Another Bad Bill

NDOW sponsored Senate Bill 135 which now makes it a felony instead of a gross misdemeanor for killing a big game animal without a tag.

NDOW Director Sells Out Deer and Employees

The truth has now been exposed. For years, Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) has used many excuses for their mismanagement of our deer herds. In 1988, there were 250,000 deer in Nevada. Today, NDOW’s estimates are 107,000 and that number is in actuality probably a lot lower. The excuses that NDOW has used for the past thirteen years are drought, wildfire, bad winter, juniper pinion pine and cheat grass. Of course, NDOW never mentioned predators or other mismanagement for the decline.

Action Item #3 would prohibit hunting for a 96 hour period after using aircraft to locate wildlife.

This request by NDOW has to be the most overkill idea they have come up with in a long time. The hierarchy of NDOW must have a lot of time on their hands. In Alaska you cannot hunt on the same day that you fly. It is probably safe to say that 95% of the hunters in Alaska must utilize aircraft. What percentage of Nevada hunters utilize aircraft'1 Probably a tenth of one percent. Alaska, which has a hell of a lot more game to protect says no same-day hunting. So Nevada wants no hunting for four days. This is a pure and simple law enforcement mentality. NDOW does not know how or refuses to bring back our big game numbers. All they know is more law enforcement. We already have 140 ways to cite sportsmen and apparently it is not enough law 1enforcement for NDOW. This is like gun Control. We have thousands of gun laws and they want more.

TIME FOR A CHANGE

 It just hasn't worked and we need to return to a Department of Fish and Game. During the 1993 legislative session, former Governor Bob Miller consolidated state agencies. This has proven disastrous to the sportsmen in the state of Nevada. Since consolidation, Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW) has been one of nine state agencies put under the umbrella of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Its director is Pete Morros. There is not a single person who can do the job efficiently for nine state agencies. And Pete Morros has proven this many times over.

If HUNTER'S ALERT has a failing, it is that we occasionally don't get our newsletter out in a timely manner. There is a reason for this. Every day HUNTER'S ALERT is doing something for the hunters.

NDOW SELLS OUT DEER FOR LIONS

Sportsmen realize that we have too many lions and because of this our deer numbers have remained low for years. So what did NDOW propose for the 1999 seasons? They wanted a whopping increase of 69% (3,780) more does killed. In addition, they requested 22% (70) fewer lion tags to be allotted. Please note, this is not a misprint. The reason for these numbers? Get ready, sit down and hold on to your chair. The reason: In 1992 they overestimated, repeat—overestimated how many deer we have. Let's see, they overestimated one year so seven years later, they increase doe tags by 69%! Would someone with some common sense explain this reasoning process?

Miller was NOT a good steward to wildlife

In the last two weeks, many Nevada newspapers have run articles about the accomplishments of Governor Bob Miller. In the fairness of good journalism, the other side of the story should be told. Bob Miller demonstrated for ten years that he was no friend of Nevada sportsmen.

What did you do for hunting last year? Did you take a child hunting? That's a good deed because the children of today will carry on hunting in the future. Maybe you supported one of the many organizations which promote a species of game bird or animal. For the most part they are organizations who want to do good things for a particular game bird or animal However good these activities are, they are not enough to overcome the antihunting groups or bring back our game numbers.

Politics Picks New NDOW Administrator

Not one sportsmen's organization in the state endorsed Terry Crawforth to replace Willie Molini as administrator of the Nevada Division of Wildlife (NDOW). Even the Wildlife commissioners rated him third in a three horse race. How did he get chosen? It was good old politics at its worst.
