million would buy helicopters and a whole lot of game programs. Thanks for the memories, all bad!

 It just hasn't worked and we need to return to a Department of Fish and Game. During the 1993 legislative session, former Governor Bob Miller consolidated state agencies. This has proven disastrous to the sportsmen in the state of Nevada. Since consolidation, Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) has been one of nine state agencies put under the umbrella of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Its director is Pete Morros. There is not a single person who can do the job efficiently for nine state agencies. And Pete Morros has proven this many times over.

But not Nevada. We don’t have a predator problem!?

For the last ten years, HUNTER'S ALERT has told NDOW that we have a predator problem. For ten years, NDOW has acted like a deaf mule with blinders. They are stubborn and do not see or hear anything when it comes to predators. Below are excerpts from various publications proving that western states have predator problems but that they are also doing something about them. HUNTER'S ALERT has stated for years that until we get a new administrator who chooses to go in a different direction, nothing is going to change NDOW'S motto of "We don't have a predator problem."

In our last newsletter, HUNTER'S ALERT and Nevada Hunters Association requested new administrator Terry Crawforth to answer a few questions and respond to them in writing. Terry Crawforth failed to respond to any and all of the questions. One of the questions asked by Nevada Hunters Association was: The former director was criticized for his extensive travel. Do you plan to run the agency or run all over the country? The new administrator has had the job for a year. Here are a few memos from him.

The slate's chief big-game biologist is facing allegations that insider information may have allowed key Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife employees to gain an unfair advantage in winning restricted and highly prized hunting tags. The internal agency investigation follows a four-week investigation by the Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County district attorney's office in Portland, where the Department of Fish and Wildlife has its headquarters.
