    Re: To the idiot who -

    If the person don't fill their hole's back in, I doubt they would have any idea this site exists.
    This is very true. If they did read about someone leaving a mess they wouldn't think it meant them. If I see anyone intentionally leaving plugs out and trash laying around like that I would report them to the park manager with photos, car license plate and ask for a bounty brought in dead.

    Same here. We even make sure the grass in the sod is facing in the exact right position. (as it was growing).

    When we were in Pa, we had someone (don't know who) who left their holes all the time. He must not have been a good md-er, though.

    Before you fill in his holes - pass your detector over it - cause this guy must have been impatient - found several coins in his open holes (along with trash, too). We picked the coins, disposed of the trash (I mean, who wants to detect trash - especially for a second time), and filled his holes.

    That kind of irresponsibility is why we get a bad name. We have actually gotten a few "attaboys", when people have seen us take the garbage out of an area - we don't need another slob.

    Re: To the idiot who -

    Strolling through and read this, talked to a maintenance man this summer (2010), he said they have been asking all md's to leave JPS property. Don't know if this is school policy or just the lawn guys being po'd. I have a pretty good idea who did it, don't know his name though, but I've cleaned up behind him before.

    Too bad, hate to hear about this stuff, even though I don't detect the schools.

    I've seen the damage those lawn guys do. Scalping, burns, and gouging. The zero-turn mowers are the worst, I know because I own one. I'm not defending careless diggers. The big mowers will rip a plug right out of the ground. I'm careful when I dig park property, but have been accused of leaving piles of dirt where I've hunted, when in fact it was ground moles. What a mess those animals make!

    The golfers are terrible too. They leave bad wedges from hitting those balls, but no one ever blames them.

    The park I went to this week looked like a minefield in places from those moles! Little dirt volcanoes everywhere.

    Re: To the idiot who -

    This person apparently goes to Wolf Lake too. It is not squirrels either. He leaves dirt outside the hole and the garbage he does not want along with the plug. Cascades Hill was in horrible shape also.

    Re: To the idiot who -

    I wonder if these "dum-dum" folks realize what they are doing.

    If nothing else - I take ALL my garbage (and any other I find) - for a selfish reason - I don't want to find it again in the future. I mean, duh.

    And, we not only fill our own holes (coin "popping" doesn't always work-since we find more than just coins), but we have, on many occasions, filled other people's holes.

    And, we have actually had people say things like "oh - I'm so glad that you are cleaning up the area at the same time" - people notice, if if you
    don't think they do. They also notice the stuff that is bad. We fill other people's holes because WE want to be able to come back to an area.

    I mean - just a little common sense goes a long way. I guess "common sense" is not all that "common"

    Maybe with all the garbage he won't go back to Cascades. I never detect the hill, I leave that to the people with far more patience than me.

    Haven't been to Wolf Lake in a long time, with gas as high as it is. Found my first Barber quarter in the lake there.

    I've hit Cascades several times. The best I've ever done was a wheatie or two. I just don't get it.
    I remember the Jackson Cit Pat doing an article about a detectorist who hunted the Cascades...must of been back in the late '70's, early 80's. He displayed a nice IH penny he found there...

    Re: To the idiot who -

    When I leave it's just like it should be less trash and no holes, I just can't believe that people don't take the time to fill hole and then again I do Good hunting.

    Re: To the idiot who -

    I was at Sharp park yesterday, it looked like a battleground. Sod chunks laying everywhere, and hundreds of holes. I saw the culprits! Dudes practicing their golf swings...and divots EVERYWHERE!

    Re: To the idiot who -

    fistfulladirt,

    That's one of those things that nobody wants to talk about. It amazes me (it shouldn't) that in many places, people practice their swings, heck, we find golf balls all over the place - but - that's ok, because golf is a money-making "sport". Sponsors make money, golfers make money, advertisers make money, television stations make money - so, its ok. In fact, more "natural land" has been made into golf courses and ski lodges than anything WE have ever had access to. They don't care about the environment, or the endangered species, or if animals can get to water, when it involves golf and skiing.

    But, then again, those environmentalists quite often have golf and skiing weekends, don't they
