Hook and Hunting: You Can Now Text Into DNR To Report Poaching

Reporting poaching activity in Northern Michigan may have just gotten easier.

People are now able to text into the Michigan DNR if they see poaching.

In past years, calling 1-800-292-7800 was the only way to report illegal activity.

The number is still the same and can still be used to call into

But Michigan DNR feels texting in might be easier for fishers and hunters out in the woods.

“Everyone texts so we’re just offering another capability for people to contact us and sometimes you’re on a stream next to somebody who’s breaking a rule or regulation or you’re in the woods. It’s easier for you to text or do something that’s more quiet,” says Lt. Brandon Kieft, Roscommon DNR.

DNR poaching report number: 1-800-292-7800.
