It may be nothing to be concerned about and may have indeed been an isolated incident.

But, why not check the ground meat and be sure? What's it going to hurt.

The next few problems this may bring about that may be worse than the potential lead would be:

1. Restrictions from charities about taking deer killed with lead bullets.

2. States putting restrictions on lead hunting bullets or slugs.

The government tends to overreact in situations like these and put these types of restrictions in place (often without complete information). Kind of like killing a mouse with a bazooka, but when has the government ever been subtle?


I'll take my chances as I continue to eat my harvested venison. Neither my father, grandfather or great fathers as far removed as I know of die of lead poisioning...and they ate venison they'd killed with flintlocks,shotguns,rifles, pistols.
But wouldn't it be poetic justice to a deer to see me die from eating his lead ridden body? :>)

Well just look at it this way, people have been killing deer with rifles and shotguns for 200 years and yet there has been no proof about it hurting or killing people. Why worry now, because some crazy vegitarian wants to get rid of hunting getting more reasons isn't gonna stop me from hunting deer.
