I walk in the woods for work in places where a lot of people probably think no one's going to see their poop... there are a lot of nasty people out there.

When my wife and I went camping in the Bighorns in WY a couple of years back, you couldn't get off the trails or away from the camping areas without running into a minefield of exposed poop.

I think the Tentlab Deuce is a great thing to carry. Forest Service ought to require a trowel like they require bear canisters in some places.

I use one of those titanium hand trowels, less than an oz I think. It’s not easy on the hands if you jam it into a root or rock, but I recently started carrying one of those Mtn Sticks (which has been a surprisingly helpful tool for so many tasks) which works really well to loosen everything up and then just excavate with the trowel or by hand.

Nothing worse than coming across someone’s shit pile.

So, what poop shovel do you "run?"
I operate the Dig Dig, keep it in a side pocket ready for rapid deployment. Might need to get a speed holster for it though, just depends on how many tacos I had for breakfast.

Very original 😉

When I have the “runs” there isn’t time for a shovel.

When people say “run” in that context it annoys the shit outta me 🤣

Poop shovel? Maybe I'm just a savage, but I kick out a spot with my boot, poo and kick dirt and sticks over it and top it with a rock. I do love these kinds of threads though, maybe one day I'll run a poop kit with a sweet shovel in it.

Took a marine hunting a couple times, he definitely didn’t bury his shit, and he definitely wouldn’t use the term surface shitter. The term is a snow flake term, not the action. So does bear shit contaminate the water too? Maybe you could ask them to carry around a shit shovel! This is why we have water filters big dawg. Guess I need start every post with: caution trigger warning!

There was a time a guy didnt need to filter water before a bunch of folks that dont know not to shit next to a creek decided to reconnect with nature.

Now you literally can not flip over a rock at a couple high elevation lakes without finding a brown trout and white paper.

If you can reliably kick a hole 6-8” deep it makes sense. If you are kicking a little 2-3” depression it doesn’t and you should really consider a lightweight trowel. It wouldn’t make you any less manly… I promise. 😃

You can even add to the savage aspect of digging a hole by wiping with a handful of snow when it’s available. I choose that over TP or wet wipes every time. Nothing gets you cleaner. 👍

I thought dilution is the solution to pollution? Why wouldn't we just poop right into the water?

But if we are going to dig holes, why not use the spork you already carry? The long handle model is preferred both for reaching the bottom of freeze dried meal pouches, as well as for leverage when digging. The titanium models bend back to their original shape pretty readily. The bonus to this method is that dirt and sand clean cheese off the spork better than anything else I've found.
