Modern firearm garbage bag challenge!
« on: October 14, 2017, 09:27:43 AM »
Hi all!   First, a congrats and shout out to all the successful archery and muzzy hunter and all their friends and family who helped make it happen.
Second,  with all the comments and threads about sportsman like conduct and public perception,  I would humbly submit the following challenge to all my brothers and sisters of the woods:

Take yourself an extra garbage bag and fill it.  It could be that trash left in your camp when you arrive,  that water bottle in the trail four miles in,  or whatever other crap you may come across in your travels.  You did t pack it in,  but we, as the last hunt of the year, will pack it out.

Maybe even a photo of your bag with Hunting-Washington.com in the photo?    There is always gonna be "that guy(s)".  That leaves a shoddy camp to give all hunters a bad name to the Seattle tree-hugging crowd.  (See the Seattle times article on the poaching ring?)

So I humbly issue this challenge to all my fair chase, public land sportsmen brothers and sisters.   Once you have bagged your game,  bag that garbage!

See you in the Mountains!

If hunting was easy, they'd call it killing....

Never judge a man til you walk a mile in his shoes.  That way when you do judge him, you will have a mile head start and he will have no shoes.

Too bad not everyone has that attitude of leaving it 'just a little better than how you found it.' I've picked up cans with the old pull-tab top on them just off of trails before, wondering how many people have seen this trash and just kept going?
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

One of the places I like to go and 'hunt with the camera' after seasons are closed, had the PVC pipes and dump valves torn off from an RV in one of the bad sections of road. I threw it in the back of my truck and on the way out got stopped by a warden checking to see why I was in that area. When he looked in the back of the pickup he said, "you must have been back on such-and-such road judging from that pipe." I guess I'm a bit slow, but as I drove on out of there I actually got mad when I realized he had obviously driven right by that pipe mess multiple times without bothering to pick it up.

What an outstanding idea!  :tup:

Making sure I have a few bags in my truck later in the week.  Avoiding the crowds this weekend.

they don't do anything but what's expected of them.  I Pick up trash in the woods all the time. It's one of the first things my dad taught me. Pack it in pack it out! Drives me nuts people that have no respect for what they have until it's gone! Great thread!

We pick up trash all summer scouting and during season. We call it mountain karma. It works we shot two bulls during archery season.stop if ya see a can or bottle on the side of the road ya never know what grabbing that trash may lead you too. A fresh track or rub. Thanks to the OP for posting this as well.

I have never taken a beer into the woods but have brought countless empty cans/bottles out.  Seems to get worse every year though.

Always do. Picked up literally Jeep loads of garbage this year, some with my daughter, some with Cab. Incidentally, if you pick it up on state land, your regional WDFW office may let you dump there or the local sheriff might, as well. If picking up in the NF, the local ranger/info center may let you dump there. We've had great luck with these requests.

Had my best haul of the year yesterday. 2 tvs and microwave each with a bullet hole in them.

I should be able to pack out close to 100 lbs of trash on a day thru hike next week if the Weather is good. Going to hit hunting camps in the wilderness
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it

Drew a tag for the 342-364 units? PM me if you want Info
