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.

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.

Recent highly publicized attacks on humans and domestic animals by mountain lions in California could lead to that state's voters reversing a 1990 initiative that removes mountain lions from management by the state's wildlife agency and sets aside $30 million a year for 30 years for purchasing California wildlife habitat.

Excerpt from "The Utah Trapper"

Back in 1975 in the spring and early summer, the Montana Department of Feb., Wildlife and Parks discovered that nearly every mule deer fawn that they studied in the Missouri Breaks was eventually lost to coyotes. In Nebraska, a two year study was initiated. According to Karl Menzel, Nebraska big game specialist, 112 coyotes were removed from a 170 square mile area in that state. This was done to study the effects of coyote control upon antelope fawn survival. Fawn survival success rates climbed to 62% inside the study zone, compared to 25% outside. In 1991,88 coyotes were taken from another study area comprised of 150 square odes, Fawn success rates reached 58% inside as compared with 35% outside the study zone.

WANT HUNTING SUCCESS? GO ELSEWHERE!

In September of this year I made a hunting trip to South Africa. Upon my return home, I recounted to my friends and family the enjoyment, excitement, and great hunting experience I had. After they left, I was relaxing and reminiscing about the hunt when a thought crossed my mind. "Why did I have to travel to Africa to hunt?" It wasn't the exotic animals, the excitement of travel, or hopes for adventure. It was the hunt itself. The love of hunting and being able to hunt hired me to a country half way round the world. Of course, like all hunters I wanted to be successful.
