I know you can report violations currently in progress by calling Operation Game Thief, but what about recorded violations? If one were to stumble upon a video of a wildlife crime, is there a way that you could forward it to the proper authorities? Thanks and tight lines!

I have a snippet of the video here for those curious, but of course to TPWD I'd send the full thing.

Call TP&W and tell them what you have. They will want names, location, and dates

there is a game warden in Austin who's job is watch for violations such as this. Contact them..If you someone post a pic and they have done something illegal they might get a visit form the GW.

Yeah that's [censored]!! GW needs to know about this. I know they address and issue citations for violations they see on social media a lot. They'd love to about this one.


You get out of it what you put into it!

This offense can be filed up to two years after it occurred. By all means, offer it to TPWD and they will assess whether it is a viable case.

Good to know! I've already sent it to the proper authorities. Turns out you can call Operation Game Thief for violations in progress as well as violations after the fact.
