POACHERS OF THE BAY
Help To Stop Poachers!!
If you spot poaching, please place a call to the Maryland Catch a Poacher Hotline at:
A cash reward is available for
information leading to an arrest and conviction of a violator.
(more info here: http://www.dnr.state.md.us/huntersguide/poacher.asp)
The chapter has some business-sized cards that carry the
two toll-free phone numbers for reporting poachers in Maryland 24 hours a
day. Be sure to pick up a card at the monthly meetings or your nearby
tackle shop to carry in your wallet. Both numbers now ring in the same
room for the MD Department of Natural Resources Police. Remember, there
may not be an immediate response to your call, but it is logged. Patrols
are based in part upon reports of poaching activity in a given area. When
the reports start accumulating, then more patrols and better response
times might be expected.
The DNR Police number is 800-635-6124 and the State Parks number is 800-825-7275.
