Every hunting season, some individuals knowingly or unwittingly violate the state’s game laws. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials urge hunters take the time to review Montana's hunting rules and regulations, and to report any violations they observe taking place.
A violation afield can be reported to TIP-MONT on 1-800-TIP-MONT, 1-800-847-6668.
Some of the most common game reports include:
- failure to obtain permission from landowners before hunting on private property,
- wasting any part of a game animal suitable for food,
- discharge of a firearm from a public road.
Hunters and others can call 1-800-TIP-MONT to report witnessed or suspected property vandalism, trespass or wildlife violations, violations in Montana State Parks, and on USFS, BLM and other lands. Callers may be eligible for cash rewards and they can ask to remain anonymous.
