Default Hogs /Hawgs! Everywhere!!!!! A Hunter's Lament!

I've lived here on and off for 15 years, moving down from Pensylvania (2X).
This is my first year hunting here although I've been hunting since 1958.....Yep, I'm old.
As you turn north from Rte. 98 onto Rte 87, about 2 miles, you'll start seeing signs of hogs / hawgs everywhere... You can start following the signs...Mc Donalds bags, cups, etc. everywhere! As you turn left heading West on Choctaw Road, pick any of the (FWD) sand roads / trails and you will find discarded trash every 40-50 ft.! Cans, bottles, trash everywhere!
Apparently we have a strange species of hogs/ hawgs living around here that are weathly enough to own big FWD trucks, able to eat on-the-go, throwing their garbage out the window, everywhere..... Unfortunately, this trash will not disolve, it will just pile up!
If I'M TALKING TO YOU..... YOU ought to be ashamed of yourself! Isn't there room in your big, bad-ass truck to haul your own garbage away?
I've walked 3-5 miles this week on these FWD roads hunting, but I got sick and depressed over what I've seen...Is this the "new" American Sportsman?

NOTE: Years ago in (PA.),there was a lot of open and private land used by all the sportsmen and snowmobilers. Today, much of it is closed because the owners got tired of picking up all the trash left behind....Think about it!

You know as I was hunting this week I noticed a unusual amount of trash in the woods and thought... this is RIDICULOUS!!!

Sorry individuals knowingly leave trash in the woods and water!

Yeah it's pretty sickening, I've been noticing it a lot more as well on land and in the water.

It is a shame. We ride ATV at a park in Lower Alabama. I always have the polaris Ranger bed full of crap I pick up while riding or winching out of a hole. People in general are getting worse and worse. I throw an apple core or banana peel out of the window. But what really gets me is the 10,000 stinky cancerdick butts at the redlights!!!!

I sure don't understand it. It's not that hard to put trash in its place.
I fear that some people will never be educated.
I remember several years ago the PNJ did a story on slobs in the woods and on the water. They interviewed a game warden and he said that one time he came up on a white beach on one of the streams north of Milton. Some idiot had pulled his truck up on it and changed his oil right there. There was a big oil puddle (or what remained of one) and a discarded oil filter. Now how do you change the ways of a moron like that?
