Don't complain CALL TIP!!!
« on: Jul 23, 2012, 10:09 PM »
I tell ya, the tip line works. I've used it a few times before in similar situations with similar results.

When you see those who I refer to as the bucket brigade, help them learn the hard way. These game hogs will be paying over $1000 for restitution for sunfish and face and additional $3000 fine. That's enough to discourage the activity, I don't care who they are!

What Skipper said X2! Although I've never called the TIP line myself, 2 of my friend's have! It always give's me a nice warm feeling inside when they catch one of those S-O-B game hog's! Especially the one's that know better! You go CO's! :police:DIRTBALL2 ;)

Good for you guys. I've called in violations here in Indiana and didn't get a call back for three days. After two or three times of that I gave up. Granted it wasn't a TIP line per sei but I still called a DNR law enforcement headquarters.

TIP (Turn In Poachers) is a very effective thing here in MN. It often gets immediate attention from law enforcement.

We have fish here in MN because the poachers are scared!

I know of a guy who was shooting pheasants out of the cab of his combine while he harvested.... DNR took the combine.... we don't mess around! :D

I had to call in a guy who dumped a couple swans thinking they were snows, i didnt know him but, i watched it happen, so i ran over and hollered at him, said that he better call TIP-MONT cause i was going to! The warden called me back to tell me he had called to turn himself in, which was pretty cool i thought

If you can't tell the difference between a snow (small) and a swan (size of a small airplane), you best put the gun down till ya get your eyes checked! ;D

I honestly couldn't believe what I was seeing I heard shots and watched as a tundra soared to the ground so I started running down the canal to were he was, just as the flock fly right back over him and he dumps another, I ran over and he was all excited and I couldn't stop cussing at him that they're swans,  he tries to argue and I'm like, look at the length of their f***ing neck!!!

Some people are too stupid to hunt...

I am a firm believer that there should be a three strikes and you're out law. If you can't read the regs and learn what to shoot/catch/kill, and what to release/let walk/let go, you should spend your Sundays on the couch watching sports center.

And snow geese have black wingtips.... Swans have over double the neck and double the wingspan too. I've always looked up and said "cool, look at the swans!" Loooooooooooooong before they were in shooting range. My eyes ain't that great either.... Doufus deserves everything he gets. It's not that hard to google things.
