Non-Lead Shooting Demo


If you have questions about the validity of claims of negative effects of lead on wildlife, the performance of non-lead ammunition in your firearms, or the lethality of non-lead ammo, then you need to attend this event!

Hellgate Hunters and Anglers in joining up with Montana Wildlife Federation, National Wildlife Federation and Artemis Sportswomen to host a unique shooting event where you can learn firsthand the ballistics and capabilities of non-lead, copper ammo.  As sportsmen it's our responsibility make an informed decision on this issue and contribute to our wildlife conservation and hunting heritage. 

The main event is May 18th from 9am - noon  and will be a half day at the Deer Creek shooting range testing the performance, ballistics, and capabilities of non-lead rifle and shotgun ammunition--yes there will be ballistic gel... A $15 fee and RSVP is required to help cover expenses for the range day and is limited to 50 participants so don’t wait, sign up soon. Fee includes a non-lead hunting t-shirt from Hunt 2 Eat  (see below) and an entry into a drawing for a *cow elk hunt on MPG Ranch, to be drawn at the range on May 18 (must be present to win).  In addition, it includes a "Living Lightly" membership to Hellgate Hunters and Anglers.  

If you can't make the Saturday event, stop by North Side Kettlehouse on Friday, May 17th,  for an evening of beverages, socialization, and information. There will be representatives from the National Wildlife Federation, the North American Non-Lead Partnership, and the MPG Ranch on hand to have discussions,  and debates about non-lead options while hunting.


Space is limited, buy your tickets below!



*The winner can bring an additional person to hunt. The hunt would take place August 15-September 1 or after December 15. Hunters will be accompanied by at least one employee from MPG Ranch and must use non-lead ammunition. Lodging will not be provided and hunters will need to purchase a hunting license and the appropriate tag prior the hunt and before the general rifle season.
