    He went on to say that Cabelas, bass pro and other retailers should offer a recycling program for empty hulls in good shape. Hunters would bring in used shells and would in turn get a rebate on new shells. The retailers could sell the shells in good shape to reloaders, or send them back to the manufacturer for recycling.

    With his 11 year old eyes, he just couldn’t understand why some people would leave their emptied plastic shells to disintegrate and pollute the bush for years. He wisely compared his idea to bottle/can returns at the beer store.

    So what do you all think? Is it possible?
    I can't see why it shouldn't be. I was looking for 10 gauge hulls a few years back, and I checked with a Ballistic Product distributor out west, and manage to purchase once fired hauls he had in stock. Since you raised the issue I would dearly wish that along with beer cans and bottles. They would offer a recycling program where a rebate is offered on plastic soda and water bottles as well as empty coffee and Frosty cups that continue to litter our streets.

    You don't stop hunting because you grow old. You grow old because you stop hunting.
