With the upcoming Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners (Commission) meeting set for February 6-7 in Reno, Nevada's County Advisory Boards to Manage Wildlife (CABMW) will be meeting over the next two weeks to gather public input and make recommendations to the Commission on several important issues including the big game season dates for the 2009 - 2010 season.

The CABMWs job is to gather information and opinions from area sportsmen, then advise the NBWC about how to manage wildlife and recommend seasons and limits for their counties. These recommendations are carefully considered by NDOW biologists and the NBWC as they make the final decisions. One of the key items to be reviewed will be the Big Game Season regulations for the next two years.

The following CABMWs have meetings scheduled on these dates:

  • * Carson City, February 2, 6 p.m. in the City Hall Capitol Conference Room.
  • * Churchill County, Feb. 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the County Administration Office, Room #102.
  • * Douglas County, Feb. 3 at 5:30 p.m., CVIC Hall, Minden
  • * Eureka County, Feb. 2 at 6:00 p.m. at the County Administrative Building.
  • * Lander County, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Lander County Courthouse.
  • * Lincoln County, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. at the Panaca Fire Hall.
  • * Lyon County, Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. at the Silver Springs Community Center.
