Default Non-tox Shot on Federal Land

how many of you hunt land where non-tox shells
are required. I would be curious to know the state
and type of bird you hunt.

I believe that anytime you hunt waterfowl, whether over water or in fields. Non-toxic shot must be used.
Also, last time I hunted a Refuge that was selectively open to hunting, again non-toxic shot was required, with no lead in your possession.
I'm not sure if it makes any difference what the quarry is that is being hunted.

That is what I thought. We have a pheasant hunting trip
to Kansas planned so we are gonna bring HeviMetal
Pheasant 2 3/4 #4's. 1500 FPS should do the trick on those
Kansas Pheasants.

Our days in the Pheasant fields are few and far between so, I am
going to use the best ammo I can find and that is the HeviShot
pheasant loads. I am sure hoping that the numbers of pheasants
in North Central Kansas are high this year.

It isn't just over water or waterfowl you need to use non-toxic shot. Fed Waterfowl production lands also require non-toxic shot to hunt both waterfowl and upland game. So, we do, again tomorrow in western MN in the snow storm.

I have decided to use strictly HeviShot Pheasant on all
Pheasant trips. The stuff is awesome and I like it
better than any other shell.

I hunt Pheasant on Army Corp of Engineers land here in Illinois and am required to use non-toxic shot. I use #4 Steel.
