Celebrity outdoorsman Jim Shockey and his daughter, Eva, are well-known for their hunting adventure television shows. But these days, you will find their images on billboards all over Idaho reminding folks to call the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline to report wildlife crime.
Idaho’s Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is a nonprofit corporation with a board made up of interested hunters and anglers from around the state serving as regional directors. The idea is to provide an easy way for hunters, anglers and other citizens to report a wildlife crime by calling the toll free number (800-632-5999).
Currently, officers are issuing about 170 citations a year prompted by 700-800 calls a year. But Fish and Game believes it could be much more. And so do Jim and Eva Shockey. That is why they volunteered their time and images for these billboards and to create this video promotion to remind citizens that we all need to protect Idaho’s wildlife.
