No more trash man for me!

Recommended Posts

Guest

(FACT) - The #1 reason landowners shut down access to hunters and fisherman is littering and general disrespect for private and public property.

This season we have all witnessed more trash and waist on our lakes and rivers then ever before.

Has anyone seen a single violation issued? Not I.

Responsible sportsman and sportswoman pack it in and pack it out when they leave.

We pick it up; they toss it out again the next day. When you can pick up a 30-gal trash bag one-day and then return the next day and do the same, you have become the garbage man for the irresponsible and uncaring.

No more trash man for me, report all litter's, document the events, turn them in, press charges, make it stick, that is the new plan for me. Cameras, and camcorders are a handy tool, use them well. I will go to court to see them change their ways! Try me once and see.

Courts need to issue mandatory trash pick up sentences and a healthy fine after they do so. No more pay the fine and leave, pick up trash or sit in jail until you pick up your fair share of trash.

They will learn, or at least think twice, before they litter our woods & waters again. If they repeat, guess what, twice the pick time or jail, or both. I see this as the only way to change their individual habits.

Slobs beware, we will be watching, and we will no longer pick up your trash for you.

The tips line number is on ever license issued, use it or call the local police and INSIST on action.

If we don't we will see more and more loss of hunting and fishing access rights.

The outdoors we once hunted and fished will then be a trash dump for the irresponsible and the uncaring.

It is our choice.

I understand your frustration. However, it is not only the lakes (or hunters & anglers). In my part of rural Central Minnesota all you have to do is drive a few miles of secondary roads and you will see just about every kind of discard tossed into the ditches -- including motor blocks, dishwashers, truck tires, refridgerators, and the usual smaller dump (cans, bottles, etc.).

My wife and I used to walk our road and fill plastic garbage bags with as much junk as we would carry. I'm done.

We're looking at a contemporary sickness about which local and state governments seem not to care.

You know that thing your mother always told you, "If you can't say anything nice . . ." ?

Well, you really don't want to know what I think of polluters. But . . . it's almost as difficult for me to understand people who consciously pitch garbage out the window or leave dump behind on the ice than it is for me to comprehend certain politicians and hard criminals.

It makes me sick to see those scatterings of beer cans (typically the same people guilty of wanton waste of game and fish, I fear) around outlines of now removed fish houses. I guess I've always been naiive in the fact that I thought all sportsmen were my kind of people.

I and too many others cherish the envirions in which fish & game live way too much to not take action on this one. It's just a no-brainer.

the problem in my area started when cities started charging 2 or 3 different charges for garbage removal. i dont agree with people littering but the over charging seems to contribute to it. I spend alot of time out in the woods and nothing is worse than walking down an old loggig road and finding someone unwanted trash in MY woods.

I live in the country, and garbage is a normal sight everywhere. I really hate when people goes to McDonalds, then dumps bag of garbage out of the windows, or empty beer cases right on road, so if they get pulled over they won't have any problem.
I spent 10 minutes trying to dislodge a buried gas bottle from Shields lake, but ice was too thick and I didn't have anything to dig. I agree 100 % with problem regarding fees, especially considering landfill charges us SALES TAX of 17%. It still bugs me I have to pay sales tax on garbage, what is it a regular commodity ?? Then above it there is the 17% !!! Why not 6.5% like everything else???

Anyway, I think the problem is in people's mind more than fees. We should do something, if our government ends the "child's fight" they are carrying on lately, maybe we can wake up some politician, it's just a matter taking the pacifier out of their mouth wink.gif

I agree 100%. Everyone should pick up their trash and do their part.


However, talking until we are blue in the face may not do any good, at least on this HSOforum, as I believe all members that post here are respectable sportsman and DO THEIR PART already. I believe all my friends here have the common sense and the respect for natural habitiat to take their trash with them and be responsible. That's why everyone on this site I consider a friend.

I am happy to hear you have the energy and will to take action Eddy. I am sure everyone here appreciates your tenasity and will to help keep the wildlife wild.

Keep up the good work everyone.

Happy Fishing.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
