Default Now just hold your horses

My supervisor at (let's call it) Acme Chemical enjoyed his quarter horses. Once while exiting the plant his vehicle was searched by one of our more conscientious security guards, know affectionately as Barney. When asked where the saddle in his truck bed came from, my boss replied with a grin, "off one of Acme's horses, of course."

With proper training the differences between a man & woman are microscopic at best. While you will always get a few bad apples, I think the Park does a great job of recruiting the best around. Sorry if I sound like a feminist

The rest of your post was hilarious. I remember asking a ranger right when I first started fishing if it was OK to use a yellowhammer. Without even thinking (although I doubt he knew what one was) he started quoting the line on every fishing sign in the Park about artificial lure single hook blah blah blah. So then I said it is an artificial lure single hook so I'm legal right. He nodded his head, made a frustrated face, and walked off

Default Poachers and illegal campers

Quote:
As far as the poachers I wonder if trout u, gsma or some other group like that could volunteer to help in some way in the park. I know they couldn't enforce regs but maybe they could take down peoples tag numbers or something.
It would be a good idea if everyone would write down license numbers, etc. and turn them in to the proper authorities. As long as people get away with illegal activities, they will continue to do them.

Rock dams: I got this off the NPS website regarding GSMNP-
Disturbing and moving rocks to form channels and rock dams is illegal in the park!
Moving rocks is harmful to both fish and aquatic insects that live in the streams. Many fish species that live in the park spawn between April and August. Some of these fish build their nests in small cavities under rocks and even guard the nest. When people move the rock, the nest is destroyed and the eggs and/or young fish die.
Aquatic insects need rocks for cover as well. Some aquatic insects can drift off or move when disturbed, but many species attach themselves to the rock and cannot move. When a rock is moved, aquatic insects fall, are crushed by the movement, or dry out and die when the rock is placed out of water.
One of the fundamental policies of the National Park Service is to preserve natural resources in an unaltered state. Consequently, it is against the law to move rocks in the stream. Please abide by these rules so that future generations may enjoy the park as well.

Interesting, huh? I was surprised to learn of this as when I fish my home waters, one of the first things is to check rocks to see what is under there.

This is my official notice to park officials. My son and I move rocks looking for salamanders quite often. In fact we did it yesterday.

Also I would like to report two 5 year old girls I saw this morning at cs 18 with one minnow bucket containing 3 salamanders and a crawdad. I am quite certain they moved rocks in order to capture those creatures and I didn't get their names but I can describe them and their parents to the rangers if requested.

I don't think moving rocks would be a big deal, but taking salamanders and crayfish is.

Doesn't seem equitable that you can drag a brookie from his home and eat him, but your not allowed to terrorize a salamander or two.
