Are you always good about picking up your cartridges when hunting? I wonder how much brass is never picked up and accumulates in the woods every year. I make it a point to always pick up mine. Just wondering if others do the same or if there are some who don't care if it gets picked up or not.

I only pick up the ones that kill something and I have 9mm and 40cal shell casings laying all over my yard. I guess thats not the most environmentally friendly answer but it is an honest answer

It's negligible. If you're worried about the environment, you should be far more worried about the lead that gets left in the fields, in the form of lead shot. I bet that amount is massive. (I'm not worried about it)

I normally do now, if I can find them. But never thought about it years ago. When we dog hunted back in the late seventies and early 80's, I piled all the buckshot hulls up next to a pine on my most productive dog drive stand. It was a pile of them there when we stopped hunting that area. haha

I always keep the emtpy cartridge and throw them in a box with the date written on them. Turkey hunting, I make sure to grab the hull and will try to find the wad too, along with picking up every feather I can possibly find and kicking dirt or leaves over any blood on the ground......I'm like serve pro of the woods when I kill a bird........."like it never even happened". I leave NO EVIDENCE.

I don’t think it’s much of an issue, Mother Nature reclaims what’s hers. I pick all mine up anyway since I reload and all my brass is Lapua

I pick up any I see that can be reloaded. I even pick up the ones at the range that people leave.

Just curious on the amount. I saw the 19-20 deer kill report on the DCNR site. Almost 30,000 deer reported so far. Imagining in my head what 30,000 empty brass would look like in a pile. If 75,000 deer are killed by the end of the season and none of the brass was picked up that's a bunch. Over 50 years of it? (just picked a number I got no real data) That's almost 4M cartridges. How big a pile is that?

Go check out a good duck hole on public land. Deer hunters and the brass they leave are a drop in the bucket compared to what some duck hunters leave floating around.

I pick up every round from hunting, dove and duck hunting included. The only ones I don't pick up are the one's the .270 BAR slings into the next area code. If by chance I do find them, I wait 10 minutes before I pick it up, as they come out the temperature of lava.

I love it when I find shell casings on public land. Tells me where someone shot at one. Walking down a road last year I found 5 empty 300grain slug 12guage casings in one spot. Someone can't shoot. I pick up any I find and what comes out of my gun.

It’s amazing the amount of trash in the woods. I always like to leave it better than I found it.

I pick it all up and save them to sell to reload. I tumble them clean and sell them.

Less than a few dump truck loads. That much shucks blows out of the back of Morris's rolloffs every couple hours smile

I always keep mine. The only ones I don’t are the ones that in a heated moment the bolt got jerked back hard and flung it somewhere I couldn’t find.
