Can you shoot pheasants in a waterfowl wildlife management area with lead shot?

Answer

Yes. A hunter may use toxic shot for hunting pheasants on Fish and Game wildlife management areas that emphasize waterfowl hunting. But many or all federal wildlife refuges require nontoxic shot. Hunters should check with the refuge of their choice before hunting there.
