At the February Wildlife Commission meeting in Reno, Chairman Mahlon Brown wondered about the lion population figures. (If there are really that many lions in our state). He told of recently speaking with a group of hunters who came across twelve freshly killed deer. The hunters said that coyotes killed ten of the deer. That brings us to this question. What have NDOW and the Wildlife Commission done about the coyotes?

THEY'RE NOT JUST LION AROUND

The state of California has had enough. After losing a $2 million suit to the parents of a five-year old girl who was mauled in a public park, and with a number of other lion lawsuits pending, members of the California legislature have approved legislation to place Proposition 197 on the March 26th Primary ballot. The measure, if passed, would require the state to manage its exploding mountain lion population.

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.

LET'S TELL THE WHOLE STORY

At the January Wildlife Commission meeting, the commissioners heaped praise on NDOW for assembling the "Comprehensive Mountain Lion Management Plan". This draft consists of 114 pages and the majority of this information comes from a study done over a ten year period from approximately 1972 to 1982. At that time it was estimated that there were 792 lions in the state. This study was called 'The Mountain Lion in Nevada" and David Ashman was the chief biologist responsible for this publication. Listed below are some findings of David Ashman's which were not included in NDOW's "Comprehensive Mountain Lion Management Plan" and comments from HUNTER'S ALERT

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

It started years ago with the direction of Nevada Division of Wildlife. The people of NDOW didn't know where their revenue was being generated. In the Game Division, deer hunters furnished the largest portion of NDOW revenue. Because of mismanagement, they lost 70% of the deer herd by falling to control predators.

EDITORIAL

HUNTER'S ALERT doesn't always get our newsletter out on time. There is a good reason for this. First, there are no paid employees in our organization with the exception of our lobbyist. We find ourselves pulled in several different directions at one time trying to determine which issues to address next.

HUNTERS AND FISHERMEN, WAKE UP!

Our group has consistently tried to represent hunting and fishing interests in Nevada by attending Wildlife Commission meetings and initiating and supporting legislation in the interests of the thousands of sportsmen in this state. We have even supported legislation to increase the number of sportsmen on the Wildlife Commission and also to have sportsmen on the County Boards decide on who is appointed as a commissioner to represent their interests.

HUNTER'S ALERT has been saying it for years and never has it been more evident. The people appointed as sportsmen to the Wildlife Commission are not representing them. The exception is Don Cavin who is outnumbered and its too early to evaluate Bill Bradley. However, the majority, Chairman Brown, Commissioners Tiberti and Matorian have been a disappointment to the sportsmen they are supposed to represent. They have shown their true colors (green) over the mountain lion issue.

Reprinted from OUTDOOR LIFE, October, 1994

The 1992-93 winter-on the heels of a six-year drought in many states-triggered the mule deer decline, say wildlife officials in all affected states. But deeper-rooted factors led up to the collapse. Increasing numbers of predators played a hand, and politically driven, short-sighted management was also to blame.
