Turn in Poachers fund pays record $24,200 in rewards

The Oregon Hunters Association’s Turn In Poachers reward program paid $24,200 to informants in poaching cases last year — a record amount in the program’s 32 years.

The rewards were paid in 50 separate fish and wildlife violation cases reported to Oregon State Police Offices throughout the state, including six in Douglas County, according to an Oregon Hunters Association report to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission Friday.
