    Bury it, and last weekend I step in someone's who chose not to. I was at Chitina and nothing makes a guy happier than stepping 1 foot off the ATV trail (formerly a road) and stepping it someone's crap. Someone left a surface laid mine for me.

    Bury it. Just in case I'm the next one to walk through.

    I would like to thank everyone who has the decency to bury their poop.

    A few years ago they were lokking for a lost hunter up this one river and the chopper pilot landed next to us to see if we had any info.

    We did'nt but we got to talking about where the moose were ( grins ) and he would't say anything other than you'ed better be ready to do some packing, lol.

    He did say that the rivers edge looked like a bunch of bunnys, all the toilet paper left behind from the rafters.

    We were up there in a boat overnight and saw 4 rafters with nothing and the next morning at 7:00 am shot a 61" right across the river from the tent, lol some pretty pissed off rafters as we passed them on the way down. ( lying chopper piliot too, lol )

    The point that I was trying to make is that , you might not see it but others will.

    Bury your s--t people, it dos'nt take that much of your time.

    I probably crap in the woods more than most since my work is always outside. I dont bury but I always burn the paper. A man taking a poop in the great outdoors is no different than a dog. Just use some discretion on where you go. I guess if your going to go next to a trail or river bank....you better bury it. I cant believe I am having this discussion.

    i like to play with my poop first. I usually make chess pieces out of them so me and my partner can have something to do when we are weathered in our tent....

    It depends, on who's campsite (nah just kidding)

    There have been a couple times where it was virtually impossible to bury the sht. On my annual Yukon River trips, the mosquitoes are so bad that the second yah drop trousers and crouch down........you better hope ur not constipated and that it goes well n quick because even for a mere 1 minute trip.........I'd have what felt like a dozen mosquito bites all over the entire "exposed area"

    Bushrat has a hillarious story about a guy who used to live out in the bush and had a good remedy for this type of unfortunate phenomenon.

    Johnny, I knew you were losing it but I had no idea it was this bad. Have you purchased a poo reconstitutor yet?

    Did this poll start because of the "garbage" thread?

    On a well travelled route, for instance the Kesugi Ridge which I did in '09, yes, I did carry a small trowel and go WAY off the route. But in the middle of nowhere? No. Why bother. I do burn the paper. But I'm talking about places nobody else is likely to see for a long time. I used to work in the bush staking claims and doing mining surveys, etc.

    what a crappy question.

    a pole on 'do you bury other peoples poo?' now that would be something.

    AND, what kind of thought process leads one to put the two words "pole and poo" so close together?? does that sound like someone you want to go with alone into the wilderness?

    I have found a warm TP fire is quite a nice way to start a morning in the woods! As far as covering the load I frequently do if something is handy for the job and always when out with the dog!!

    I take my cue from the bears. I insert a brush plug prior to going afield and leave a very large deposit at a dump station after I get back to civilization. It helps that I love to eat cheese.


    Nah, I dont bury unless I have no choice but to do my duty close to an area someone else may visit...and even then i typically will pill rocks on it since I dont normally carry a digging implement.

    I do burn my TP 100% of the time. Somehow the thought of leaving paper litter in the wilderness doesnt set well.

    This year's first wildfire was started by some genius hikers who thought it would be environmentally responsible to burn their fully biodegradable toilet paper on top of Wickersham Dome. Took a whole crew of smokejumpers to put out what could have been tucked under a blueberry bush or tuft of moss..
