The lead ammo debate

In fashionable circles, including segments of the sportsman community, the debate about banning lead ammunition altogether is picking up a good head of steam. An article recently in the Northwoods Sporting Journal by Mark McCollough addressed the lead ammunition issue. McCollough, who is a federal wildlife biologist as well as a hunter, wrote: "I am convinced that lead in the deer, moose and caribou that I harvest could harm my family, me, and wildlife so I am making a personal choice to switch to non-­lead ammunition." Although McCollough noted that a couple western states, spurred by California's lead ammo ban, have also banned lead rifle ammunition, he failed to mention this: The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is pushing the lead­ban agenda. Yes, HSUS, the same folks who brought you the Maine bear referendum, is using the lead-ammo ban as another incremental tool to be used in their ultimate quest to outlaw all recreational hunting in America.

Far fetched?...
