Our History

Operation Game Thief was started as a non-profit corporation in 1989 in an effort to provide a tip line for wildlife violations. The non-profit corporation was dissolved in 2001 and the remaining funds were given to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to pay rewards for tips leading to arrests. In 2010 interested Conservation Officers formed the Operation Game Thief Committee, which establishes current and future goals for the program. Our ultimate objective is to increase the amount of credible information received concerning wildlife violations. To date we have provided the public with the option of calling the Operation Game Thief hotline at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Headquarters during normal business hours or New Hampshire State Police Troop F on nights and weekends. We have also provided an on-line reporting system that is available by logging on to our website at, and we have created a Facebook page, new stickers, brochures, and posters.
