D.N.R. complaints

im sure there will be alot of them , in houghton lake during tip up town , there was open water where people have lost their lives , instead of putting up lighted barrels or barracades or even taking part in the mapping out of the bad areas , the d.n.r. did nothing but hand out tickets for people without trail permits who were riding on the lake the d.n.r. say that this is the law to have these on the lake . ok thats fine ,but then they should use some of that money to help out with patroling open water or mapping out the bad spots rather than hasseling the tourists who come up north . i could go on and on ...

Hmmmm,

I thought I read that you do not need a trail permit on a lake to go to and from your fishing location but it has to be registered.

Darn, I forgot my fishing pole......where did I park at again? POver here...nope, over there....nope.....Darn Guess I gotta keep lookin' :)

heres the mi law Snowmobiles are exempt from the Trail Permit Sticker if they are:

Operated exclusively on lands owned or under the control of the owner, used entirely in a safety education program conducted by a certified snowmobile safety instructor, exclusively operated in a special event of limited duration which is conducted according to a prearranged schedule under a permit from the governmental unit having proper jurisdiction or a snowmobile used solely for transportation on the frozen surface of public waters for the purpose of ice fishing.

Yes the DNR will trash tip up town. A rider in our group got a ticket for no trail permit. To top it off he was being an ass hole about it. They all but killed the lake racing up there so more and more people are not making the trip up for it anymore. If tip up town withers away the HT Lake comunity can thank the DNR for killing it. We had a cabin on that lake for 20 years and its worse every year. Too bad it used to be a great festival........

Now let me take a minute and explain to all what is going on. Some of the Michigan DNR Conservation Officers are participating in the "unethical" practice of issueing these petty tickets for a reason you folks havent even considered.
Did you know that riding without a trail permit is a misdemeanor under current law? Did you know that if you have a misdemeanor on your record you cannot get a Concealed Weapons Permit in this great state of ours? If you were a Conservation Officer and you didn't agree with the new law allowing people to carry handguns and you had the POWER to do something about it what would you do?
I just read an article in the Practical Sportsmen written by an Attorney who has PROOF that this is happening!
The attorney that wrote the article explained that most people will just pay these petty tickets and not even bother questioning their legimacy - and the Co's depend on this to "put a dent in the flood of new gun carriers"! SICK BUT TRUE!
I have said it a thousand times and will say it again - if you see that green truck in the area GO THE OTHER WAY! What's inside is not your friend!!!!
Oh, by the way, Jennifer Granholm is NOT on our side in this! We the people made a BIG mistake voting her in - she wants to give them (the DNR) MORE power, yikesssssssssssssssssssssss..
Ride anyway!
