We didn’t need a survey to know how the majority of affected hunters feel about California’s lead ban. But we got one anyway, and it reveals–surprise–that one in seven hunter don’t like it. Roughly 60 percent called copper bullets expensive, ineffective, inaccurate, or inhumane.
What’s a little more surprising, or at least interesting, is that a whopping 30 percent simply ignored the law.
From The Monterey Herald:
[These hunters] said they hunted in the condor range with lead bullets. One. . . wrote, “They (copper bullets) don’t work. Tired of chasing wounded animals.” Another stated, “bring down the cost and increase effectiveness, and I will comply.
So what would you do? Comply, not comply, or as one hunter did, simply not hunt?
