ARE ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES MISMANAGED?

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.

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.

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.

A BOOK WORTH READING

Finally, someone has the intestinal fortitude to expose the animal rights groups for what they really are. Kathleen Marquardt has written a book called "Animal Scam". It is a must read for all hunters, trappers and ranchers. To order the book, call (406) 442-5700. Following are a few excerpts from "Animal Scam".

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.

FEAR OF REPRISAL

Many guides have come forth acknowledging what a serious predator problem we have in our state but they were reluctant to put it in writing because of fear of reprisal from NDOW. Doesn't that bring to mind visions of World War II Nazi SS troops who persecuted people for speaking out against their government? We have secured statements from some of these guides with the promise that we will not use their names for fear of reprisal. We will call them Guides A, B and C. Below are their stories.
