BB is generally the largest size shot allowed for waterfowl. Sounds like you have some #4 buckshot which would work well for predator hunting.

The nickel plated is still probably lead so it would be a no go for waterfowl. I have not seen any non-toxic buckshot on the market. I still have some old 4 buck leftover from the lead waterfowl days. It is not in my home defense kit.

Fiocchi doesn't make a steel buckshot load that I've ever seen, so its safe to say that what you have is lead and not able to be used for waterfowl.

You can use buckshot on varmints/predators, bowling pins, pumpkins, etc.

I know of a couple of guys that used to use 4 buck for geese back in the day when lead was legal but today I wouldnt want that shot anywhere near my waterfowl hunting stuff or even in my truck during waterfowl season. looking for a ticket if you lead shot in your possesion during waterfowl season.

Only approved Non-toxic shot or steel shoot is legal for waterfowl and on WMAs

Yeah. It's really not even that great for self defense if overpenetration inside a house, etc. is a concern.

I meant to type "It is NOW in my home defense". A fat finger can sure change the meaning laugh

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
