A joint investigation between game wardens with the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) and investigators with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has resulted in the conviction of a 22-year-old Utah man.
Brayden Norton, of Washington, Utah was initially arrested in May of 2019 after an investigation determined he illegally shot a mule deer near Caliente, Nevada in November of 2016. Norton removed the antlers and left the rest of the deer at the spot where he shot it. 
  • Burning and soil quality
    Why do farmers burn their fields? 
    Burning is one way to dispose of the straw left after harvest so fields can be made ready for seeding of the next crop. 
    Farmers and ranchers commonly use burning as a tool to invigorate vegetative production of pastures and rangeland. 
    The practice of burning is not a new idea but started many generations ago with the burning of grasslands. Burning is an inexpensive, labor efficient means of removing unwanted crop residues prior to tillage or seedbed preparation. 
    If completed correctly, burning can be an effective management tool.
