No Nevada Love....................I live in Nevada but Hunt Idaho. For some strange reason I just like getting a tag every year. Nevada use to have some great later in the year deer hunts. Then NDOW decided that Money was more important than sound Game Management. Nevada is plaged with no rain and massive brush fires that have done long lasting damage to Deer winter Range. Plus Nevada is looking in the Face of Sage Grouse BLM land closures. That will wipe out a lot of area's to hunt if and when the Sage Grouse goes on the Federal Endangered list.
I use to hunt area 16 when the deer herds were massive and I could draw a tag everyyear. Plus Nevada refused to address the Predator issue. They did do a Predator Management program in Northern Washoe County and the Buck population went way up. To many liberals in Nevada Now ...................

Predator management is the only thing that will help the sage grouse also.

The first thing you need to understand about the Sage Grouse is that the Issue is not the Sage Grouse it is Land Control. Nevada Dept of Wildlife studies have shown a increase in Grouse populations its just that the end results that the Federal Dept Of Wildlife is after is land Closeures. They could care less about the Sage Grouse.

Absolutely correct, it's not about turtles, jaguar, smelt, lynx, caribou, wolves, or spotted owls. Just different excuses in different locales to take the public, out of public land.

Back to mule deer, rant over.
