My name is Cecil Fredi. I am representing HUNTER'S ALERT. At the January Wildlife Commission meeting in Henderson, Chairman Brown stated that he wanted more input on the lion issue. He also made the same statement at the February meeting in Reno. HUNTER'S ALERT in conjunction with Safari Club International Desert Chapter decided to give the chairman the input that he was seeking^ I will address this input later on but I would like to make a few points first.

Nevada hunters take notice!

Kayne Robinson replaced Charlton Heston as president of the NRA (National Rifle Association) on April 28, 2003. He is a straight forward, tell-it-like-it-is sort of guy. In the Shot Business magazine (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) of January, 2004 he gave an interview and one of the questions asked of him was “What do you see as the barriers to the continuation of the shooting sports?”  Following is his response in its entirety to this question.  We will then compare his concerns to what Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) is doing.

To the editor:

As an avid hunter who rarely draws a deer tag, I feel the need to comment on the article about Willie Molini's retirement. (RJ, 12/18). Over the past years I have watched the Division of Wildlife self-destruct. Nevada was at one time one of the finest mule deer states in the west. This is only a memory now. Willie Molini was wrong when he said most hunters do not blame him for our decline in deer numbers. Every time the subject is brought up among other hunters, they do blame him. He also said other wildlife groups speak highly of him. They are mostly anti-hunting groups who do not contribute funds to the Division or groups Willie Molini has done favors for.

Senate Bill 127 was requested by HUNTER'S ALERT for a bill draft almost a year before the 1997 legislative session was to begin. One of the most important parts of this bill was that all county advisory boards to manage wildlife would submit nominations to the governor of qualified people for appointment to the Wildlife Commission. The governor would then be required to select from these lists. Knowledgeable people who have attended county advisory board and Wildlife Commission meetings would then have a chance to be appointed to the Commission. These are people who have donated their time without pay or perks involved. People who know fish and game issues, not just who know the governor. This is grass roots government - for the people -by the people.

Call it youth, call it inexperience, or call it something less kind but Wildlife Commissioner Jelindo Tiberti showed why he should not have been re-appointed to the Wildlife Commission. At the January Wildlife Commission meeting Tiberti challenged HUNTER'S ALERT to prove that Nevada Division of Wildlife had purchased $25,000 worth of books from Defenders of Wildlife, a proven antihunting organization. The majority of sportsmen in attendance wanted something done about the mountain lion in our state. But Commissioner Tiberti chose not to represent them and instead to try to find fault with the HUNTER'S ALERT newsletter.

You would have thought Commissioner Tiberti would have learned his lesson since HUNTER'S ALERT subsequently J issued a challenge to him. If HUNTER'S ALERT could not prove the expenditure was made, then Mr. Tiberti could buy a table at our banquet. Mr. Tiberti failed to respond knowing fully well he shot himself in the boot and could not back it up.

At the January 20, 1996 Wildlife Commission meeting, administrator Molini sang the praises of the Division regarding the fact that the Division has not been taken to court by the antis over the hunting of mountain lion in our state. He stated, Twenty years ago we started an intensive mountain lion study. David Ashman was our biologist, our lead biologist. That was his full-time job. We marked over 100 mountain lions and determined home ranges with a total effort at trying to determine the mountain lion population in this state. We have had individuals, and most of you on the Commission know them, tracking our mountain lion progress for that twenty years. We have never been to court. Those same people took us to court twice on bobcats and they failed both times. I believe firmly and I might be wrong, but I believe that they have not taken us to court on mountain lions because we have had good data, we've had a good harvest program, it hasn't been challengeable in court and I think we have been in the lead on this business."

HUNTER'S ALERT responds: Mr. Molini, you have done exactly

what the antis wanted. They do not want hunters of any type. They want predator numbers to increase in order to harvest the surplus game birds and animals. That's exactly what has taken place and because of this they aren't going to take you to court. You are the best friend they have. However, to the sportsmen of our state who have lost 70% of the deer population and the majority of the sheep on Sheep Mountain, you are a disgrace. Many people believe that when you resign, retire, or get fired, you will go "green" HUNTER'S ALERT would certainly not doubt that!

Good morning. My name is Cecil Fredi. I am president of HUNTER'S ALERT. What has caused all the furor over the mountain lion? To answer this question, we must start with the very basic question, what is hunting? Hunting exists for one reason: It is the humane way to harvest surplus game birds and animals. If there were no surplus, do we need hunters and hunting? The answer is absolutely not. If you were an anti-hunter, how would you insure that there is no surplus? You would protect predators and let them remove the surplus. That's exactly what the antis are doing to eliminate hunting. Mountain lion protection is a pure and simple anti-hunting measure.

Nevada Division of Wildlife Administrator Willie Molini, Tina Nappe, and Pete Morros were walking the halls of the legislature together in opposition of A.B.307. That brings us to a question. Have you ever shot a big old mallard duck flying with a covey of quail? Hardly! Why? Because birds of a feather flock together!

In the past, HUNTER'S ALERT has been somewhat critical of the Wildlife Commission for not standing up to the anti-hunters. At last, they chose to exert a little force. During the July Wildlife Commission meeting in Elko, Jan Rogers, an anti-hunting activist from Reno, was in the middle of her anti-hunting speech when Chairman Mahlon Brown had heard enough! He very emphatically told her that she was through testifying when she compared teaching our youth to hunt and to utilize the meat to the heinous crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer. HUNTER'S ALERT applauds Mahlon for his stance.

Recently HUNTER'S ALERT attended the Friends of National Rifle Association banquet in Las Vegas. We sat at a table with some strangers and after introducing ourselves, of course the conversation turned to guns, hunting, and politics.
