View Full Version : What tele #'s to call
What tele numbers should we call if we see the common problem of redneck defacement and overenjoyment of trout creel limits. I as many carry a car phone when I am up in the mountains. Rather than confrontation, a quick phone call would be even better. I know there are various offices scattered around north Ga, but what would be the quickest way to rat these jerks out to the nearest DNR enforcement officer. Thanks

They were on an eariler post on the board. I'm lazy so go do a search on it, man ! This is a GREAT board. My cell phone is always in my truck for just such an occasion, but let's not discriminate. There are tons of IGNORANT Asian, Black,White,Mexican,Italian,Cuban<...whatever. It's not just Red-Necks that have some bad apples.

I asked the same question of Ranger Bill regarding phone numbers. And as always Bill came through. He provided the following info on 01/02/99:
(quote)Richard, Jeff and Drifter,
I called for some numbers, that should help, and was told that rangers will respond to violations in progress.
The DNR Turn in Poachers Number (TIP) is:
1 800 241 4113 it is answered 24 hours a day.
You may get faster response during normal working hours by calling one of the following:
Gaineville DNR Law Enforcement (7 days/week 8:00am-5:00pm-not manned during lunch on the weekends):
770 535 5499
Forsyth County Sherrif's Dept (they will forward calls to DNR rangers)
770 781 2222
Gwinnett County Sherrif's Dept (they will forward calls to DNR rangers)
770 513 5100
Cobb County DNR Law Enforcement (7 days/week 8:00am to 4:30)pm):
770 769 9680
Cobb County Sherrif's Dept (they will forward calls to DNR rangers)
770 499 4600
I hear complaints about violation along the Chattahoochee, especially at the Richland Creek/Chattahoochee River area, all the time. I often give out phone numbers and advice. However, I rarely hear if or how problems are resolved. I would greatly appreciate anyone reporting in progress fishing violations on the Chattahoochee River to let me know if these numbers helped, how, and if the problem(s) was/were resolved.
Hope this helps,
The problem will only get worse if we don't do our part.
