DNR's Vacuous Nannyism

Your mother had nothing on Wisconsin's Damn Near Russia.

The state Department of Natural Resources says shooting deer with lead ammunition can leave tiny lead particles or fragments in the deer’s body far from the wound channel.

No evidence links human consumption of venison to lead poisoning. But the DNR says the risk shouldn’t be ignored.

Hunters should consider using copper or other high-weight retention bullets and practice their marksmanship so they can make cleaner, deadlier shots away from major muscle areas.

Good thing these guys don't work at Department of Transportation, or they'd be warning people about smoking while driving.
