Callers to the Citizens Against Poaching hotline will hear a human voice during evenings and weekends through December 10.
The hotline will be manned Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings and all day on weekends. Callers to 1-800-632-5999 can report wildlife law violations anonymously, if they wish. Rewards for tips leading to convictions are paid whether the caller is anonymous or not. Funding for the reward program comes from voluntary contributions to CAP.
During most of the year, a recording is heard by off-hours callers, but during the hunting seasons, calls tend to increase sharply.
Citizens who wish to report a wildlife violation are encouraged to note as complete a description as possible of people and vehicles involved as well as time and location of the incident. The more information Fish and Game enforcement personnel have, the more likely a poacher will go to court.
