Is Poaching on the Rise?

ZONER Jim recently sent this comment:

This morning I went hunting on PRIVATE ground. I smelled something dead. I stayed on stand until 10:00 and then went to find the source of the odor. I found a doe that had been shot and never recovered. We have been having trouble with trespassing, this is the end result. I later found two dead does beside the road ¼-mile away, hindquarters cut off and the rest left for coyotes or whatever. People, this is why we are struggling to keep hunting alive. Trespassers, poachers and slob hunters are destroying the sport we love!

Is poaching up or down in your area? Have you found any mulilated deer like that? Let's discuss it.
