  • Here’s a TIP: Fight poaching by using hotline

    INDIANAPOLIS – Licensed, ethical hunters know the rules and play by them, but poachers don’t.

    Hunting season increases the likelihood that law-abiding hunters will encounter poaching, which is the illegal taking of fish, game or non-game wildlife.
    When that happens, DNR law enforcement urges hunters to use the TIP hotline to file a complaint. TIP is an acronym for Turn in a Poacher or Polluter. Firearms season for deer runs Nov. 12-27. 
    Anyone can use the TIP hotline but hunters are more likely to witness violations.
