so how is a box of lead shot any different? law doesnt say on ur person it clear says in ur possesion.
No that is not the way you should have read my post. By the virtue of you sitting in your vehicle, you are now in possession of anything in it. When it comes down to hunting and possesion laws it is what you have on your person while you are physically hunting. There is no way anyone can tell me that if my truck is parked at the ramp and I come back from hunting and load the boat, get checked by the GW and there is lead shells in the truck then he can lawfully give me a ticket. I am not hunting at that time and he couldn't prove that I was hunting with the lead shells. There is still something in this country called "innocent until proven guilty". It would not be legal. Now if I am out in my boat hunting and he stops by and I have lead in my boat then once again by virtue of being in the boat and duck hunting, I am in possession of lead shot. That is a no brainer. I guarantee that if a policeman was to spot empty beer cans in your truck out in town he would NOT give you an open container ticket until you were actually inside the vehicle, why, because until you get in it, you don't possess those empty containers. I do it all the time, go duck hunting in the morning, dove in the afternoon and have both in my truck. I have been stopped numerous times and there has never been an issue.
If you hunt WITH your children today, you won't hunt FOR them tomorrow
Put "em in the woods and keep 'em off the streets
SO YOU WANT A PAT ON THE BACK OR WHAT
