The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks toll-free hotline for reporting wildlife poaching, property damage, and violations of fish and game laws is in operation 24 hours a day.
TIP-MONT is the acronym for Turn in Poachers—Montana. Poaching includes:
- hunting out of season or at night using spotlights
- taking more than one’s legal limit
- nonresidents who purchase resident licenses
- professional and commercial poachers who illegally offer outfitter and guide services.
When it comes to poaching, Montanans are saying, “Enough is enough!”
If you witnesses a fish and game violation, or property vandalism, you can report the crime by calling 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668); or Report a Violation online at fwp.mt.gov, then click “Enforcement”.
Callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
