Has anybody 'up north' been having trouble with caches being muggled?

We have a 4-stage multi out in northern Oconto County which has been hit repeatedly. All four stages are well hidden, off the beaten path, and are unlikely to be accidentally found. And yet, each has been vandalized or outright stolen. Might this be somebody with a GPS and coordinates? I certainly hope not, but I am beginning to wonder.

The National Forest has raised their parking fees to $5.00 per day. It is very irritating for cache hunters to pay to park, and then not find the cache. It's also getting costly for us to keep going in for maintenance...

Hopefully this is an isolated incident, and not somebody targetting our multi.

None that we are aware of way up north in Vilas County. We did have one not placed back on it's hook but we fixed it.

Well, our Jones Springs Multi Cache is disabled now. The new first stage lasted only a couple of weeks. A GeoCacher found it this past weekend, and reported everything inside soaked, and holes poked in the plastic container. The log book and other papers were placed packed in baggies, apparently no longer are, so somebody went to some effort to vandalize it.

The Forest Service would not do this - they'd grab the whole thing, haul it off to HQ, and contact somebody if they did not like it being there. But I've checked and there are no restrictions.

I recently read of another cache not far from this one which had a bag of feces left inside the ammo box. I guess there are some misfits in northern Oconto County who don't like GeoCaching...

Not sure yet what we'll do. Probably at least some of this multi will be pulled out, maybe one or two legs will be converted to individual caches. But they'll get pulled too if this continues.

Is northern Oconto County part of the NE or NCentral WI forum? I thought I knew where to look, but couldn't find that info when I last checked...
