At Last

HUNTER’S ALERT has been critical of the Wildlife Commission and for good reasons. However, a little praise could be in order for one of the current members. Commissioner Jim Jeffress is working on a proposal to shift NDOW’s law enforcement to the Department of Public Safety. Here are some of Commissioner Jeffress’ findings:

Currently there is a best-selling book by Bernard Goldberg titled One Hundred People who are Screwing up America. The book names these people and the destruction they have done. Playing on this theme, it occurred to me, why not let all Nevadans, especially sportsmen, know who screwed up this state’s wonderful deer herd by exposing the corrupt public officials who were and are responsible. Through research and investigation I have settled on these following ten as the most notorious culprits of destruction.

LIVING LEGENDS

(A Pitiful Tale of Waste and Deception)

Nevada's wild horses are descendants of domestic horses that either escaped or someone turned loose. Contrary to popular and misguided belief, wild horses arc not native to Nevada. However, in a fit of divine intervention, our infinitely wise congress declared these feral creatures to be wild. Congress also required the bureaucrats to manage horses as an integral part of the natural system. Here are some interesting tidbits obtained from BLM (Bureau of Land Management) records. From 1973 to 1995, BLM spent over $214.000.000 (yes. million) administering the wild horse and burro program. From 1973 to 1993, BLM spent 58% ($93,500,000) of the wild horse budget on un-adoptable horses housed in feedlots. Most disturbing is BLM's overhead cost rose from 11% in 1985 to 32% in 1995.

DID YOU KNOW

When Governor Miller took office, Willie Molini's salary was $50,728. Today it is $58,204. His assistant, Terry Crawforth makes $55,801. Ed. note: Willie's raise certainly couldn't have been based on the merit system!

...In 1990, 18% of Nevada Department of Wildlife's budget was spent on non-game. This year it will be 25.82%!

...At one time, New Zealand had so many game animals that there were no seasons, licenses, or limits. WHY? They hadn't hunted them for 40 years and there were no predators.

PREDATION, THE UNSEEN ENEMY

For the last 17 of my 30 years trapping career, I have been involved in Predator Control Management on livestock In the course of trapping, calling, denning and flying, you get to sec a lot of livestock and wildlife deaths caused by predation. You are out at all times of the day and all season. You cover 3000-4000 square miles so you see predation over a large geographical area.

WANT HUNTING SUCCESS? GO ELSEWHERE!

In September of this year I made a hunting trip to South Africa. Upon my return home, I recounted to my friends and family the enjoyment, excitement, and great hunting experience I had. After they left, I was relaxing and reminiscing about the hunt when a thought crossed my mind. "Why did I have to travel to Africa to hunt?" It wasn't the exotic animals, the excitement of travel, or hopes for adventure. It was the hunt itself. The love of hunting and being able to hunt hired me to a country half way round the world. Of course, like all hunters I wanted to be successful.

ISNT IT AMAZING!

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game completed a study in 1991. The results show that Alaska's moose, caribou, and wild sheep die as follows: 87.5% to wolves and bears (predators); 10% to miscellaneous; and 2.5% to human harvest (hunters).
