Catch a Poacher 24-Hour hotline

Poaching deprives the public of the opportunity to use and enjoy Maryland’s natural resources. Preserving our natural resources for present and future enjoyment is everyone’s responsibility.

Citizens who use the poaching hotline to supply Maryland Natural Resources Police with information leading to the arrest and conviction of a poacher will be eligible to receive cash rewards.

Please provide names, addresses,
vehicle and boat descriptions and as much additional information as you can.

Your anonymity is guaranteed.
