Non-toxic shot required

Dates:
All year
Special:
Use of non-toxic shot is required statewide for all waterfowl hunting. When you hunt to take ducks, geese, mergansers, coots, moorhens, rails, or snipe anywhere in the state of Michigan, you may not possess or use shotshells loaded with a material other than non-toxic steel, bismuth, tungsten-iron, tungsten-polymer, tungsten matrix, or other shot determined by the FWS to be non-toxic. Waterfowl hunters using muzzleloaders must also use FWS-approved nontoxic shot. Shells loaded with lead shot may be used to hunt other small game species, including woodcock; however, we recommend using non-toxic shot for the hunting of all small game species. NOTE: Check area rules and the DNR website for non-toxic shot regulations for non-waterfowl hunting on managed waterfowl areas.
