Thanks for All of Your Hard Work!
Earlier this week the Senate Omnibus Game and Fish Bill, introduced by State Senator Satveer Chaudhary (DFL-50), was successfully amended to remove a lead ban that would have been detrimental to hunters and sportsman alike. Senate File 3385 originally contained a provision that would ban the use of lead shot for hunting small game on public lands in Minnesota. Lead alternatives are expensive and have reduced capabilities, and only increase wounding rates of game animals. There has also been no science-based evidence that lead shot has been a problem in Minnesota.
Thanks to the efforts to all those members you called their State Senators and helped remove this unneeded lead ban.
