Toxic Ammo Regulation By State. Again, federal law requires hunters to use non-toxic ammo for harvesting ducks, geese, swans, and coots on all the lands and waters of the United States.I noticed a few mentioning swan hunting with the 10 which should work wonderfully. I’ve never hunted swans and I don’t think I am anywhere near their flyway but out of curiosity do you have to use steel shot?
We had 3 swans using a duck pond near home several years ago. No season though. But it was nice to have them around. They are large, kind of like a Volkswagen with wings.
What I always found odd is that we could go to the salt marsh and shoot marsh hens with lead. But hunting ducks in the same area required non toxic.
