Are FMJ's legal rounds for predators?

7 posts in this topic

Are FMJ (full metal jacket) rounds legal in Minnesota for predator hunting? Or for that matter, any hunting in general?

Thanks...

No, they are not. It states in the handbook that you can only use expanding bullets.

I don't recall anywhere where it states its not legal for predators. I don't recommend them though. There are much better bullets out there for predators then FMJs.

I agree. But are these other bullets "hide friendly"?

Fur friendly? Probably not. But I've shot fox with FMJ's before and if you hit bone, they make quite a hole. I've also hit coyote with FMJ's and they've kept running. For me, I'd rather shoot an expanding type bullet and have a dead critter then have one run off.

They ARE legal. Shoot whatever you want.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
