Default the good samaritan award

this is quick and simple-
as i am sure that you all are responsible for any of your own pets refuse, i would like to know what kinda action you guys have tried to patrol areas near to where you live.
my greatest, and easiest recommendation is throw plastic grocery bag in your vest. then pick up the sh#t as needed.

I pick up trash all the time. I pick up stray mono, beer cans, even cigarette butts sometimes. You however, just found the line I don't cross. I'm sure we all have a line we are just not willing to cross when it comes to this sort of thing. With this line, I'm on one side, the poop is on the other.

I couldn't agree more. Picking up after my pet is one thing....picking up after someone elses....not so much.

When it comes to fishing, I always try to leave the area cleaner than when I got there. Picking up garbage etc. I have lots of pockets in my vest, not a big deal to put some trash in there and dispose of it when I am done fishing for the day. Just trying to preserve our fishing waters as best as I can.

Where do you fish that you're concerned about picking up poop?
Some places I go might have Canada geese 'guano' everywhere and man that stuff is slick so watch your step, but I'm not picking it up

Poop is biodegradeable within a short period of time...Not touching it. I have lived my entire life in the country and never thought of poop being refuse, must be a city thing.

I use my kayak as a means of transportation on the river and some days if you were to look inside you would think a hobo was living in there for all of the trash picked up during the day.

My dog's leash is a heavy cotton rope horse lead. If we walk the neighborhood or the greenbelt here in town, I'll pick up after her. I taped a medium-sized prescription pill bottle to the lead near the handle end. I can stuff three grocery plastic bags in the pill bottle. That way, the bags always go where the dog goes.
You might try a small container or pouch on the dog's collar if you don't use a leash.
I like to pick up trash where I fish, too. I once made the mistake of picking up a diaper left on the bank on a cold spring day. We put it in one of the buckets in the back of the Subaru wagon for the trip home...til' it warmed up in the car: UGH! GAG!! Quick, find the nearest dumpster!
