NEW TIP NUMBER

Recommended Posts

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.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts
