I have not started a thread in a long time, so I hate for my first in a while to be about a negative subject. So I hope the posting can have a positive impact for the areas aesthetics. I hunted in 13 twice this year with my family, once early on a fly in with my daughter then again along the denali highway near the McClaren with son and wife. This is an extremely game rich area in this state by todays standards, and a beautiful area to see. There is clearly a percentage of hunters who deem it appropriate to leave their trash behind. During the fly in hunt my daughter and I found a moose/caribou camp that had been successful last year that was left a sty with propane bottles, fuel cans, and plastic. This was a very remote area to access with wheelers and could not have been an easy trip. If you take it in on wheelers it must go out. I packed the trash several miles and flew it out on the plane with us. Trip number two along the Denali showed my son and wife the edge of pullouts blanketed in toilet paper and crap. Then after a long wheeler ride to a knob to glass, more toilet paper and crap with pop cans(cans removed). Next knob cans left on top of bushes as targets, my son enjoyed shooting at them but we took them and the shell casings with us. My wife shot a caribou 1/2 mile off the highway and there were several other kills nearby two of which I picked up trash at, lots of trash. The pullout we camped in was left with trash in the fire ring and a cows head in the middle of where we parked. Cat holes are not that hard to dig along those pullouts and the paper could be burned or taken with you if necessary. I have seen this type of thing in every area and in every type of hunting, but not to the extreme that I have seen it along roads and wheeler accessable country. These two trips into 13 were the worst I have witnessed and it reflects on all of us. I know there will be people read this that accept this type of behavior because there are clearly quite a few of them out there.
If it's you clean up after yourselves and leave the area as pristine as possible for the next group
At 8 yrs old my son has spent as much time picking up after others as he has learning to butcher an animal and he does not get how people could treat ours and their state this way.
