Last year as we floated past the end of the Daily section, the Apache rangers were waiting for a group that had not paid the permit fees. They said they were going to confiscate all boats and equipment and that it was their legal right to do so. When we asked what happened then, they said they would impound the stuff and the people could petition to get it back later. They also said they would not even give the people a ride out of the canyon.
So go ahead, "poach that shit."
