OGT offers rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals who violate the state's game and fish laws. Since its inception in 1981, calls to the OGT Reward Hotline have resulted in more than $1,180,000 in assessed fines, and rewards totaling over $220,000 paid to the concerned, responsible citizens who made those calls.
