Georgia DNR Law Enforcement Division is requesting help from the public to stop poaching and other illegal hunting activities this season by utilizing the Ranger Hotline.
“We are enlisting all the citizens of Georgia with the Ranger Hotline Program,” says GA DNR Law Enforcement Director Col. Eddie Henderson. “If you see a poacher or any illegal hunting activity in progress, call the hotline number or send an email and report it. You can remain anonymous and if your tip leads to an arrest, you get a cash reward for certain violations. It’s as simple as that.”
Poaching is essentially stealing wildlife that belongs to all citizens and taking away their recreational opportunities, like hunting, fishing or wildlife watching.
