Reaction from the state Capitol

Kathryn Bricker, a resident of Zephyr Cove, said the composition of the commission is inherently skewed to favor hunters and does not take wildlife advocates into account.

“The nine-member wildlife commission is (composed) of five ‘sportsmen’, two ‘rancher/farmers,’ one ‘citizen at large’ and one ‘conservationist,’” she said in a November interview. “It is no wonder the commission demonstrates such a narrow (viewpoint).”

Dunbar agreed.

“Because the viewpoints of wildlife management need to be considered from both a hunting and non-hunting perspective, the wildlife commission needs to be revamped,” she said.

Gibbons spokesman Daniel Burns said those opposed to the vote or how the commission is composed should speak with state legislators.

“The state statutes describe the selection process and spells out the type of people that are considered for the panel,” Burns said.

State Sen. Ben Kieckhefer, who represents Incline Village as part of District 4, said if residents have a problem with the makeup of the commission, that must be addressed at the policy level.

“I encourage residents interested in changing how the commission is formed to assemble their arguments and attend the Legislature,” he said. “As the representative for Incline Village, I am willing to sit down and hear their concerns.”

Nevada is home to an estimated 200 to 300 bears along the eastern Sierra, according to Nevada Department of Wildlife, with most in the Carson Range on Lake Tahoe’s East Shore. There also are an unknown number of bears in the Wassuk and Sweetwater ranges to the south.

Carl Lackey, a biologist with NDW who has worked for years with the state’s black bear population, pointed out, however, that bears do not recognize borders, and overall, the Sierra Nevada supports a population of 10,000-15,000 bears.

“The bear population in Nevada could easily withstand a limited hunt,” he said.
