One thing I can't tolerate.............those who deliberately over shoot. Listen I have been at this for 31 seasons now, I have had down right horrible days and days when ducks where thick as flies on Dirt's Prom Date! LOL As a rule the crew at "Smoke on the Water" shoot a few and leave a few regardless of how good the spot is. Just makes sense-
Last weekend the guys from S.O.W, dropped in on one of our late season holes to find it has been getting alot of action......not a secret anymore I guess. This is what they found...................what a shame, careless and downright stupid- Here is a tip shooters....clean up your sh1777777!!!! That way people wont know where you have been killing, not to mention the image it leaves to the MRGCD!
Let's all police ourselves by trying to pack out what we packed in.
BTW the Receipt found in the pile has been turned over......should the law dogs care to follow up they can pin point exactly who purchased what, where and when! Another tip..........those shell boxes can also be traced to the store-person and time purchased. It worked to bust a bird dumping ring in Canada last year.
You all be the judge- study carefully!
Some certainly are more conscientious, some see it as status quo, and others never do get it. Looks to me as if some of those empty hulls may be leftovers' from a season or two. Did you have a look to see if any of those hulls might not be marked as containing Steel Shot? And did you make a pile of the crap for a photo or was it already there? Not that any such arrangement makes a difference because the crap was already in the immediate area, but hey, I’ve seen the same thing more times countable, and in recent season’s especially. It’s as if whoever did it was proudly marking a piece of territory they considered their own. To say these people are like dogs pissing on neighborhood fire hydrants and crapping in your front yards is an insult to dogs. These people are more like un-neutered domestic male cats let loose from home to travel around spraying their vile scent on whatever suits their fancy; everything from windshields of cars to kitchen windows, a favorite rocking chair or porch swing on the back deck, you name it.
Hell! I feel guilty to leave results of my own bowel movement and will bury it at least a foot deep in dirt or carry it out in a plastic bag along with any additional trash left by someone else. Might seem a bit extreme to some folks but not to me because my poop is mine, and I’m not going to leave it for someone else to step in or on. Empty shotgun hulls and even .22-rim fire brass are detrimental to livestock health once ingested; and they will do it. Cattle, for example, are well known to pick up and try to eat beer bottles. Most beer bottles nowadays are made of hard plastic resembling glass that is however anything but glass as most of us may think it to be. Same thing applies to shotgun hulls except the plastic, although much softer, has a similarly attractive scent. Sheep will ingest small brass cartridge cases just because they mow grass so close to the dirt.
Litter and waste are two things the top predator on our planet is most notorious of. It doesn’t matter where any of us are, where we have been, or where we may plan to go, but cleaning up and carrying away our own crap any place and every time certainly would make a huge difference.

So before you guys start saying anything find out some facts. We are more ethical than that. There are guys on here that really know me and would tell you guys that I'm more responible than that. Also keep me and team m.r.o. out of it. It is not us that are doing this. Thank you and have a good rest of the season. By the way decoying snow geese this weekend so if you guys find more stuff in that spot its not mine so that should tell you its not me or any of m.r.o.
