Is wind energy bad for waterfowl? It's something we've discussed here before, and a North Dakota study by Ducks Unlimited and the United States Fish & Wildlife Service in North Dakota found that when wind farms are placed on wetlands, breeding pairs of ducks are reduced by an average of 21 percent.
One of the concerns regarding wind farms back before they became a fixture on the Midwest landscape was their potential effect on animal populations,especially birds. There have been some incidents that seem to validatethisapprehension. Wind turbines have killed an average of 67 golden eagles per year in the San Francisco Bay area. (Perhaps that's a stat to tuck away for the next time a greeny suggests lead ammo isharming birds of prey.)
The all-new .350 Legend is designed specifically for hunters to deliver massive downrange energy transfer with improved penetration from a modern straight-walled cartridge, and boasts more muzzle energy than the .30-30 Win., .300 BLK and .223 Rem.
Winchester has introduced their new Xtended Range Bismuth shotshells in 3-inch 12-gauge, loaded with 1 5/8 ounces of No. 5 Bismuth shot, at a muzzle velocity of 1,200 fps.
