We discussed this topic recently. Here’s the latest from Monterey’s The Herald:
_Citing the diminishing condor population, the state Fish and Game Commission decided Friday to consider banning or limiting lead bullets for big game hunting in California when it meets March 2 in Arcata.
The commission, meeting in Monterey on Friday, unanimously voted in favor of serving notice of its intent to amend hunting regulations for 2007-2010 with an aim to eliminating lead bullets in the California Condor range.
Department of Fish and Game officials offered the commission three alternatives related to regulating leaded bullets: ban the ammunition in specific deer-hunting areas, ban it statewide, or offer hunters incentives to voluntarily use nonleaded ammunition while hunting deer, elk, wild pigs and other large animals._
Which–if any–do you think is the best option?
