Hunters are increasingly going lead-free, whether to reduce lead exposure in wildlife, eliminate lead fragments in game meat, or gain a desired ballistic performance. Wildlife biologists and conservation professionals stand on the front lines of this topic, so it is important we understand the nuances behind this sometimes controversial issue. In this workshop, participants will rotate through stations centered around 1) the problem of lead poisoning in wildlife, 2) the ballistics of lead-free bullets, and 3) effective messaging. This Montana-focused workshop will be a fantastic opportunity to network and help spread the awareness of lead-free ammunition across the state.
