How naive am I about it?
I've come to believe one of the wma's I hunt is heavily poached. Maybe both. Romp and stomps. I think it's so easy, and more commonly accepted, than I once believed. I've talked to complete strangers, on the streets, casually boasting about shooting whenever and whatever they want.
How common do you think this on WMAs? That a public land heavily hurt by poaching. In four years, at places I rarely go a week or two without visiting, I've seen law enforcement only once. I know law enforcement is spread thin. But I wonder if this knowledge contributes to widespread poaching that can decimate certain properties.
Can anything be done to mitigate it??
