So true, so true, so true! Even here in last frontier, I have seen some very nice remote sites removed from public access due to the excessive trash left by slobs. The old washers, and propane bottles, and even vehicles all shot up and left to attract other garbage. And it does attract more! I am all for the paper only rules. It's been my experience that the smelly and slimy pumpkins spread all over the range will only attract flies.

I forgot to mention that fruit boxes with the slip off lids give two self supporting target mounts. All you need is a rock or even a scoop of dirt on the short side to make them stand up, and a staple gun to afix your target. Pick up easily for disposal at home.

Old tee shirts are always good. You can only use so many for painting. Hang them on an old hanger, or a cardboard piece, and then suspend them from whatever is there or you can fabricate. Also gives you a bit of reality at shooting at a torso.
