From Arlington, Washington, Pat teaches stewardship by example.  As a mentor to his grandson, he demonstrates respect for the shooting sports, builds value to a young mans' life and makes a regular contribution to our great outdoors.  We need more Pats' on our public lands!  Thank you Sir!

Pic1 "I take my grandson shooting almost every weekend from spring until the snow comes and we can't make it back in to the woods to go shooting. Part of the weekly trips is picking up the old shotgun hulls, steel rifle & pistol cased, and brass cases and any aluminum cans left by other shooters.

The shotgun hulls go to the trsnsfer station garbage pit. The steel rifle & pistol cases get dumped in the metal recycle container at the transfer station The brass cased we keep, we seperate them by caliber, clean them up to reuse. The ones that are damaged go in to a bucket to take to a metal recyling yard. My grandson is getting 90 cents a pound for them. We save our aluminum soda & beer cans for my grandson to crush with a Harbor Freight can crusher and take them and any aluminum cans we find at the shooting pit. He gets 25 cents a pound for aluminum.

Pic 2Any regular garbage I add it to.our house garbage and run it to the transfer station when we go get rid of our personal garbage.

I have two of the magnets with the straight handle shaped like a toilet plunger. You pull.the metal lever up on the handle and it moves the magnet up and the steel cased & shothun hulls fall off in to the buckets.

I reload so I load up a couple hundred handgun cartridged and a hundred or so rifle catridges every week for my grandson to shoot and I clean up the pit. He becomes a better shot, i do my part to keep the pit open It's a win/win situation.

Our hats' off to you and your grandson, Pat!

 

JS Klamath

Jack spent the better part of his morning, removing a bullet riddled fibreglas pickup canopy, dozens of melted aluminum cans, empty 12 ga. hulls and 5 bags of trash and junk from the banks of the Klamath River near Keno.

"It never ceases to amaze and aggravate me on how any human being can be so disrespecting of the beauty that has been provided us. They managed to get this stuff in there, can it be that difficult to take it with them when they leave? Again, I chose today to visit my father's memorial there, in hopes there would be no one there and thankfully that was the case. My anger began to subside as we finished the job and that particular area and a hundred yards of shoreline are once again rather pristine. I will continue to smile until my next visit."

Bob tells the story of his recent trip to the Yacolt Burn Forest...

Buddy and I were up at Arrowhead Pit this morning about 9:30. Five others there shooting, so I talked to them. Two left a short time later, the other three by 11:30. We did some shooting, picking up trash, eating snacks, yakking about the way it was when we grew up, some more shooting, some more cleaning up.

Somebody had already been bagging trash, but it hadn't been hauled away. Unfortunately, a visitor thought one of those trash bags would make a good target: we collected up the contents and drug it back to the road side. Our contribution was two more big trash bags of small stuff, and other miscellaneous items that wouldn't fit in bags [wood, large chunks of plastic, fuel canisters, etc].
