Someone’s Stealing Georgia’s Wildlife

  • Poaching is the illegal fishing and hunting of wildlife.
  • Poachers rob you of hunting opportunities.
  • Poachers steal everyone’s wildlife.
  • Poachers give ethical anglers and hunters a bad name.
  • Rewards are paid if an arrest is made.
  • Anonymity is respected.
