Standing room only!!!

Look at the trappers. Man, I'd hate to be an anti in that crowd.

I understand the trapping committee voted 3-2 to keep the rural areas at a 96 hour trap check. Hope we can keep the momentum going in Clark and Washoe counties.

3 anti's. lots of trappers, Nevada cattlemen and Nevada woolgrowers, guides, hunters. Went real well. lots of good info. The 2 votes tried to get the committee to wait til Reno or Vegas to hold this vote. Didn't happen. A lot of momentum there. Sullivan did great.

Hello all,

We smoked em. Four of us drove up from Ely. Like Rocky said, Elko County commissionaire, president of the Nevada Cattlemen's Association, head of the Nevada Houndsmen, Nevada wool growers representative, Several from the Nevada guides and outfitters association and too many trappers too mention. Amazing how important private trapping is to many groups here in Nevada. Everyone handled themselves professionally except for the two antis. The one made several lies about our friends in Clark County. Please keep in mind that this is just the beginning of several meetings, we are now are at half time and this still needs to go before the full commission. We also need to keep Vegas and Reno in our thoughts and efforts. We can not let them take an inch. They talked about compromise last night but their agenda is clear. Once they start chipping away they will not stop. Let's all try to get out to the next couple of meetings and help our comrades in Reno and Vegas. I will pledge to load my van with trappers from White Pine County to go to Vegas and attend the next meeting! I most conclude with what a fine job our Nevada Trapper's Association president, Joel Blakeslee and Vice President John Sullivan did representing us, my hats off to them for their tireless efforts! Also to Randal and his crew from Elko, what a turn out! The meeting is in Reno today and let's fill that one up too and don't forget the one in Vegas, I don't have the date but I'm sure someone will post the details for the Reno and Vegas meetings.

Just a thanks to all who attended the meeting! Except the anti's! Like Joe said it very important to keep them back on there heals now and then push them over the edge!! Be professional if you get to speak and have a game plan. Stick to the points at hand and don't ramble like the anti's do! Thanks to our team on the board and all the hard work they have done and more to come!!!

A good point made in Elko for the populated areas was, 24 hrs or 96 hours won't make 'any' difference on dogs getting caught. If a dog got caught in a trap the owner would have it out before the trapper showed up anyway. Not a feral dog, but they are talking pets in these areas. Not brought up but could be is, is the trap would be registered in case authorities wanted to talk to the trapper.

I don't understand why two or the board members voted yes after saying the 24hr check might not make any difference and it might make things worse. It was like they just voted yes to do something to shut antis up a little, even though they did not want to. 24hr check will do nothing about a dog being caught or not caught. I just don't see the point.

It's totally political, there are members of the Legislature working them from behind the scenes as vigorously as we are working them from the front.

The reason we are in total opposition is because the strategy is a death by a thousand cuts.

Go to facebook and like the Southern Nevada Coalition for wildlife. That is where the politics get played from our people. Trappers aren't numerous enough to do it alone, we need Coalitions.

I'm on the board of the northern coalition and one of the co founders. It's been in existence for 21 years now and frankly is the reason we have it as good as we do.

I worked as a lobbyist for both groups this past Legislature along with our association and a zoo organization.

Facebook is the best way to get stuff "from" us. Like the NV trappers association and S. Coalition pages and you will be notified. Go to NV TA website if you don't have facebook.
