NEW TIP NUMBER

2 posts in this topic

From the turn in poachers website:

Cell phone companies Cingular Wireless, Midwest Wireless, Unicel, and Verison Wireless have joined forces with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Minnesota's Turn in Poachers, Inc. In calling a halt to natural resource violations in Minnesota.

Verison Wireless, Unicell, Midwest Wireless, and Cingular Wireless customers can now report violations to natural resources 24 hours a day by dialing #TIP.

#TIP is the wildlife version of 911 and a great example of the public and private sectors using the latest technology to provide information to conservation officers about a natural resource violation "said Minnesota Chief Conservation Officer, Colonel Mike Hamm. "Conservation Officer need the eyes and ears of every outdoor enthusiast to help detect violations and protect our natural resources."

For example, if a man hunting in remote Northeast Minnesota witnesses a deer poaching incident he can use his cellular telephone, dial #TIP and immediately be in touch with Turn In Poachers (TIP) At the same time a woman fishing on the Mississippi River sees a fishing violation. She picks up her cellular phone and dial #TIP as did the man in Northeast Minnesota. TIP then relays the message to a conservation officer.

The current TIP Hot line Number, 1-800-652-9093, is still accessible by cell or land line callers who want to report natural resource violations, however, cell callers now have the easy advantage of a easy to remember shortcut in #TIP.

I hope this has not been on here before. I learned about this at Game Fair this year and wanted to share it with the FM family.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
