    Are you a snitch?

    If you see or hear of game violations such as baiting, trespassing, night hunting, using other peoples tags, guns during archery season, ect., do you look the other way, or do you make the call. I have always minded my own business, but no more.
    Not sure how bad it is everywhere, but where I hunt this kind of crap is rampant, and I'm just sick to death of being at a distinct disadvantage because I follow the rules. It pains me to be a snitch, but it pains me more to hear about deer being taken blatantly outside the rules.

    there are regulations/laws put in place for a reason. It's for the safety of not only the people hunting but also for bystanders and the animals as well. Let's use an example shall we, that would be like putting a beautiful woman at a bar seeing how many guys/gals hit on this "beautiful" woman and then following them around and beating them up after. everyone here i hope follows all the reg's and rules that are implemented by each and every state. I'm a police officer and i expect someone to come up to me and tell me that if they saw something that was wrong or out of place. Remember if you SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING!!!.

    Anyone breaking a game law is stealing from law abiding hunters, it is not snitching.

    i mind my own business until it impacts me personally. i cant relate with your mention of baiting and that taking deer from you. if that is happening to me, if so i am not aware. where i do draw the line on getting law enforcement involved is when things get stolen. the game warden where i hunt now has a key to my place and is hoping to catch the guy that has been stealing from us and a couple clubs around us. i have called the sheriff once due to people spotlighting in urban areas. i wouldnt classify myself as a snitch but when public safety is of concern..i'll do my part and i think you would too bud.

    It goes beyond baiting any intentional violation is taking from those that follow the laws.

    I haven't yet but I would if need be. it's important for us to help out the C.O.'s cause there are so few of them. Call the T.I.P. line and remain anonymous.

    Depends on the law being broken. Trespassing on someone else's land it is up to the landowner to call the police.(DNR doesn't have authority to enforce trespassing in Wisconsin.) If I have permission on the same land then I will let the landowner know and hopefully he takes action. Otherwise I have high standards and ethics when it comes to the outdoors. I will call!

    I call, but always find it interesting when you call out a violation on an internet forum and are called a bunny cop wannabe....You would think forums dealing with the outdoors would support the law abider......But they don't always

    I probably wouldn't bother. my neighbor called on a road hunter that she physically seen shoot a deer and called. she even went to court to testify and it went nowhere. all it did was waste her time. i don't put a lot of faith in our judicial system and law enforcement in my area. if someone is screwing with me in the woods and i know who they are it will be returned ten fold.

    If somebody is breaking the law it's our "duty", within reason, to advise the authorities. There are waaaay too many folks who "don't want to get involved" and that's what keeps the scumbags being scumbags!! Get involved.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem!
    Nobody wants to be "that guy", but at the end of the day, it could be your land being trespassed on, your stands being stolen, or your neighbor causing the spread of CWD! I have respect for DNR officers and Wardens dealing with difficult individuals every day.
    We can help them by providing as much assistance and information as possible. As mentioned in this thread already, these folks are stealing from law abiding citizens. He/she doesn't have to be your neighbor for him/her to steal from you! Less game in one region, will displace those hunters and cause them to go hunt/fish elsewhere and then it may very well become your problem. Fish & wildlife violations have a way of trickling down and becoming everyone's problem sooner or later. Nip it in the bud when you can!
