OutdoorMN News - Turn in Poachers names Duncan its conservation officer of the year

Recommended Posts

Rick

Turn in Poachers has named Kipp Duncan, a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer who patrols the Duluth area, as its 2017 Joe Alexander Conservation Officer of the Year. Duncan also won the award in 2010. 

-3-300x217.

As in previous years, Duncan was among many officers qualified to receive the award, said Dennis Mackedanz, executive director of TIP. The award, named in honor of former conservation officer and DNR Commissioner Joe Alexander, is presented each year to an officer who best represents the TIP mission during the course of duty.

“Kipp exemplifies the strength of the DNR/TIP partnership by his history of being engaged with the program,” said Mackedanz, noting Duncan has been part of TIP committees, promotes the partnership through education, and generates cases based on TIP calls.

Duncan said he’s humbled to receive the award a second time and notes the TIP program gives citizens an opportunity – anonymously if they choose – to help their local conservation officer.

“Our natural resources benefit and poachers have a higher likelihood of being caught because of the TIP organization,” Duncan said. “A high percentage of the cases I am a part of that involve intentional poaching originate from TIP calls. Without that TIP call, many cheaters would not be held accountable and our natural resources would suffer.”

TIP is a nonprofit organization that cooperates with DNR Enforcement Division to encourage the public to report natural resource violations. TIP provides rewards to people who provide information that lead to arrests of game and fish law violators. The TIP line is 800-652-9093, or #TIP for most cell phone users.

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
