With many hunting seasons about to begin, the Idaho Fish and Game reminds people who spend time outdoors that they should reach for a phone whenever they witness a violation of fish and game laws.
Callers to the Citizens Against Poaching hotline, 1-800-632-5999, can report wildlife law violations anonymously, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“Many sportsmen help us solve cases regardless of the reward,” said Assistant Enforcement Bureau Chief Chris Wright. “But it is a good added incentive for some people.”
Rewards are $200 for birds, fish and general violations.
The amount climbs to $300 for most big game animals and wild turkey, and $600 for trophy species such as sheep, goat, grizzly, moose and caribou. In special circumstances, these amounts can be higher.
