Mountain Lion Diet Study

By:  Cecil Fredi

A two year study has just been completed on mountain lions and muleys.  The results of this study show that 72% of lion diets are composed of deer.  Of course, no NDOW biologists would ever believe such a thing.  I would urge everyone to get the March/April 2013 issue of Muley Crazy magazine and read the story.

All wildlife is threatened by the Federal Wolf/predator agenda. The Federal employees who have infiltrated the ranks of the once great agencies, are now dismantling 80 years of sound scientific management of wildlife. The original intent of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, was to create an abundance of wildlife for hunting and non hunters. Hunters self regulated their pursuits, in order to better regulate the herds. New age science allows for the total collapse of a herd, then they spend years studying the effects of a failed policy.

Declining Deer Herds Spark Debate

Declining western deer herds have biologists, sportsman groups and environmentalists clashing over whether mountain lions and coyotes are largely to blame and should pay with their lives.

On one side are those who believe the number of deer predators should be reduced through targeted hunting programs. Others say factors such as the loss of natural habitat and wildfires are the issue.

How free of politics is science? During a legislative hearing, the idea of not allowing laymen—in this case the nine members of the Nevada State Wildlife Commission—to have mandatory authority over a “professional biologist” was debated.

An article written in the Deer Times, Fall 2007  by Floyd Green proves predator control works. The article entitled, “Managing Mountain Lions in a Desert Sheep Unit” shows when people open their minds and listen, they will realize the damage that lions are doing to our game . Following is a brief synopsis of the article along with HUNTER’S ALERT comments that will be emphasized in bold print.

 

In 1981, the Arizona Game & Fish Department (AGFD) supplemented Desert Sheep in Unit 22. Within a few years, the sheep population had grown and sport hunting was authorized in the area. The area turned out to be a premier area producing big rams. The area was so productive they were transplanting sheep from this unit to other units within the state.

SPORTSMEN SPEAK Summer 1998

"Cecil, I just wanted to send my support to you and HUNTER'S ALERT. I received the last issue and cannot believe what NDOW is capable of doing to one of their own. I have hunted Key Pittman on several occasions, always successful due in part to Bart Tanner's diligent game management, not to mention courteous manner in the field with hunters. Instead of harassing Bart, they should hire more like him. Keep up your great program and efforts." G.W., Las Vegas

SPORTSMEN SPEAK OUT ... AND KEEP ON SPEAKING

NDOW and the wildlife commissioners would like everyone to think that there are only one or two sportsmen who do not approve of the way our game is being managed. Nothing could be further from the truth. Former Wildlife Commission chairman Mahlon Brown used to refer to HUNTER'S ALHRT as the "small but vocal group". NDOW in their publication, Nevada Wildlife Almanac, referred to a "vocal sliver" of Nevada's hunters who opposed giving our sheep to Texas. HUNTER'S ALERT gets literally hundreds of letters, calls, or comments about NDOW's mismanagement. Listed below are but a few

At the May 4, 1996 Wildlife Commission meeting, two thousand sportsmen had written to Commissioner Cavin about their concerns regarding the mountain lion. Commissioner Cavin could not have represented the sportsmen any better. But as usual, the other Wildlife Commissioners did not listen to sportsmen's concerns. Here were Commissioner Gavin's comments. "But the 1945 post cards and 5 letters all say we've got to do something to reduce the mountain lions in the state of Nevada. And I think basically- -the big thing they're concerned with is the cost and it went everything in the reduction from bounties to trapping. The big thing is they want to drastically reduce the mountain lion population right now and they didn't much care how we did it. They also wanted to do it now. They want to see some action right now...they don't want to wait five years to get something done about it. It's kind of like the Desert Range now where the lion problem is a problem and we have known about it and we haven't done anything about it. That's then big concern...! might say that—I will say that the majority of them are unhappy as the devil about the Division and the Commission and the mountain lion situation the way it is today concerning the deer harvest. The number one problem is start doing something now. Don't wail till he five year plan to go into effect. We'd like to see some action right now." The post card sent jointly by HUNTER'S ALERT and Safari Club International Desert Chapter said: Dear Mr. Cavin: "Deer hunting is going downhill and I believe the mountain lions are the main reason. I want something done to reduce the number of mountain lions in our state. My Comments:

Below is just a sampling of some of the 1945 comments:
