Unfortunately, wildlife officers can't be everywhere at once. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission relies on outdoors enthusiasts to report violations when they see them and help conserve our natural resources for future generations. The Enforcement Radio Room is available 24 hours a day to handle all calls from concerned citizens.
Three options are now available in Arkansas to help catch trout poachers. One is to immediately report what you see by calling the Stop Poaching Hotline, 1-800-482-9262. Caller’s names are kept anonymous and if you wish you do not have to leave your name.
AT&T cell phone users may dial #847 and leave a tip as well. Cell phone charges apply. Volition tip can also be texted to TIP411 (847411). TIP411 removes all identifying information from a text before the AGFC receives it, so tips are completely anonymous unless senders want to identify themselves to claim rewards. To send the anonymous tip via text message, text “AGFC” followed by the tip to tip411 (847411). You will receive a thank you text acknowledging that your tip has been received. Each tipster is eligible for a monetary reward based on the amount of the minimum fine in the event a citation is issued for the violation being reported.
