I've never actually caught anyone "in the act", but I've recovered several good deer stands, an automated deer feeder and even some parts of what looked like a whiskey still once!

Fortunately, things have gotten better out there since a neighbor up the road (an utterly insane but honest redneck), asked us if his three sons could hunt the property a few years back. We obliged and since then his "boys" have pretty much acted as enforcers and have kept the riff-raff and poachers at bay when we're not around.
Dude, you took my best deer blind!
