At the risk of sounding like a pansy-ass indoorsman, I think a good deal of the problem could probably be solved by providing the most heavily used slob hunter car camp sites with porta-pots during deer season. Sounds like the kind of thing the local DFG Fines Commission ought to be funding.

Go getem Boon. Here here. You see the same sort of carelessness at every turnout between Ragged Point and Garrapata, some consistently worse than others. You're getting your basic tourist for the most part, but that's no excuse. What is wrong with people?! Looking out over this million dollar view, saying "That's beautiful" and then literally $h!%%!ng on it. Que horible! Of course, those morons aren't reading this.

This sort of nasty carelessness always spikes during deer season, I've noticed. Apparently some - not all - deer hunters just don't have much of an outdoor ethic and refuse to accept even the minimum responsibility for keeping public lands enjoyable for everyone. My estimate is that 95% of this sort of filth can be attributed to those clowns who get out just once a year for the free meat and chance to fondle their guns, and spend the other 362 days in front of the TV set. The sheer volume of Charmin that they leave laying around is a sure sign of the pansy-ass indoorsman.

Thats a real shame. This kind of activity leads to the land agencies requiring entrance fees, permits, etc. One of the best parts about the Ventana Wilderness (and most National Forest Lands) is the ability to just park at a trailhead and take a hike. What can be done to stop careless, sloppy people?

Visits to the Willow Creek area in the last couple of weeks, specifically Sycamore Flat, Alder Camp and San Martin Top revealed fresh piles of used toilet paper and related fecal deposits behind just about every tree. What is it about Leave No Trace that these late summer forest visitors don’t understand? Or do they think that the Forest Service has nothing to do but run around and clean up their crap? Or maybe they just don’t think. Car campers using these sites should have room for a shovel and use it. Diapers would be another solution for this variety of forest visitor.
