Iowa: Legislators expected to have intense debate over lead shot and doves

 Legislators are likely to engage in a spirited debate over what kind of bullets may be fired at doves. Last year, in uncharacteristically speedy fashion, lawmakers voted to legalize dove hunting in Iowa. But Senator Dick Dearden of Des Moines and others are upset with the Iowa Natural Resources Commission's decision to forbid hunters from using lead shot when firing at doves.

Dearden says he got plenty of hate mail after spearheading passage of the dove hunting law last year. “My favorite was a woman who said: ‘You’re a sick old man. I hope you die while hunting mourning doves,’” Dearden says. “I e-mailed her back and said: ‘So do I.’”

That's funny right there!  ;D
 
 
Can you tell that the article was written by either a non or anti-hunter?  This phrase pretty well is the tip off...........

 One study suggested lead particles have been found up to a foot and a half away, causing a greater risk of lead poisoning to humans than previously thought.

That may be true of a single projectile that fragments, but lead shot?  :?   Also, I'd like to see how those lead particles are going to travel 1.5 feet on a dove.  ::)

  O0 We sure do! All those years of fighting to get a dove season while scads of doves were mocking us was hard to accept.  :tickedoff
