You will be in a world of hurt if you have glass in your possession anywhere near the streams of the Elk River basin within the boundaries of McDonald county.

At $100 per violation, you only thought that 12-pack of Heineken was expensive at the store. Just wait until you’re handed a $1200 ticket!

    we where trying to have fun on the elk…never been there before. never heard of the glass bottle thing and there were definitely no obvious signs anywhere pointing out HOW illegal they are on the river. to make a long story short after being witness to about 1000 fat redneck, sexist, racist [Moderated: Expletive] for the 3 hour duration of the trip, we were attacked by two dnr agents at the end of the ride. badge number 88(Huuuuuuugggggeeeee [Moderated: Expletive]) and badge number 230(almost as big yet a smaller [Moderated: Expletive]) pulled up next to us and our 3 glass bottle’s(luckily the rest of our beer was in cans), threatened to mace us, arrest us, said “you do not have the right to free speech”, cuffed my friend and gave us 3 tickets with a court date! God i love the summer of freedom. anybody smell deliverence? just to note we were picking up other peoples trash as we went along because we care….it was a really horrible experience that we paid Two Sons rafting or whatever for.

      We are sorry you did not have a good experience on the Elk. Unfortunately, we cannot control what other people do on the river, nor what the state or county law enforcement may do. Come out Sunday-Friday and you will likely have a much better experience.
