Ranger Hotline

Ranger Hotline Logo

A poacher is a thief who steals wildlife that belongs to you and all other Georgians.  Poachers rob you of recreational opportunities that you pay for through hunting and fishing license fees.  You can be paid for turning in a poacher!  If your TIP leads to an arrest, arrangements will be made for you to receive reward money even if you wish to remain anonymous.  If you see or learn of a violation, try to write down: a description of the violator; a description of their vehicle; the location of the violation; and the type of violation.

Call the Ranger Hotline at 1-800-241-4113 (or *DNR for AT&T Mobility Customers) seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Contact your local Game Warden to report a poacher in your county.

Send an email directly to Ranger Hotline to report poachers and polluters.

  • Please provide a contact number so the Game Warden can contact you if more information is needed.
  • Please provide the county in which the violation occurred in.
  • All information is strictly confidential, and you can remain anonymous.

The Ranger Hotline program is part of the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation, whose mission is to protect wildlife by increasing public support for wildlife law enforcement.  Contributions to the Ranger Hotline program are greatly needed and appreciated.
