Vancouver Gun Show Survey Results

We’ve compiled the results from the Vancouver, WA, Collector’s West Gun & Knife Show, where we had a booth offering non-lead ammo in exchange for lead ammo. The vast majority of show participants were eager to hear more about the health risks to wildlife from lead ammunition and appreciated the non-lead alternative we had to offer. Here are some of the results-Continue Reading

Ammo Exchange Updates

Our first non-lead ammunition exchange was a success. We owe a special thanks to the Collector’s West Gun & Knife show for donating the space at their Vancouver event. Additionally, Sportsman’s Warehouse was able to significantly reduce the cost of their ammo, allowing us to provide more boxes of the ever so popular upland-game steel-shot, to the gun show participants. We ran out of ammunition in 3 hours!








We are currently working to secure further donations so that we will be able to attend the upcoming shows at the Canby fairgrounds on 10/11 as well as the Portland Expo Center on 10/17. Don’t hesitate to send us an email with any questions-

Free Non-Lead Ammo Exchange

This weekend at the Clark County Fairgrounds, PDX Wildlife will be hosting a non-lead ammunition exchange. All you need to do is bring in a box of your ammunition that is lead based, fill out a quick survey, and grab a box of a non-lead alternative. We have reserved a table at the Collector’s West Gun & Knife Show… Just look for the large, green, PDX Wildlife banner.

Lead Ammo Flyer

Two things to keep in mind before making the trip up are:

1) At this time, we are only able to provide shotgun shells in 12 guage, 2 3/4, 6-7 steel shot, as a replacement to your leaded ammo. Perfect for upland game. Quantities are extremely limited and are expected to run out very quickly.

2) There is a fee to enter the show, which I believe is $8-10, sometimes there is a discount if you show your bi-mart card. The show begins at 9 am on Saturday. The address is: 17402 N.E. Delfel Road, Ridgefield, WA 98642
