Many of us have seen them. Many of us have suspitions about them. People are out there breaking the law when it comes to natural resources like fishing and hunting.
Many states have a hotline that you can call or text if you believe someone is violating fishing or hunting laws. Here in the state of Minnesota, we have the Turn In Poachers (TIP) hotline. This hotline is intended only for reporting violations and not a general DNR line.
Check out your state’s natural resource law enforcement website to see if there is a hotline you can use. Save it in your cell phone, so that the next time you see a violator, you can call them in.

My name is Brad Bolton, a husband and father of four. I live in Minnesota and I enjoy spending time in the outdoors and also spending time with my family. If there is water nearby, I want to fish it.
