    Good job on reporting this. Every little thing helps protect our resources.

    Everyone-

    Thanks for the kudos. Hopefully we can all do our part to prevent this kind of crap, even if it's only calling them out or reporting them.

    Since I read about this, I put the WDFW poaching hotline number in my cell phone contacts. I got to thinking I wouldn't know who to call. It is 800-477-6224. Thanks again Jarron.

    Wayne-

    Good point, I should have thought about putting that up earlier. I had to get that number off of my parking tag from fish and game. They should have it up on the regs sign at lenice, but they don't.

    When I called that number, it told me that if this was a poaching/environmental endagering issue ect, to hang up and call 911. So I did, and they took they info and I guess called the nearest fish and game officers who in turn called me back to verify info.

    That is a good thought though, to atleast have the number in your cell. One of the few reasons I carry a cell when fishing, there aren't many good ones.:)

    iagree
    iagree It's like general crime problems,and the judges have to quit being lenient.They're able to fine and suspend licenses and confiscate equipment, that should include everything but the clothes on their backs, vehicles especially. They should at least recover the cost of the damage the poachers have done and part of the cost , if not all the cost of the court and officers expenses. Jail time if neccesary in the county jail.

    Ya the poaching hotline is only available/useful during normal business hours mon-fri 8-5. Outside of those hours you have to contact the local state patrol office since the state patrol dispatches WDFW Officers. I have been told by many WDFW Officers they prefer you call WSP dispatch rather then the poaching hotline just because the WSP Dispatch is far more reliable...

    All WSP dispatch #'s are in the hunting and fishing regs
