Wildlife Commissioners fail Nevada sportsmen

In the past, HUNTER’S ALERT has been critical of some of the Wildlife commissioners, particularly the five who were appointed to represent sportsmen. Representation of sportsmen has been almost non-existent on their part. When you read the series of articles entitled It Happened that Way, it will upset most sportsmen.

Bud Says - January 9th 2006

As noted in the Draft Minutes of the May 14, 2005 Wildlife Commission meeting, then Chairman Tommy Ford had this to say about departing Wildlife commissioner Bill Bradley. Commissioner Bradley will be missed when the legislature reconvenes and he (Ford) asked him to stay on the Legislative Committee and he agreed to do so.

NDOW produces a newsletter called "The Wildlife Almanac". It is basically produced to pat itself on the back because very few others will. In the Fall/Winter 2003 edition, there was a very lengthy questionnaire. It was a full page requiring answering or rating over 100 questions. The questionnaire was sent out to 300,000 people as an insert in the Las Vegas Review Journal, Reno Gazette Journal, Ely Times and the Elko Daily Free Press.

From good friend to no friend

A public letter to Terry Crawforth

Being eighty years old now with time slipping away so fast, I am compelled to write this overdue letter to you, Terry Crawforth, to refresh your memory of my history that led to my becoming a victim of your corrupt system of which you are now the current director, NDOW. My problems started with the Fish and Game back in 1948 at the age of 23 in Hawthorne, Nevada with my intention of becoming a lion hunter in my naïve attempt to help control some of the livestock depredations the farmers and livestockmen were suffering. Two U.S. senators, Alan Bible and Howard Cannon fifty years ago were incited to go to Washington, D.C. to seek federal aid for Nevada’s serious predator problem. Terry Crawforth, after fifty years the problem still exists today--and worse--because of you.

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.

NDOW lies and covers it up with more lies!

In the January 4, 2004 Reno Gazette-Journal, an article entitled “Nevada’s Dangerous Crossings” appeared. In that article, it states “Wildlife officials estimate that between 1,000 and 2,000 deer are killed on Nevada roadways every year.”

1. NDOW excuses are up to ten and the number is rising for the decline of our deer but none of the excuses include predators.

Attention Hunters

In the next legislative session, just like the last one, NDOW and the Wildlife Commission have chosen to sell you out! (See story on page XX) If they have their way, sportsmen will have higher fees, no accountability for sportsmen’s money and many new laws designed to harass hunters. HUNTER’S ALERT finds it amazing that they received a 33 percent increase ($7 million) in the last legislative session and now they want more of sportsmen’s money without any accountability for their $28 million budget. Their legislative package contains no new game projects and the majority of it is more law enforcement. In addition, they refused to do anything in the way of predator control to bring back our deer. Is it stupidity or do they just not want to? No other reason is valid.

In our past writings, we have given you many examples of why Clint Bentley should not have been appointed to the Wildlife Commission.  Here are more reasons for his dismal failure. Mr. Bentley is a member of the Wildlife Damage Management Subcommittee. This is nothing more than a fancy name for a predator control committee which in itself has become a joke. Mr. Bentley should never have even been on this subcommittee as on numerous occasions in the past he has failed to react about the abundance of mountain lions in our state. At a meeting on May 13, 2004 in Reno, Gerald Lent, President of Nevada Hunters Association told the committee it was not doing what the predator money was intended for and that NDOW had never supported this predator program.

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.
