NEW TIP NUMBER

Recommended Posts

snowgoose

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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
