I had a follow-up phone call from a law enforcement officer with the USFS this morning, reference the complaint I made after my observation of two shooters at Alambre Tank off Redington Road in the Coronado National Forest. The officer said they had found the two people involved and had questioned them about their activities on Jan 14. They admitted to trashing the area, camping too near a water source, and having an unattended campfire. The officer said they were "dealt with accordingly" and thanked me for reporting the incident.
The lesson I take from this is, if you see something, say something. Be prepared to back up your complaint with photos as I did. You can contact the USFS or NPS on their websites. I'm impressed that they ran with it and completed their investigation so quickly.
