  one for all you f/g  rangers on here

just finally looked at the f/g mag , Grin  it was not a need to get to excited this year

is it legal to use  lead 28 gauge sub gauge on public land over water   eg harbor river , etc

or is it not and must be non toxic

i know its not on f/g reserves and conservation, doc  lands

According to Fish and Game's page on non-toxic shot, you are KIND OF good to go this year, but not next.

Can't use on DOC controlled land, for instance. (have a read on the F&G page)

Further edit: Actually, you already said this above. Sorry - working and internetting at the same time.

most of my quail and pheasant hunting is in river beds,
I wish I could get some "nice shot" here, bloody expensive but I suspect it would be good stuff

Be nice to get some of this stuff http://www.niceshotinc.com/
even though its pricy it would mean we can still use our favourite gauges and guns

  yes , nice, hevi, tungsten, or bismuth  28 bore next year will all be good for 28 bore  if you are like me and only  shoot  a few rounds compared to  the whole slab boys on an opening and then  as my area dictates  only the odd  shot 2 or 3  max 5  morning or evening any other time in season
