Yeah i don't know details either... as far as "inert" I feel the "BIO" birds just wouldn't have a measurable toxicity.

I also expect that the coal tar would only affect fields where heavy shooting occurred.

I don't toss targets where the land will be cultivated or grazed. As far as the inert targets are concerned, I much prefer the ert ones.

The old ones posed a danger to porcine animals- with us being over run by them, maybe using regular ones to help poison those suckers isn't such a bad idea. The bio's destroy the grasses and such where they are.

I have shot clays at clubs where parts were cattle grazing areas as well as over rice paddies - in California no less - there was never any issues or worries

I'm not sure how they are doing it(keep forgetting to ask)but at my club somehow they're picking up and using the broken clays to put down on the S/C's course roads to help keep the dust down.Of course after you run over them a couple times they turn into a nice trail.

Pretty neat idea

We mixed the wads into the broken clays as well - worked for a while on the main road until we got it black-topped
