Great topic to bring up---I'm surprised more public lands aren't closed off due to shooters littering. Every time I go out and shoot, I always load up several items of trash left behind by other shooters. Please keep public lands clean, or it gives those that don't shoot a reason to stir-up legislation to keep shooting off of public lands.
