WSF    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nevada Bighorns Unlimited announced the donation of a Nevada Heritage California Bighorn Sheep Tag, to be auctioned at the 31st Annual NBU Fundraising Banquet on March 25, at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, Nev. "NBU is very excited to be able to bring this tag back to Nevada where it belongs thanks to the incredibly generous donation by a true Nevada sportsman and NBU supporter Jeremy Page,"

Nevada Bighorns Unlimited President Mike Bertoldi said. The Nevada Heritage California Bighorn Tag was awarded by the Nevada Wildlife Commission to the Wild Sheep Foundation's Midwest Chapter for their annual fundraising auction on March 5. According to Page, "I purchased the tag at the event with the intention of donating it to NBU. I believe that the California Bighorn Sheep is an invaluable asset to Nevada and the auction of the Heritage Tag should be in Nevada."

100 percent of the proceeds of the auction of the Nevada Heritage California Bighorn Sheep Tag will be donated to NBU. "We will dedicate all of the dollars from the Heritage Tag auction to Bighorn Sheep trap and transplant programs and water development projects throughout Nevada," said Bertoldi.

The Spokesman Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An Idaho Senate panel dropped a bill aimed at gutting the Department of Fish and Game's authority to regulate where hunters can drive their all-terrain vehicles. The Senate Resources and Environment Committee rejected the measure, while also shooting down legislation that would have forbid the Fish and Game from enforcing road closures on federal land.

The Mail Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber has no plans to intercede in a disagreement between state wildlife officials and animal conservation groups over whether Oregon's self-imposed, five-year mandatory review of wildlife management plans should be dropped permanently. Kitzhaber spokeswoman Christine Miles said Kitzhaber instead will leave the issue to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, which is scheduled to vote on whether to drop the five-year timetable for management plan reviews. It's a timetable the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife routinely violates. More

Montana lawmakers mocking our outdoor traditions
Billings Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Montana residents are avid hunters, fishers and ardent conservationists. Who sent these legislators to Helena to cheapen, trample and make a chicanery of our outdoor traditions? We've seen efforts to steal our hunting and fishing dollars, several attempts to disembowel the FWP Commission, limit FWP land purchases and their management, many attempts to statutorially manage wildlife, prohibit anything to do with our wild bison except slaughter and treat them as livestock, spear-hunting of big game, allowing silencers on rifles, weakening our stream access (Senate Bill 309) while allowing privatization of river channels, allowing domestic sheep to be trailed through bighorn sheep areas at will (House Bill 541) and the overturning of citizens Initiative 161.

Alaska needs to stand up to feds' predator-control meddling

Joe Vogler, founder of the Alaskan Independence Party, was a nagging pain in the federal government's side forever, what with his incessant rabble-rousing and court challenges and Alaska secession efforts. His was a fiery voice for confrontation. A Kansas farm boy with a law degree, Vogler — slain by a thief in 1993 — had no use for the feds or their imperious ways in his 20 or so years navigating Alaska politics. With the federal government owning and managing 65 percent of the state, it sometimes is easy to understand why. More
