Public Land Pack Out

This Public Lands Month, help take on the task of keeping our public lands and waters clean and open to recreation! The 2020 Public Land Pack Out is here, and we need your help to make it a roaring success!

Last year, BHA members packed out a stunning 600 bags worth of trash from fishing access sites, wildlife management areas and other areas on which hunters and anglers depend for access and opportunity. This year, we're gunning for 1,000 bags of trash packed out in the month of September.

To support this effort, our friends at First Lite have generously offered to donate $5 to BHA for every bag of trash packed out, up to $5,000. First Lite also will be giving away 20 gift cards valued at $100 each to the top 20 public land trash packers. Additionally, 10 gift cards will be given away throughout the month to those who share a photo of the Public Land Pack Out on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #publiclandpackout and #publiclandowner.

Grab some garbage bags and help us leave your public lands a little better than you found them!

Here’s how you can participate:
  • Pick up trash while you’re out hunting and record the total number of bags of trash picked up. Then, submit through the portal below!
  • Share your pictures of public land trash being packed out on social media using the hashtags #publiclandpackout and #publiclandowner.
