Driving down to fill feeders, I noticed the road ditches full of Corn sacks. We always pickup every piece of paper and strings from our sacks and make sure they are secured in the truck. If you just throw the sack in the truckbed, it's almost a guarantee they will blow out going down the road.
Take a little extra time to secure your load so some local community member is not picking up your trash!

I agree it irritates me to see corn sacks along the road!

Hunters can be messy crowd, and the mass of laziness and lack of responsibility by some of my fellow hunters ticks me off.
Corn bags on the road is just part of it. A few times a year we see Hefty trash bags full of guts dumped on the side of the road in front of our place, you know that didn't "accidentally" fly out. Not to mention the increase in beer bottles during deer season, and full bags of lease trash that are too heavy to just fly out, they had to be thrown from a truck.
After 12 years of cleaning every piece of trash from 5000 acres, including the road frontage, I think it is safe to say that hunters are responsible for a large part of the mess.
We had a leaser that had a pile of beer bottles, cans, and misc trash from snacks outside of his deer blind. He was asked many times to clean it up. He finally left the lease and his trash.

Just another signal to the non-hunting majority who live in the country that deer season is almost here.

It was everyone responsibility to clean up around camp before leaving, whether only one or the whole crew showed up.
Trash got dumped off at home. Deer cleanings left at camp in the woods.
Irresponsible hunters tick me off, we are all adults not kids. Just BS to do trash like that. 2cents

IMO, another behavior that shows disrespect for landowners is unnecessary shooting. If you want to sling a lot of lead, do it at a practice range.

2nd all the above, witness too much of the above, no wonder land owners who partake in leasing land to TPWD, want to sell our public land, IDIOTS trash their property. witness too much of the above on public land.

This stuff sickens me as well. Starts at home. My boys know they pick up their shells and never leave a single piece of trash anywhere. Its automatic with our family.
Most of this comes from 4 wheelers and ATVers but its the same sickening ridiculous crap.

Those who don't take care of trash don't stay on our lease.

Trash is trash

Some of it's left where it doesn't belong, the rest of it left it there! realmad

Trash has no limits....be it hunters, campers, or fisherman. Corn sacks in the road, cans in the fire pit, or old fishing line & bait boxes floating in the water or left on the bank. 2cents

Recently looked at a property on the Guadalupe river in Kerrville. The lady who owned it says people always asked her if they could fish and she used to let them but she said the "fishermen" always left a bunch of trash laying around so she stopped.

I also see the corn sacks littering the road sides, and the rest areas we pass too/from the ranch are always stacked high with trash from hunters. I wish it were true that outdoorsmen were good clean living people, but its simply not true there are just as many slobs among us as anywhere else.

One time I was hunting Granger WMA and was running late to a date. I was pulled over doing nearly 100 mph. The officer questioned me about a game bag full of various beer cans. When I told him I picked them up as I was hunting he let me go and told me to slow it down..that was awesome. The woods are like a church. We would never litter our church. Especially when we know God is there.
