Don't see how most people don't know about it when it's right there on the wall when they check in.
The problem I've had with it is twice now I've noted a commercial group claiming Whiskey on the board, then not taking it.
This makes it difficult to know if Doe / Wildcat are now more likely to be taken.
Also keep the hikers out of river campsites like Whiskey Creek and the Ranch.
I've had some good experiences with hikers on the Rogue and they usually are aware the riverside camps are for boaters.
In May we got to Upper Tacoma and there was a single tent pitced up on the hill.
Group consensus was the occupant was welcome to share our camp if he pleased.
