Stream access is a growing problem in our state. It is difficult to get access in many areas, both lakes and streams. This is your chance to weigh in on this subject. Don't let inaction allow this opportunity get away.

 

AB 396, a bill to ensure access for recreation on lakes and streams in Nevada, is slated for a hearing in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee on March 28th at 12:30 pm. We need a good turnout of anglers and paddlers to demonstrate to the committee that we need to ensure public access to our waters.

 

Two things we need from everyone:

 

1. Forward this information to your contacts and help spread the word about the hearing.

 

2. Let us know as soon as you can about any issues that you or someone you know has had with access to waters in Nevada. 

 

 

One more thing.....if you can't make it, you can e-mail the committee to register your support at

Important Anti Bear Hunt meeting this Thursday, March 7th 1:30pm Grant Sawyer Bldg 555 E Washington Room 4412E

                                                                        Anti Bear Hunt

 

 

March 2, 2013

 

Sportsmen:

 

            There probably will be a hearing on the Anti Bear Hunt Bill SB82 this Thursday in the Senate Natural Resource Committee. This bill is particularly dangerous in that it strips the Wildlife Commission of its right to have a hunting season on bears.  This precedent could be used for any other species in the future. The antis claim it is only bear hunting that they wish to stop, but almost in the same breath make disparaging remarks about hunting in general.

 

            We are asking sportsmen to write, call, or e-mail the Senators on the Natural Resource Committee.  Your correspondence must not only state your opposition to this SB82, but also state why. Typical reasons are:

 

  1. Nevada’s bear population is an increasing renewable natural resource that in no way is impacted by hunting.
  2. Existing seasons and quotas are based upon the best available science developed largely by NDOW biologist Carl Lackey who is recognized as a leading expert by bear biologists across the west.
  3. This legislation flies in the face of existing statute which prohibits the Commission from closing a game season without scientific justification.
  4. The bear harvest from hunting is inconsequential compared to the numbers killed by autos and public conflict.
  5. We need to continue to manage wildlife based on science, not emotion, as dictated by Nevada Statute.

 

            Your correspondence must be polite and professional.  If you choose to testify, dress up; suit and tie is preferable. Testimony by women and children is particularly effective.
