    Does a bear shit in the woods

    Itís about time we all tidied our act up. Iíve been hunting a lot around the North Island and all in places that are well off the tourist routes. Thereís shit and toilet paper fucken everywhere !!!!
    Iíve been shepherding and managing remote farms for the majority of my working life, and have a dump with a view and fresh air most days , but I donít leave a mess like is been left everywhere now. It takes fuck all to kick some dirt over it and burn the shit paper.
    Iím quite a big fella and Iím really looking forward to catching some fuckwit out because Iím going to rub his nose in it.
    Apologies for the swearing but itís a shambles out there!

    Agree 100%. And there are all sorts of people who you'd think would be more considerate. When you have dogs in the High Country its a bloody lottery whose shit they are going to find to roll in, so you soon learn to take good care of "yours".

    However its not a recent thing either, I recall riding through the Nevis at least 30 years ago, and making camp in the dark beside the road when we decided our horses weren't up to the climb out. Every bloody stone had shit under it.

    The last time I looked the patch of burnt earth and bush in the North Arm (Kaimanawa's) where that Awe-strucken-failure set fire to his shit paper 30 odd years ago has recovered to the stage that unless you knew of it one couldn't tell it from the surrounding scrub.

    You just beat me to that occasion, Aussie doing what he thought was his rightful obligation.

    Anyone doing it again will be given a bill for firefighting and loss of manuka honey production, so the permits state now.

    Welcome to the new outdoors!

    I'm sure there are places in the North Island that are just as bad as we have down here in this region but what gets me about the mess down here is it's not just out in hills, its right in town as well. Walk around the river track in Arrowtown and take two steps off to the side... shit everywhere. Just about every walking track in the basin is similar and some places are just shocking.

    As an example, the well-publicised walk to the top of Ben Lomond up behind the Skyline has finally been recognised as a problem area and toliets are being arranged at the saddle. Whereas the track might have seen a handful of walkers per day a few years ago, prior to the Covid lockdown it was estimated around 650 people per day were walking that track and it seemed half of them wanted to take a dump somewhere along the way. Watching the line of people walking up the ridge was reminiscent of the photos you see of the queues to stand on the top of Everset. The mess was abysmal.

    While you can understand how places like that might get abused due to the numbers of trampers, I'm now finding piles of shit in the more remote places we hunt too. It appears "getting off the beaten track" and adventure racing or adventure race training runs are the "in thing" and these people are typically in a hurry. Piles of goat shit are being replaced with piles of human shit and it pisses me off royally. Like you, Shortmag, I'd love to educate them.

    FFS people, dig a hole and bury it. And don't leave piles of toilet paper laying around. It takes a few seconds to kick a hole in the ground beforehand and less to cover it afterwards.

    If the Bear is a polar bear then No it craps out on the ice with the rest of the Eskimos? Wrong thread

    Im thinkin that there are more animals in the bush than peeps , so how come the bush appears to be loaded with people shit. I think that ,as is evidenced by comments in previous posts the issue is the toilet paper and the bright whiteness thereof ( apart from a stripe down the middle ) in stark contrast with its surroundings , so Im further thinkin that if it wasnt for the crap wrap waving at us we wouldnt see the shit .......the answer is obvious ( or actually not , as one would hope ) , and should be popular with hunters, CAMMO TOILET PAPER . There are a variety of patterns available and it take up bugger all room in the pack , one could carry a variety of patterns depending on the terrain one expected to cover. Method of application could get a bit personal depending on ones diet and agility ......theres the "spring roll" for firmer produce , the "land mine " and the custard square " for other types .

    Whilst I applaud @hamsav solution the white flags do give a warning as where not to put your pack down.....

    Great idea on the camo tp. It then becomes self adhesive for wrapping your rifle scope and suppressor

    To answer your question. No, bears don't always shit in the woods.
    Here's a picture of one my daughter took while hunting in Canada. If you look closely it is in the process of crapping. And it's not in the woods.
    But I agree on the subject. Very annoying. Especially where others are likely to encounter it. Takes minimal effort to cover.Name:  P1060718.JPG

    If we had actual "bears" shitting in the woods the townies and tourists would be too scared to actually go there so would not be shitting in the woods

    I would have thought a bear would shit wherever it likes. After all, it is a bear.
