NDOW’s lack of planning kills bighorns

Nevada Hunters Association


In July, 2005 a couple riding on ATV’s discovered 22-24 dead desert sheep carcasses at the McCullough #3 water development in southern Nevada. At least 3 of the sheep were very large rams in the Boone & Crockett category. All the sheep appeared to have died in a close time range of each other.

The system doesn’t work

If a sportsman has an idea and wants to make a change on a hunting issue, what is the procedure? If it is an item that requires action, it must be presented to a county advisory board to manage wildlife (CABMW) three days prior to the meeting. If it is put on the CABMW agenda, it will be thoroughly discussed and voted upon.

More NDOW Mismanagement

During the last legislative session, Assemblyman Jerry Claborn asked the NDOW Director, Terry Crawforth if now that NDOW just received $7 million because of increases in fees, wasn’t there enough money to hire another biologist. Terry Crawforth emphatically stated no.

Did You Know??

Nevada Department of Wildlife has a sixteen page document on the use of force on sportsmen. It tells when they are allowed to shoot you and the rights of a game warden.

Nevada purges itself of its own Slick Willie

Two "slick Willies" are on their way out - one for certain, Willie Molini, Nevada Division of Wildlife Chief, who is finally being forced to retire by Governor Bob Miller; the other, our amorous president, who is rapidly finding himself friendless. Rats always instinctively know when it's time to abandon a sinking ship.

Tanner Lawsuit Update!

Just when you thought all of the slime had oozed out of NDOW's tactics against one of their own employees, NDOW showed they can get even slimier. On March 2, the attorney general's office filed a motion for a new trial. The main reason for wanting a new trial was that NDOW had some significant new evidence. Gee, I wonder what that could be? Are you ready for this? It seems as though when NDOW game wardens Roden and Chaves were illegally searching Barton Tanner's house, unbeknownst to Mr. Tanner, they were tape recording him. On March 24, Mr. Tanner's attorney filed with the court an opposition for a new trial. Here are excerpts from that court document

When the weak link is at the top, nothing works right below. This is particularly true of two state agencies, those being the Division of Wildlife and Attorney General's Office. In our lead story we told you how a good NDOW employee, Barton Tanner, was set up by his fellow employees, wardens Dennis Roden and Frank Chaves. The director of the Conservation and Natural Resources Department is Pete Morros. He was quoted in the Elko Daily Free Press as saying, "Roden and Chaves marked the fox three days before the season." Nothing could be further from the truth. In court documents, it is clearly stated that the fox was reported to be in the trap on December 18. Opening day of fox season is December 19. Warden Roden marked the fox on December 19. That is not three days but one day. When the head of a state agency doesn't know the facts how can the Division of Wildlife make informed judgments on this or any other case? With his statement, Mr. Morros proves the weak link is at the top.

"How low can youF go?" was a question that Chubby Checker asked in his hit record, "Limbo Rock". The same question could be asked of Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW). Their latest antics reek of gestapo tactics and were directed against one of their own employees.

Dear HUNTER'S ALERT I would like your members to know how bad our government is in the state of Nevada. Our governor is supposed to be our state leader here in Nevada. I was brought up to look at our leaders as people who look after things. They were the ones that people voted into office to do the right thing. But after my firsthand dealings, I can see I was wrong.

It all started in February, 1979 when my hunting partner, taxidermist Hagan Thompson and I returned from a very enjoyable African safari. Hagan's taxidermy shop was a one man operation so he had a young man watching his shop while we were on safari. Upon his return, the part-time employee notified Hagan that while he was away, two game wardens, one from the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and one from Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) came to the shop and seized his record book and skins.
