Good hunting is no excuse for littering

HUNTING -- This is a note to the person who discovered a little public land quail honey-spot I've hunted for 30 years.

You apparently had a good day recently.  I don't really care how many birds you killed or missed, but I found at least six of the red 12-gauge 7 1/2-shot shell casings you left littering the sage brush on just a few acres of land.  I have no idea how many I didn't see.

I don't know who you are, but I have this vision of you being a pig.

Responsible hunters should clean up all of their litter, especially plastic shot shell hulls that will remain an eyesore in the field to give all hunters a black eye for decades.
