When I say trash, I mean that literally and figuratively. As in the trash all over and the trashy people who leave it there. I got here a little over 2 hrs ago, and on the walk in to my favored spot, I was disappointed to see cigarette wrappers, papers, balloons some d-bag apparently used to mark his spot, a discarded camo hat and even a plastic Academy bag full of more trash that someone just tossed in a hole.

I spent a good 30 minutes gathering it up and taking it back to my truck. I just couldn't bear to spend the next two days sitting amid someone else's crap. I don't expect that a THF member did this, but if so, let me know who you are and I'll tell you exactly where you can go to claim your $hit.

OK, rant over. I'll let you know if I actually shoot something.

H, I, for one, appreciate your rant! If more THF members would report on stuff like this, public lands would be better places to hunt. I only hunt public lands, so it really ticks me off to see 'em trashed. Thankfully, to be honest, I don't really see too much in the areas I frequent, at least when I get a few yards beyond the parking areas.

Good luck down there, check your six, and keep us posted!

There's really no need to report it as the bulk of it is right up at the highway at the forest road entrances. I guess the forest service doesn't have enough money to clean it up. As for trash in the forest itself, I, for years, carried a plastic bag in with me and picked up any trash I found. It's been collecting for decades and I learned that the areas I cleaned up stayed clean.

Oh, I didn't mean reporting it to authorities, necessarily, but on this and other forums.

The trash bag is a good idea, postoak...

Here's the garbage after I combined it all together. I'm hoping I'll be rewarded for my good deed. I don't believe in karma, but maybe the deer do smile .

Nothing else happening here so far.

It's a true shame that people can't pick up their own trash one of my favorite fishing holes would be covered in trash everytime I went I would clean it up in a few weeks do it over agian.
I went fishing with a freind and he saw me pick some trash out of the water and put it in the boat, he asked if it was my trash I said no he said in that case your welcome to come fishing with me agian

Well, I hope you kill something.

I'll never be able to wrap my head around that level of laziness and apathy.

My kids were misbehaving one day so I took em to some public land in n texas. I got a huge leaf bag trash bag and made em pick up empty shotgun shells for 2hrs. People leave their garbage everywhere. I try to help clean it up, try to teach my kids to be respectful, and if you dont, well dad's got some interesting forms of punishment for you.

What's baffling to me is, for the trash to get there, someone had to carry it in, right? And it would have been a lot heavier when it was a full beer can, beef jerky package, water bottle, shotgun shell, etc. So if they can carry that stuff in, why can't they carry it out when it's empty and lighter?

Thanks, but it was a complete shutout. At least I picked nice weather for sitting in the woods all day.

I agree people doing this stuff just don't care. I used to hunt some public land in Anderson county that had so much trash dumped on it (mostly beer cans and food wrappers) that it looked like a frat house just had a beer bash. I used to pick up quite a bite when I was there but it just got to a point where it was a losing battle.

Yep. It's a combination of both. Lazy and apathetic. Might as well add worthless to the mix.

Your time is coming. Keep on keepin' on.

Not sure what that'll accomplish, colt, but I guess they could put a face to the offender! I, of course, wouldn't hassle anybody about dumping trash in person since I have no idea how they'll react; Snickers wrappers and beer cans aren't worth getting shot over!
