Please Make Your Voice Heard Today!
The Senate Omnibus Game and Fish Bill, introduced by State Senator Satveer Chaudhary (DFL-50), will be heard on the Senate floor any day.
Senate File 3385 contains a harmful provision that would ban the use of lead shot for hunting small game on public lands in Minnesota. Lead alternatives are extremely expensive and have reduced capabilities, which would only increase wounding rates of game animals. There has been no science-based evidence that lead shot has been a problem in Minnesota.
As Senate File 3385 will be heard any day on the Senate floor, it is important that our opposition to this anti-hunting measure be known. Please contact State Senator Chaudhary, the bill sponsor, at (651) 296-4334 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and respectfully urge him to make the necessary changes and remove the lead ban from Senate File 3385.
