Does any one else feel uncomfortable discarding empty bean cans in the pristine wilderness. How about a trophy for caring for the environment?

nope, specially since there's no option to do anything with them.  I never ate the canned foods anyway, i sold them all. 

I spent 90% of my play time hunting so i always had meat on hand, and when i hit a full stack of more than one type with the Legend Satchel, i'd donate it to the camp.

My Arthur always rinsed his cans and put them in the recycling bin.

Your Arthur was probably raised by the  Murfree Brood and fed plastic straws to baby turtles just for fun. 🤨

I’m pretty sure anti-littering campaigns and the like didn’t exist in the late 19th century... or even into the mid 20th century for that matter.

Nor did shop discounts for 'honour' I guess. Yes it's a modern sensibility.

Maybe not for ‘honour’. But it wasn’t that long ago when we still had independent stores of various types. The kind where the guy behind the cash register also owned the place and knew all the regular customers by name... If you had a decent reputation at a place like this you could do things like ask him to hold your cheque until Friday. Or maybe he’d toss in something extra just because, or not worry when you came up $10 short for the bill... I’m thinking back in the RDR2 times this was even more a thing.

A scene in every western movie ever made:

The camera slowly pans back from an overhead view. There is man laying in bed motionless, his body riddled with bullet holes and barely clinging to sweet life. Days pass into night in a endless cycle as a lovely woman carefully wipes his forehead with a wet rag and silently prays at his bedside.

Finally a spark of light appears from his eyes and he slowly raises from the bed. Yes.....he is a broken man as he struggles to swallow spoonful of soup, knowing that his antagonists will soon return to finish the job they started.

Scene: A row of bottles and empty cans line the top rail of an old wooden fence, Gunshots ring out! But the scene remains static until we see a bottle explode. The camera pans back to the rancher. His left arm is cradled in a sling but his right hand firmly grasps his pistol as smoke curls from it's barrel. His aim is slow and erratic at first, but we then see a multitude of rusted cans, suspended in midair, with bullet holes in their centers.

The bad guys return, he shoots the guns out of the hands of the sidekicks and plants a shot in the forehead of their leader. 

If his wife had returned those bottle and cans to the recycling center the week previously......?

It would be cool if we could throw the empty can(s) up in the air and shoot it out of the air. Haha

i've lost count how many times i've been way out in the no-where hunting or exploring and found ancient rusted tin cans.  Doubt they're from way back in the 1800s, as this is a mining area that was founded in 1908 i'm guessing they're from around that time frame.  The ones you stumble across out in the 'wild' are all tin/steel and rusted mostly through.  So that there ages them to pre-WW2 when they switched to aluminum to give the war effort all the steel.  And in one of the groups i found the hole and cap style can, that was made in the late 1800's and very early 1900s.  I think it was around 1915 give or take that they started soldering the full cap to the can top and bottom.

I like to think that's what these were from, but with them being rusted through you can't tell really.
