|The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has drafted a phaseout of lead ammunition on at least five National Wildlife Refuges in the 2022-23 Hunt Fish Rule. Hunters are free to choose alternatives, but the choice must remain with the individual and not mandated by the federal government.
Amid a nation-wide ammo shortage, banning lead on certain federal lands will undoubtedly keep many away from hunting and will reduce access to public lands. Any attempt to restrict use on public lands is simply another effort to downsize the hunting community. Men and women across the country already face enough barriers to hunting – expensive ammo should not be added to the list.
