Bald and golden eagles face many risks, including electrocutions, collisions, and lead poisoning. Minimizing the number of eagle deaths caused by any one source is essential to maintain the eagle populations in Alaska.
Hunters can reduce the occurrence of lead poisoning in eagles by using non-lead ammunition. For this effort, we are offering eligible hunters in Alaska one $20 voucher to offset the cost of one box of factory non-lead ammunition or one box of bullets for reloading used in common rifle calibers for big game hunting. Vouchers are limited.
The stores where vouchers can be used will be announced soon.
