Middleton suggested taking your extra grocery bags along to put trash in.“Just tucking a few in your tackle box or your back pocket before you head out ensures you take responsibility for your own trash and if you see other trash along the way and pick that up then you’re doing a really important thing,” said Middleton.She said other measures to keep people and animals safe on state properties include shooting only in designated areas.“You can choose to practice social distancing, choose to park only in designated areas. We can choose to drive only at safe speeds when we’re on property roads.” WhatsApp Facebook Twitter IndianaLocalNews Facebook Google+ By Network Indiana – May 31, 2020 0 234 last_img read more
