Abstract

Maine has only 95 game wardens for an area almost as large as the rest of New England, and each year, poachers kill almost as many animals and fish as are taken legally by hunters and fishermen. About 30,000 deer are poached annually, and wardens stake out darkened woods with deer decoys and execute armed raids to catch lawbreakers. Putting food on the table is the least common motive for poaching. The author follows wardens Dave Craven and Joe McBrine as they pursue their difficult and sometimes dangerous job in Washington County.

Subjects
