U of M Lead Survey

3 posts in this topic

Got this lead survey last week in the mail- anyone else get one? If so, is this survey more than likely going to mean the end of lead shot in southern MN?

It's to gauge your opinions. I believe that is Dr. David Fulton's study? The study doesn't make decisions about future regulations but it judges how the public thinks about lead.

Transitioning out of lead is just a matter of time as has been discussed here on FM. Someone in MN DNR told me that it will happen in the next 15 years and it will just be how quickly the state chooses to act. IMO, the survey just tells them how ready the public is for the change. Does MN want to be one of the first to go nontoxic and set an example or be last and dragged into it?

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
