Fellow Sportsmen and Outdoor Enthusiasts,
As I read through this issue of the FallWildlife Almanac, I started to notice an importantreoccurring theme. From the story on wildlife
viewing, the big game forecast or shing on Lake
Mead, the Nevada Department of Wildlife website(www.ndow.org) offersthe public an incrediblylarge and comprehensiveamount of information andmaterials to help themwith nearly any questionor situation in the outdoor world.
Take shing in Nevada
for example. Anglers in
this state can check onup-to-date shing reportsand stocking informationbroken down by region. Angler Information
Guides detail the top 79 waters in the state, and
the How to Fish in Nevada book explains the ins
and outs of angling the Silver State. Where to
sh, how to sh, sh identication…if you have aquestion about shing in Nevada, there is a good
chance the answer is on the NDOW website.Hunters in the state are just as fortunate. Thewebsite has nearly everything a sportsmen needsto ensure a successful hunt. Hunter information
sheets detail specic hunts by species and
region. These information sheets tellyou about herd movement as well as
nding camping or gas stations in the
area. NDOW’s mapping section covers
everything from hunt unit maps to BLM
maps to an interactive mapping programthat allows you to build your own map
with your own specications. Application
information, hunt statistics and draw odds,and bonus point tables allow sportsmento put themselves in the best positionpossible for the big game tag draw. The
key to a successful hunt is preparation and
