That includes hunters shooting animals but not retrieving them, shooting after dark or any activity that seems suspicious.

“We need your help,” the division's Capt. Mitch Lane said in a statement. “While you’re enjoying time in the outdoors this fall and winter, please be observant. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, please let us know.”

Those who witness a possible hunting violation or something suspicious are urged contact the division's Utah Turn-in-a-Poacher hotline by calling 1-800-662-DEER (3337). The hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
