How exactly do yo know it was hunters.
Lots of people like to target shoot.
Just asking ,don't get too worked up.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Happy Easter.       Hunters, target shooters, whoever pick up your shells, hard enough on this side to find places to shoot , we will lose privileges .

In December, I went to shoot a couple of shells thru my new shotgun, drove up finn settlement road, been a long time, no place to shoot, the place by the pilchuck campground posted no shooting by state, houses are too close.  I continue looking at ONXS for state land, all the land I found posted by State, too close.   Real hard to find spots to shoot, sign of the times

Looking at the picture- those are mostly non-toxic shells in the 3" or greater range. He is implying he found them in a hunting area along a waterway. I will go with hunters garbage as well. Target shooters do not usually use non toxic 3" shells.
Either way- pick up your crap if you are out using public lands is a good message.

Why bother. Most places are a dump already. Olympia is forking out some of my tax money to beautify the slums. Let them pick up my trash. Take that guvna!

Donít be a slob
Pick up your own crap
Roads and highways are a freakin pig sty already
Donít need more
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.


What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?

Been doing the right thing for decades. Because of it, I've been sued, lost my shot at the US ski team, and carry a load of shrapnel along with the dark secrets that came with it. In it for me now.

Looking at the picture, it's not much of a pile and likely multiple users. 
While I try to pick up my hulls, I won't stop a hunt to search them out.  Who here finds all of their shells? 
That little pile hardly warrants the finger shaking admonition.

That pile of shells was only half of what i pictured, and the area of land they were on is 300 yards long and 20 yards wide.

I do. I find all my shells before leaving an area. Not really that hard.

OU or SXS makes it much easier to pick up brass, plus, you don't tend to waste the first shell to 'make them fly faster'.

When duck hunting, some places are really hard to find all your shells.  That said, you can almost always easily find other people shells and have more coming out than you went in with.

The two pass shooting spots on Fir always have lots of empties laying around in front and on the back side of the dike.  Have watched lots of folks burn through boxes of shells shooting at geese that are way to high.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!
