The National Wildlife Federation promotes the voluntary adoption of lead-free alternatives for hunters and anglers in the field to ensure clean, lead-free landscapes that support healthy wildlife populations.
The benefits of lead-alternatives include:
• Cost-effectiveness and proven performance of steel shot
• Better penetration and bullet retention of copper bullets
• Healthier game meat
• No poisoned non-target wildlife
• Better public perception of hunters as this country’s leading conservationists
The following products and resources provide non-toxic, lead-free alternatives to help in making the switch.
Hear stories from across the nation exploring how climate change is impacting our sporting lives.
