Has the EPA lost its collective mind??
There are varing levels of lead already in the environment. It has been there since the earth formed.
Here is a U.S. Government global map that shows deposits of lead with concentrations high enough for the lead to be commercially mined. There are many times more deposits with lesser assays that are not indicated.

Where does the EPA think the lead comes from that hunters and fishermen are putting back into the environment??
The EPA can find better ways to use their resources to help the environment and to justify their existance than this lead issue.
Just the humble opinon of this retired Mining Research Chemist.
