Last issue, HUNTER'S ALERT told you about a federal government agency called Wildlife Services. They do predator control, something NDOW refuses to do. The person calling the shots in NDOW must have been absent from biology class in high school. He failed to learn that coyotes were put on this earth to control rodents such as mice and rabbits, not eat the newborn fawn deer and antelope or domestic calves and lambs. NDOW must like the carnage on the defenseless newborn animals and their slow death because they have done nothing to prevent it. Here are more events that Wildlife Services performs and after seeing what is happening out in the wild, we will see why predator control is necessary. From Wildlife Services Bulletin, 2002

Finally, someone in NDOW has the guts to stand up and say our air operations are being diminished. According to Dave Rice, NDOW biologists have finally admitted what HUNTER'S ALERT has been saying for years.

Every year the Board of Regents does a performance evaluation on school presidents. How about every year doing a performance evaluation on the administrator of NDOW? The Wildlife commissioners need to realize that the best thing you can do for the future is to look back to the past.

It is the governor who makes the appointments to the Wildlife Commission. But Kenny Guinn relied on current commissioners for their suggestions on a nominee. It resulted in appointing Clint Bentley who was not the most qualified person. The person most qualified for this post was Wilford Allen.

In Assembly District 35

If you want hunting and fishing to get better, you need to put Marcia de Braga out to pasture. Any legislative wildlife bill that originates in the assembly must go to the Natural Resources Committee. She is the chairperson of that committee. Last session, Assembly Bill 494 would have done two things. First, it would take Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) from under the jurisdiction of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resource. This department has seven state agencies and there is not a person who can properly manage seven state agencies. NDOW is a state agency that is in desperate need of some supervision. To correct this, A.B. 494 would have put NDOW under the governor and the Wildlife Commission.

As the old saying goes, for every action there is a reaction. Sportsmen enjoy a fair big game tag draw. Why? Who is responsible for the Nevada Duck Stamp? We have more sportsmen on the Wildlife Commission than we have ever had. At last, there is money for predator control. Who is responsible for this? These good things for sportsmen did not happen all by themselves. All of these actions and many more that have helped hunters are because of Gerald Lent. It all started in 1978 when Reno optometrist Gerald Lent became involved in the legislative process. He has been to every legislative session since then fighting for hunters. It proves the old adage that one person can make a difference and never was it so evident as it was during the last legislative session.

Hunting and fishing is big business in the country. The most recent five-year survey by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service found that the nation's 13 million hunters age 16 or older spent 17.5 days on average in the field last year. For the 34 million U.S. anglers, that number was 16 days. On average, hunters spent $1,585 apiece on gear and trips, while anglers lightened their wallets to the tune of $1,046 each. Total spending by sportsmen in 2001: $55 Billion!

If NDOW were as good at predator control as they are at failed audits, predators would not be a problem in our state. NDOW never had an audit they couldn't fail. The most recent was another case of mismanagement which is hard to blame on drought, wildfires and bad winters.

One of NDOW's guiding principles is Obey the Law and Tell the Truth. With this in mind, NDOW recently distributed some new propaganda entitled Promises Kept. One of them was Predator Management Program. Is this a whopper or what? NDOW refused to do any predator management until last legislative session when AB291 was signed into law. In other words, it had to be made into law before NDOW would act. Forget about "promises kept" on this issue.
