In the recent "Having deer scored and put into the record books" thread found under Ohio bowhunting, several people brought up the point that it is our job as sportsmen/women to prevent poaching. I do agree with this statement but to be honest, feel hopeless in assisting the CO's in fighting the ongoing battle. My one and only experience was ruled off as nothing more than heresay as I couldn't provide any specifics and in fact had only heard it "thru the grapevine". This left me feeling a little bitter and embarrassed by wasting the time of an already overworked CO. Without giving specifics I'd like to hear as much as ya'll feel comfortable sharing when it comes to your experiences with reporting violations be it good or bad. When all is said and done if one of us learns something that could possible assist with putting a small dent into what we all consider a HUGE problem then this thread will be a success.
