The NC Wildlife Resources Commission has a new poaching enforcement program called TIP – Turn In Poachers. Poaching includes not only the illegal taking of game and fish, but also taking protected plants, trespassing, littering, theft and destruction of property. Depending on the severity of the violation, members who turn in poachers may receive a cash reward ($100-$1,000). You can turn in poachers 4 ways: the internet, a mobile app, text or phone.

For our Tennessee landowners, the TN Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) offers a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of wildlife poachers. Individuals with information about poachers or poaching activities can contact the TWRA by calling one of the regional offices from 7:00 am until 12:00 midnight, seven days a week.
