HUNTER S ALERT has been very successful in past legislative sessions. This is due to the many senators and assemblymen and assemblywomen who have supported sportsmen s concerns. Without their efforts, many sportsmen s bills would not have become law.

Like it or not, sportsmen are in a chess game with the antihunting groups. By being passive, sportsmen will accomplish nothing. The antis are not passive. Quite the contrary, they are coming at us continually from all directions. It is for this reason that it is up to the sportsmen to elect prohunting legislators. HUNTER S ALERT cannot do this for you. It is up to you. You can be passive and lose or take the time to vote. It is a simple choice. Make the right one!!

For a decade, sportsmen had a governor who was not concerned about their issues. It was akin to Rome burning while Nero fiddled. Translated, our deer numbers were declining while Governor Miller and Wildlife administrator Willie Molini did nothing about it. (except blame Mother Nature) Fortunately for sportsmen and our natural resource both of them have been put out to pasture and now the long process of rebuilding has begun.

My first meeting as a Wildlife commissioner for our state was both enlightening and rewarding. My family and I have had the privilege of living in Nevada since the late 1940 s and in attending the recent meeting in Ely I had the opportunity to meet many dedicated outdoorsmen who not only value but also protect our important natural resources. The many people I saw and spoke with give unselfishly of their time and have a real personal commitment to the preservation, continuation, and well-being of our game and other important outdoor resources. 1 wish to thank Governor Guinn for giving me the appointment and chance to serve our great state and its people while working hand in hand together on this valuable commission. One of my first tasks will be to fulfill my assignment to the committee for the Overton Wildlife Management Area. I look forward to working with the interested citizens from this area as well as with the Clark County Advisory Board and NDOW staff to create an important wildlife area to be enjoyed by all outdoor enthusiasts alike. By working closely together we can achieve positive wildlife goals for Overton and our great state which is long overdue. I welcome the task and look forward to rolling up my sleeves with all of you as one of your Wildlife commissioners.

I am deeply grateful to be appointed to the Wildlife Commission. I want to thank Governor Kenny Guinn for having the confidence in me to select me for this very important position. I feel very fortunate to represent the sportsmen and sportswomen of Nevada.

I have lived in Nevada for fifty years, five years in Washoe County and the past forty five years in Clark County. I am very aware of the good, the bad and the ugly of wildlife issues in our state. I will do my best to see that sportsmen s agendas are well represented.

My first committee assignment is the Bighorn Sheep Management Planning Team. This team will be responsible for addressing all management and concerns regarding why, how, when and where we harvest bighorn sheep in Nevada. I am very excited about being able to help with this issue.

For years I have donated money to wildlife and wildlife conservation organizations. Now I can donate time. I have watched the different groups working on projects and I have learned that donating money was the easy part. Again, I wish to pledge that I will do what is best for the natural resource and all sportsmen and women of Nevada.

More Good News!

Pete Morros, director of Conservation and Natural Resources has announced his resignation effective August 1, 2000. This is a person who had been in government much too long. (38 years)

We informed our readers in the Summer, 1999 issue how Pete Morros neglected sportsmen for years. We also told you in our last issue how bad Pete Morros was as illustrated by direct quotes from the July, 1999 Wildlife Commission meeting.

Let’s not overlook the fact that not one sportsmen s organization in the state wanted Terry Crawforth appointed as administrator. Pete Morros chose to ignore this and appoint him anyway. By the way, Terry Crawforth has had the job for two years and what has he done to return our deer herds? Thanks, Pete. You won t be missed by the sportsmen!

Another NDOW Survey

Surveys are compiled for many reasons and much can be learned from them. NDOW did a survey in 1994. The results of this survey were compiled by NDOW. Of course, the results of this survey were never made public. One can only assume that there were more negative comments than positive about NDOW so the results were never released.

We read with interest every issue of Hunter s Alert as my wife and I are long time avid deer hunters in northeastern Nevada. I must say that we are also disgusted with the downward spiral NDOW has been in for at least the past ten years to the gross detriment of especially the magnificent deer herds in our part of Nevada. Living at the base of the Ruby Mountains this past ten years, winter ranging deer spend nearly six months physically in our yard at the house, light and heavy winters. This up close daily living among the deer at close range has revealed many details to us that few hunters and apparently no NDOW biologists, or Carson City appointees have opportunity to learn about these mule deer.

Think About It

When you remove the cattle from the land, which is what the environmentalists want, the grass grows. When there is a lot of grass, especially dead grass, it is easier for a wild fire to start. Simply put, no cows, more grass, more fires. Haven t we had a lot more fires in recent years? Shouldn’t some of the blame for all these wild fires be attributed to the cattle-free greenies who want to protect the forest?
