The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is turning up the heat on illegal poaching in the state.

DWR officials say they have issued more than nine-hundred citations since August 1st after 102 big game animals were illegally killed during that timeframe.

DWR officials say tips to the Turn-in-a-Poacher hotline have been a big help.

They're asking hunters to be on the lookout for more potential poachers as hunting seasons continue.
