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.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
