Nevada Outdoor Democratic Caucus

An affiliate of the Nevada State Democratic Party


Who:  We are Nevada Democrats who support and speak out for citizen's rights in hunting, shooting, fishing, wildlife conservation, OHV, 4x4, ATV, motorcycles, hiking, camping, and all things to use, but never abuse, our great Nevada Outdoors. 

The NODC is affiliating now with County Chapters of the Nevada State Democratic Party.

What: Inform the public and influence Democratic lawmakers, candidates, and the political process.  We promote Democratic candidates and help Democrats succeed in Nevada for Nevada. 

From our bylaws:  Recognizing the great Western heritage and history of the State of Nevada, we, the Nevada Outdoor Democratic Caucus (the “NODC”), seek to maximize the participation of Sportsmen and women, and all Nevada Outdoor Land users in the Democratic party as a powerful force in determining elections at all levels of the political process set forth here to contribute fully to an inclusive and effective Nevada Democratic Party. We shall raise our voices on issues that directly affect Sportsmen and women, and the Outdoor community, and thus, pledge our efforts to the progress of our State.

Where:  All of Nevada!  The NODC has members in every Nevada County and works to support, educate, and cooperate with Democrats across our great State.  We talk with Lawmakers about Sportsmen, and talk with Sportsmen about Democrats.  

When:  Now is the right time to join the NODC.  The NODC was founded as an affiliate of the Nevada State Democratic Party in December of 2003.  When the State Party reduced affiliations to match the DNC in 2006 the NODC began the processes to affiliate with 17 County Democratic chapters.  Meetings are the responsibility of the local Chapters and a statewide meeting may be called at the discretion of the NODC Chair.  The NODC does not endorse in primary elections. 

Why:  Because Nevada Democrats respect citizen's rights, and Nevada voters deserve the truth.  In the past Nevada Democratic candidates campaigned against opponents who would routinely accuse them of being anti-guns, anti-hunting, and therefore, anti-sportsmen and women.  They might be accused of favoring locking away our public lands or banning some rights of citizenship.  These allegations are partisan attacks.  The NODC was formed to give voice to Nevada Democrats that strongly support our rights as sportsmen and women.  These Nevada Democrats value our Western heritage and traditions.

The NODC is not anti-wilderness.  Wilderness areas are a part of wildlife conservation and provide hunting and fishing to sportsmen and women who can pack in.  Wilderness areas provide Nevada outfitters and guides with important work in rural Nevada. 

Please check the Nevada Outfitters and Guide's Association page and visit their web sites to see some of the outstanding hunting, fishing, and outdoor opportunities in our state.  Plan a trip with a guide to our Nevada Outdoors!
