Whitetails Unlimited Adds to Whitetail Watch Program to Fight Poaching
Whitetail Poaching Program – New boundary sign, wallet card and decal added to longstanding program.
To help curb the crime of poaching on a national level, Whitetails Unlimited now has available an anti-poaching sign that is suitable for use anywhere in the country. The sign encourages anyone who sees suspicious activity to report it to the proper law enforcement agency.
The new Whitetail Watch boundary signs, wallet cards and decals do not list a specific state or phone number, but are visible reminders to poachers that people in the area will report suspicious activity. The longstanding WTU Whitetail Watch program already has property boundary signs, stickers, and wallet cards, with specific contact information for tip lines in nine states (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin).
“It’s the responsibility of every ethical hunter to help fight poaching,” said WTU Executive Director Pete Gerl. “It’s as simple as being aware of what is happening around you, and reporting any suspicious activity to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Poachers steal from all of us, damage our natural resources and cast a bad light on all hunters. Wardens and law enforcement can’t be everywhere, and they need the help of all hunters to catch those who think laws and regulations don’t apply to them.”
The Whitetail Watch program works as a type of neighborhood watch for the outdoors, with signs and stickers letting violators know someone is watching, and can help prevent violations from occurring. A thin wallet card lets individuals report suspected violations directly to state law enforcement via a specific toll-free phone number.
All Whitetail Watch boundary signs, wallet cards and decals are available at no charge, in small quantities, by contacting WTU national headquarters at (920) 743-6777. Larger quantities are available at a very reasonable cost.
