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.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
