Lead Shot Ban Proposed in Minnesota

A public hearing is scheduled to ban lead shot in wildlife management areas in Minnesota.

On Thursday, March 10, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will host a public hearing on the proposed rule that would ban the use of lead shot on wildlife management areas in the farmland zone beginning in 2018. The rule was proposed last October and opposed by the NSSF along with numerous other pro-hunting organizations.

It is imperative that you show up to the hearing on March 10 and voice your opposition to this unnecessary proposal. The public hearing will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources headquarters cafeteria, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.

Should the proposed rule be approved, this would be the second-largest statewide ban, trailing only California. For more information regarding NSSF's position on traditional ammunition, click here.
