On Bowsite they claim that crossbows are the weapon of choice. Quiet and good out to a 100 yards.
According to convictions for poaching (all states) a bow (any bow) is single digit weapon percentage. Guns are the weapon of choice.
I dont have the report that I am remembering but I am confident some time on google could locate that.

A little common sense would also reveal why a bow isnt a great weapon for poaching. You are involved in an illegal activity. The idea is to get it done quick. Shooting a deer and then tracking it in the dark for an unknown time/distance makes no sense. The head/high shoulder shot that drops the animal on the spot is the preferred method for quick getaway.

When I was a kid there were 3 poachers that used to bring deer to the slaughter house 5 minutes from where I lived year round and they were all taken with small caliber rifles
My uncles used to load subsonic rounds for moose.
