Scientific Evidence

Demo Corroborated science must form the foundation of effective fish and wildlife management policies and regulations. HuntForTruth.org has engaged the expertise of scientists and specialists to investigate and research these critical issues to reveal the true information and science underlying the use of lead ammunition.

LEGAL DEBATE

Demo Numerous environmental organizations have used the legal system to push their anti-hunting agendas, extend their influence over governmental agencies and broaden their authority. Environmental organizations, such as the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club, annually file hundreds of lawsuits nationwide to advance their political ideology, but ultimately to the financial detriment of wildlife conservation measures.

Politics Over Science

In 2019, AB 711 will ban all hunting with lead ammunition throughout California. Whether you believe the bill is the result of an anti-hunting agenda or a true concern for the environment, the path this legislation has taken should raise everyone’s eyebrows.

The Fish and Game Commission has expressed serious concern regarding the questionable science alleged to support the ban of all lead based ammunition in California.

QUOTES ON HUNTING and LEAD AMMUNITION

…allow us the opportunity to try to make this work before you go to the legislature and get a bill going. That’s what rushed it through the last time. Give us an opportunity [to address this issue] first.
Jim KelloggCalifornia Fish and Game Commission
lead isotope tracer techniques are best applied in cases of lead exposure with other supporting evidence, . . . lead isotopic compositions are not unique to a single source[.]

We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States.  We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California.  Then we will take it state by state.
Wayne Pacelle

Humane Society of The United States
If we’re not gonna share all the information with all of the parties, … then we’ll never get to the right answer.  We want the data.  If that data says that’s the source, then it’s the source.  And if the data says something else, then we have to face up to that as well.

Game Commission
You’ll find that the people behind the ban were not the ones doing the work on the ground actually talking to and working with hunters. Many who have advocated for a ban could care less about your and my ability to hunt.

If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.

lead isotopic signature is a tool to look at lead exposure pathways in organisms or in people, it does not provide a unique, singularly unique tool to do that, . . . the lead isotopic signatures of different sources of lead in our environment are not singularly unique to those sources.

It is astonishing to me that after more than a dozen years of condor releases, during which time the major risks to survival relate to what condors ingest, there has never been a published assessment or detailed account of feeding observations and reports.

I presented to the CAL F&G commission on two separate occasions prior to the ban [AB 821] because I felt that if I didn’t represent data that I was a part of collecting, the activists would do it for us and misrepresent our findings to fit their need to push (threaten) a lead ban in California

Determination of the source(s) of lead hazards for wildlife, such as condors, cannot rely solely on isotopic composition analysis …
