Hunting season is in full swing.
 
Albertans can now report poachers, dangerous wildlife or public land abuse using their smartphones or computers.
 
"Up until this point we were asking people to only phone the Report A Poacher line," said Brendan Cox, spokesperson for Alberta Fish and Wildlife. "People have been starting to use the website, I'm sure that we will see more and more users as time goes on."
 
The information entered is sent off the local fish and wildlife officers for followup and investigation.
 
People looking to use their smartphone, tablet or computer can fill out the form here.
 
Even with the new technology, problems can still be phoned in to the Report A Poacher hotline at 1 (800) 642-3800.
