Lead Ban Chronicles – Breaking News – Ventana Wildlife Society Providing Lead-Free Ammo To Central Coast Hunters
March 27, 2012
Ventana Wildlife Society is offering 2 boxes of free non-lead ammunition to San Benito and Monterey county residents.
We know that hunters and ranchers have a long history of conserving wildlife. Hunting is an effective wildlife management tool and creates food resources for scavenging species, such as California Condors and Bald Eagles. However, these species are at risk of lead poisoning if they ingest lead bullet fragments in game carcasses and gut piles. By using non-lead ammo, you have an opportunity to protect wildlife and advance the long-standing tradition of wildlife conservation in our community. Act now to get your free non-lead ammunition while funding for this program lasts.
To get your ammo, go to the Ventana Wildlife Society’s web page and fill out the form you’ll find there.
