I'm disappointed sometimes with the few slob shooters (I won't call them hunters) that leave all kinds of trash behind. They give the rest of us a terrible image with the general public. I usually try to pick up the empty beer cans I find in the marsh (does an empty, smashed can really weigh that much or take up that much space in your pocket?) and whatever else I can reasonably carry out with me. I think it was last year that some dumb arses thought it would be a good idea to build a blind with heavy mil plastic. It was an eyesore while hunting, visible from the highway, and did not last long during the first windstorm it encountered. Here's a big helpful hint. Use all natural material whenever possible!
My curiosity finally got the best of me last week and I hiked down to check it out. I will not mess with someone else's blind but this had not been used since soon after it was built and needed to go. I doubt someone on here built it. However, if you did, or know who did, shame on you or them for leaving a huge mess in the marsh. Its things like this that gets the authorities to finally give up and burn or tear down all blinds. I balled up the plastic and left it for my next trip when I could bring my sled and bit more energy for the long slog back to the truck with someone else's crap in tow.
Today was a struggle with the extra water in the marsh but I managed to drag it all the way back to my truck. It was a major PITA but I felt good for doing it. The marsh looks better without it.
It only takes a little effort on all of our parts to be good stewards of the resources we enjoy so much. I wonder how much the half dozen empty beer kegs that were used for some type of blind flotation and are now sitting on the ACWR are worth at the recycler?
