Course Outline

There are two effective methods that hunters can use to reduce the amount of lead they are putting into the food stream.

  • A hunter can choose to hunt with non-lead bullets.
    • These bullets are very effective for hunting, without the negative unintended side effects such as lead poisoning.
    • When a hunter uses a non-lead bullet, they are providing a clean food source for scavengers as well as themselves.
  • Hunters can also remove the entire carcass out of the field, including the gut pile. This is a good option for hunters who still decide to use a traditional lead-based bullet. However, it can be difficult and does not provide a clean food source for scavengers.
