    Questions about shotgun shell wads. We sometimes hunt my pond at my land and by the end of the season it is covered in wads, makes the pond and surrounding area look nasty as they wash up on the shores and stuff… is there any way to go about this problem??

    We used to pick them up off the trap range, wash and re-use them. Be surprised how fast you can learn to tell a 12 from a 16, or a 1 1/8 oz. from a 1 oz.

      Until they come up with a biodegradable wading or one that is consumed int he firing, I think about the only thing you can do is pick them up as you can.

          I'll bet someone could come up with a better solution to this problem. Picking up empties certainly isn't hard to do, and I have picked wads when I see them, but we won't find them all and there should be a better way.

              JMO~ You could use a Pool Net to fish out the wads in your pond.

                They make biodegradable wads if you reload.
