The truth has now been exposed. For years, Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) has used many excuses for their mismanagement of our deer herds. In 1988, there were 250,000 deer in Nevada. Today, NDOW’s estimates are 107,000 and that number is in actuality probably a lot lower. The excuses that NDOW has used for the past thirteen years are drought, wildfire, bad winter, juniper pinion pine and cheat grass. Of course, NDOW never mentioned predators or other mismanagement for the decline.

For those of you who think all politicians are tnahe same, this article should change your opinion. In the 2001 legislative session, HUNTER’S ALERT sponsored Assembly Bill 494. This bill would have given NDOW a boss, something they didn’t have under the jurisdiction of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. There were many other benefits for sportsmen in this bill as well. Any legislative wildlife bill that originates in the Assembly must go to the Natural Resources Committee.

In October, 2003 NDOW is doing another survey. (NDOW doesn’t know what to do) Three years ago, in October, 2000, a survey requested by the Wildlife Commission was completed. This was a mule deer survey. Sportsmen had to pay approximately $25,000 for this survey.

Last year’s deer harvest was the lowest in fifty years. Why did this happen? Or a better question yet would be, "Who let this happen?" For fourteen years, NDOW has had their usual five excuses: drought, wildfire, bad winter, juniper-pinion pine and cheat grass. But, alas, they have added some new ones---not their mismanagement or their refusal to do any predator control.

In 1867, D.C. Wheeler trailed a band of domestic sheep from Oregon to western Nevada. Since that time, there has been some type of predator control conducted in and around sheep herds in Nevada. In 1927, there were reported to be 1,200,000 sheep and 400,000 beef cattle in the state. Each stockman or groups of stockmen fought their own predator problems. After World War One, the federal government took over the predator program. Under the Biological Survey, professional hunters were hired to pursue coyotes, bobcats, and mountain lion. In 1939, 93,000 coyotes were reported killed throughout the state of Nevada. Counties also paid bounties on coyotes and lions. The longhair fur industry became important and private fur trappers harvested many coyotes and bobcats.

The future of Nevada deer hunting is bleak. It has taken years of mismanagement by Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) to destroy our once famous deer herds. And it will take years for these herds to recover. The fault lies with the Wildlife Commission, former administrator Willie Molini and current director Terry Crawforth. Terry Crawforth has held this position for five years. Let’s review his list of non-accomplishments during his tenure.
