Dove hunters allowed to use lead shot

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says those hunting mourning doves this fall will be allowed to use lead shot except in wildlife areas that require the use of non-toxic shot.

The DNR made the correction in the 2011-2012 Hunting and Trapping Regulations booklet.  It will be on page three, under the heading "Highlights or Changes to the 2011-2012 Hunting and Trapping Regulations".

The wildlife areas that require the use of non-toxic shot for species, except deer and turkey, are listed on page 16 of the guide.

The guide is available at 800 locations across Iowa and online at www.iowadnr.gov/hunting.
