    Re-Burying Trash

    Someone I know who recently began the hobby simply has an aversion to wearing a treasure/trash bag, claim his coat pockets are ok. I know for a fact that trash has been tossed in public view, and discussed the bad example and the danger of a kid picking up trash and possibly putting it in his mouth. That got a positive reply/promise to not toss trash, but is isn't logical to me that trash isn't simply being re-buried. I don't know it happens for sure.

    Should it be my business to police such actions? Is it worth the possible conflict?

    I think that, as a fellow dirt fisherman i am obligated to try to keep the hobby in a good light to others that do not partake of the hobby. I would have spoken to that person and have done so to others in the past. many of us have found sites with the plugs left out and the trash laying next to the hole. I picked up the trash and filled the holes, hoping that that individual would not enjoy the hobby and quit before they could ruin it for others.

    does this topic even require a lot of thought ? if u rebury it ? and come back to that park or property u will only encounter it again ? DOH ! oh that deserves a double DOH ! and can slaw is created by lawn mower operators that cant muster up the will to pick up the cans thereby creating such. some of the can slaw i've dug if i left it on the ground if someone with bare feet would be severely hurt their lil footsies and have their day ruined from a trip to the emergency room although that would be a boost for the doctors day. but lets try not to be selfish here. my father used to say to me ? what ? do u need a kick in the axx to wake u up ? sometimes it worked ?

    I see it as just a matter of laziness. Wear a pouch, remove and dispose of your trash properly, and fill your holes. How hard is that?

    Think about the re-burying of trash, to where it was when you found it. It is not a danger more than it was before being dug. To a beginner, hunting in non-exciting parks and such, places which may never be visited again...finding it again a second time, isn't really in a beginner's mind.

    To be the Devil's Advocate a little, what danger exists by replacing and re-burying trash? There's a point on both sides.

    About laziness. Yes, but I suspect it's more likely to be about not wanting to "look like a old guy detecting." Headphones were a tussle, but HPs were a tussle for me when I started too. You have to admit, we all do look kinda geeky in full metal detecting "drag", until we quit worrying about it.

    A bit more tedious than the slob that left it there in the first place.

    I went to my new favorite spot recently and found a fresh dig hole, un filled, with a gd can right beside it. Not happy someone else is hitting my spot, VERY unhappy they may get us all banned. I pick up all trash when I go digging, not just metal trash. Last time I went out I filled a bag with bottles and cans, then found a huge dump in a nearby ravine. Reminded me of this Calvin and Hobbes.

    I would do a little talking, but I'm known for that anyway ! Just takes a few to ruin it for everyone.

    I used to dig up trash, and rebury it, but that was on my own property. Over time, it got to the point where I could recognise what I was digging over and over again, so I quit that. I take everything out now.

    I have been guilty of not fully excavating something once I find it to be trash, like big iron or a long copper pipe. I do take all the small stuff and dispose of it, though. Recycle cans, etc. I hunt sites with my digging partner that his now-deceased old partner used to hunt. He liked to re-bury trash, and we will often find holes with two or three shotgun shells in them that were left by Mr. Galvan. It's like his spirit is hunting with us, and laughing.

    I do the same. Even on a beach, I fill my holes (and remove trash) because someone could break an ankle in a hole.

    My detecting friend will leave the trash. Drives me nuts. I pick it up and put it in my pouch. Never confronted him about it. Think I'll just buy him a finds pouch.

    It makes good sense to take away everything you dig and I sure do try , BUT when you start digging plow shares that weigh 20LBS , chunks of a tin roof, fence post and other big items and your truck is a mile away, What are you to do then? I hunt old homesteads in the woods and there is a ton of iron at most sites.
    I do dig iron signals often and the pile of stuff is left in the ground or placed inside a hollow stump.
    small stuff like shot gun brass and buckshot I put in the pouch.
