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 had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
