Three new shot types approved for waterfowl

U.S. Fish and Wildlife — Aug. 11, 2004

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service yesterday approved three new non-toxic shot types B tungsten-bronze-iron, a new formulation of tungsten-iron, and tungsten-tin-bismuth B for use in waterfowl hunting.

The approval published in the Federal Register today. Today's action brings to 10, the number of non-toxic shot types available to waterfowl hunters.

"Protecting our waterfowl populations while ensuring waterfowl hunting opportunities are two things we take very seriously," said Service Director Steve Williams. AWith each new shot type approved, hunters will have a wider range of choices as they continue to play a key role in the conservation of waterfowl and its habitat."

International Nontoxic Composites Corporation's application of tungsten-bronze-iron shot, ENVIRON-Metal Inc.'s application of tungsten-iron shot, and Victor Oltrogge's application for tungsten-tin-bismuth shot have all been approved after being subjects to a rigorous testing protocol.

Previously, hunters were allowed to use steel shot, bismuth-tin, tungsten-iron, tungsten-polymer, tungsten- matrix, tungsten-nickel-iron and tungsten-iron-nickel-tin. For more information on toxic and nontoxic shot, please see
