Call it youth, call it inexperience, or call it something less kind but Wildlife Commissioner Jelindo Tiberti showed why he should not have been re-appointed to the Wildlife Commission. At the January Wildlife Commission meeting Tiberti challenged HUNTER'S ALERT to prove that Nevada Division of Wildlife had purchased $25,000 worth of books from Defenders of Wildlife, a proven antihunting organization. The majority of sportsmen in attendance wanted something done about the mountain lion in our state. But Commissioner Tiberti chose not to represent them and instead to try to find fault with the HUNTER'S ALERT newsletter.

You would have thought Commissioner Tiberti would have learned his lesson since HUNTER'S ALERT subsequently J issued a challenge to him. If HUNTER'S ALERT could not prove the expenditure was made, then Mr. Tiberti could buy a table at our banquet. Mr. Tiberti failed to respond knowing fully well he shot himself in the boot and could not back it up.

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?

TIME FOR A STRUCTURE CHANGE

Who is responsible for the dismal game situation in our state? The Division of Wildlife and the Wildlife Commission want you to believe that mother nature is at fault in the forms of drought, bad winters, wildfires, and lightning. This is simply not true. NDOW failing to control predators and inexperienced people appointed to the Wildlife Commission who will not listen to county advisory boards or the public is a much more realistic answer.

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.

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.

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.

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.
