So this little item was down in a gully quite a ways off the road. It had been used as a shooting range target for a number of years.
Here's a view of the uphill path it eventually took. It's maybe 50 yards at about a 45 degree angle.
Surprisingly, with a bit of cable and some chains, it came out of the woods pretty easily. Now to bag up the trash inside it and get it all hauled off the mountain.
