Okay, I will agree with that somewhat but is it just coincidence that it seems like a majority of the places where it literally looks like a dump is also the locations where shooters typically gather?
I'm not even accusing a single person on here, you may all be perfect saints and pickup every single shell you've ever ejected. I'm just asking if it's a socially acceptable practice cause from someone like me that's an outsider to your hobby, it looks like complete crap and the common sense part of me doesn't understand how it's acceptable! I've NEVER gone shooting in the deserts at all around here. Never, not a single time. Only places I've ever shot around here are at the boulder city range and I've been to American Shooters once. That's why I'm asking, is it normal cause if so, that's friggen messed up and someone needs to start putting the word out that it's not acceptable.
BTW, I'm willing to bet just about every single person here when out camping, at the end of the weekend when you're picking up the camp... I bet every single person here picks up all their trash and any other trash laying in their camp whether it was theirs to begin with or not. So if others are dumping, why aren't others picking it up when cleaning up after themselves? It just seems like shooting is the only hobby that happens in rural areas where litter is accepted. (point out another if I'm wrong cause I can't think of another where the staging area in the middle of the desert is typically trashed) Again, that's purely from an ignorant outsider's point of view and that's why I'm asking. I'm also asking cause people are talking about it after the mint this weekend and about how insanely trashed one single particular part of a 94 mile race loop was. Enough so that you can look on google earth and see the trash.
