NDOW Wildlife Commission Meeting - June 20-21
Thanks to all those who wrote emails, appeared in person or contacted
members of the Trapping Regulation Committee and the Board of Wildlife
Commissioners in support of responsible trapping as a management tool.
The outcome of the June 20-21 meeting is not final. More
discussion will take place at the Commission meeting in August.
- It was recommended that 6 demerits be assessed for conviction of late
visitation beyond 48 hours; 9 demerits for willful trespass on private
land for hunt-fish-trap. Hunting, fishing and trapping license
privileges are revoked when a person accumulates 12 demerit points
within a sixty month period.
- Area 192 was taken out of the north map (Douglas
County) and the south map was cut to the firearms congested
area of Las Vegas. Two calendar day check in those areas - not 48 hours.

- Instructed NDOW law enforcement to provide information
concerning treatment of individual traps and traplines for demerits.
Specific information concerning trap visitation was requested for
the Cold Creek subdivision on Mt. Charleston in Clark County.
- Trapper Education was also recommended.
This will be work-shopped at the August meeting in Fallon
and then voted on so it is not a done deal. Everything is still
very much on the table.
Furbearer seasons were set at the meeting. Bobcat
season was shortened and will run from Dec. 1 to Feb. 21 for the next
agenda and support material for the June 20-21 Commission Meeting
can be found on NDOW's website.
