This is the Utah Turn-in-a-Poacher hotline. It’s staffed 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Hotline operators will ask you detailed questions about what you saw.
These reports go to the same team that staffs our hotline. Be ready to provide details: GPS coordinates, vehicle descriptions, license plate numbers and other relevant information.
Poachers are thieves. They steal resources and opportunities that you pay to enjoy. And in many instances, poachers waste wildlife, removing heads or claws and then leaving the rest of the animal to rot.
If you’re an ethical hunter or angler, you care about wildlife and don’t want to see it stolen or wasted. In recent years, dozens of high-profile poaching cases have been cracked with the help of sportsmen who called our hotline. Some of them even earned rewards for their assistance. Do your part to protect Utah’s wildlife by reporting poachers immediately.
