This comment discusses the merits of the regulations prohibiting the use of lead shot for the hunting of waterfowl. The evolution of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is examined along with the advantages of hunting as a tool for effective wildlife conservation. The controversy of lead poisoned waterfowl is also discussed, and a more effective conservation measure than steel shot is proposed.
