He was a man of few words and lead more by example than words. He did not say anything about the people who left the occasional piece of garbage, and neither did I. Although no words were spoken, it had an impact on me as a kid that regardless of who threw it there or whether or whether not it was accidently dropped, it was all of our responsability to keep the woods clean.
Now, many years later, I still try to leave the woods a better place when I leave, than when I entered... This goes much farther than garbage too... I don't cut down shooting highways, I don't target practice on signs, or non-game animals... I simply apreciate the woods and its animals, and try to lead by example...
How about you?

My uncle Ed, who lived upstairs and was a hunter/fisherman, taught me about being a responsible person and a stewart of the outdoors. I remember the motto of leaving things cleaner than they were before you got there. I would think that we all are of that thinking.
How could you truly love the outdoors and then turn around and throw trash on the ground. Don't get me started on fisherman.
