Iowa DNR Turn In Poachers (TIP) Program

Iowa DNR: Turn In Poachers (TIP) Program

Put poachers out of business

Poachers are thieves who are stealing our fish and wildlife resources. You, as a concerned citizen, can take an active role in helping Iowa DNR put these fish and wildlife thieves out of business. If you witness or even hear of poaching activity call the TIP HOTLINE (1-800/532-2020) and report it immediately. Or, complete our confidential Online TIP Form.

The sooner you take action the better our chances are of catching the violators.
