On several occasions, he has confronted people rattling and grunting - obviously hunting deer. Once contact was made, they all claimed to be hog hunting. GW was contacted each time.

If the poaching continues, the chances of us law abiding hunters being able to deer hunt these lands is slim. I'm fully aware of the bucks living on Corps lands and REALLY want to hunt them one day.
Taking hunters out of the woods isn't going to help. Less eyes in the field to report the poachers.
