Prevent tip ups from being run over

After drilling holes, fill up a 5 gallon bucket with snow and slush, flip bucket over like your making a sand castle and remove bucket next to Your hole, Let that freeze up nice and hard. sit back and don't worry about your tip up. nicest thing if for some reason it still does get ran over I guarantee the person who did it wont make it very far, kindley walk over and ask for 40bucks to replace tip up making sure not to step on any of there busted sled parts.

Ive had guys park and ask how im doing and before they leave i say look out for the tipup 10 feet in front of you... ran over... nothing works because most of these people are drunk and brain dead... You can put out a barricade with flashing lights and your tipups still won't be safe!

or just don't put them 50 plus yards away from you. I have always had better luck with them close rather than a mile away. Closer they are to me jigging the better. I don't mark mine and never had one run over. Even in the middle of shanty town.

I agree that it's probably not a good idea but I've had a tip up run over that was clearly marked by a piece of PVC pipe with alternating glow and orange pieces of tape on it in broad daylight. The moron on the snowmobile said that he was curious why there was a piece of PVC pipe with alternating pieces of glow and orange tape standing out on the lake so he drove over to check it out. I can honestly say that I wished I had a 5 gallon sized chunk of ice next to my tip up at that time but this guy was apparently so stupid that he probably still wouldn't have figured it out.

I agree with bad idea. Seems like a lot of work when what I really want to do is fish. I just use mini construction cones (All different colors). They have reflective tape. Stack on top of each other so don't take up too much room.
