Proposed Lead Ban In California

Friday, February 9, 2007

When it meets on March 2, the California Fish and Game Commission will consider amending the state’s hunting regulations for 2007-2010 to ban or limit the use of lead ammunition for hunting in the range of the California condor.  The Department of Fish and Game suggested three alternatives to the Commission:  ban the use of lead ammunition for big game hunting, ban the use of lead ammunition statewide; or offer hunters incentives to voluntarily use non-lead ammunition. 

Comments can be sent to the Commission by mail at: 1416 Ninth Street, P.O. Box 944209, Sacramento, CA 94244-2090, or by contacting the Commission through its website at www.fgc.ca.gov .
