Iowa House OKs plan to overturn dove hunting lead shot ban

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa House has approved a resolution that would overturn a ban on the use of lead shot when hunting doves.

Dove hunting was legalized by the Legislature last year. Backers of the new resolution say the Natural Resources Commission overstepped its authority when writing rules governing the hunting of doves, including a ban on using lead shot.

Those who support the ban on lead shot say other animals can eat the lead and that can lead to sickness or death.

The House approved the resolution on a 68-27 vote Thursday, and the issue now goes to the Senate, where approval is expected.
