It's coming to all of us, it's only a matter of time until non-tox is the rule. My waterfowl holes are frozen, the big birds have apparently gone to big water. SWMBO has decreed several holiday tasks, so spending the day tying is not an option, and I try not to push the few remaining wild birds in my spots once it gets this cold. So I ponder the question of non-toxic shot. As a waterfowler, I get it. For big birds, ducks, and pheasants, I've used steel for some time. But for the small, wonderful upland birds: quail, chukar, huns, large steel pellets don't seem proper. Blasting a quail with a 3 inch steel 4 is not consistent with my, ah, training. I've always liked 7 1/2's or 8's for these birds, and I've not seen fine steel or non-tox on the shelves. Any ideas from you folks?
