My state has no state limits (only Fed.gov ones) From the Brady Camp: Although it is illegal in every state to hunt animals with more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and although semiautomatic assault weapons are useless for recreational activities,.. CRC

3 in shotguns, you could put a cmag on your rifle though, they don't care.

5 round magazine for a centerfire semi-auto rifle. As for shotguns you can bring a USAS-12 with a 20 round drum. I just go into Alabama and can use my 30 round AR mags and 20 round FAL mags for hunting.

For waterfowl, 3 shells. Anything else, you are only limited by your strength. I'm tempted to get a Shrike upper, and take a 200 rnd belt deer hunting. I can jsut imagine the comments.

As many as you can fit in the mag for everything except waterfowl.

Its 5 in Michigan for rifles, 3 for shotguning for birds, but of deer season you can put five in your shotgun. Rimfire has no limit. Pistol is 10 but it used to be 15.

So, other than LI, using either my my AR-10 or my M4 would be fine, so long as I have just 5 round mags on me. edited to add: _________________________________________ [img]http://www.pre-ban.com/forums/ranks/usmc-gsgt.gif[/img][img]http://www.pre-ban.com/forums/images/avatars/471897163ec56dcf95bbe.jpg[/img]

Slightly off topic, but:

10 rounds max in every state? Either that's wrong, or I've been hunting with 20 more than I should be.

No, the statement is corret, IF using a post-9/94 manufactured (post-ban) magazine which cannot be more than 10 ruonds for only civilians. They will twist the wording to make it sound illegal, like leaving out information... Just like post-86 machines guns are illegal (in most cases), they will say that machine guns are illegal, even though they are not....

In Texas it's any amount goes, unless you are hunting Migratory Game birds, which the Fed's make the rules on. 3 rounds in the gun when hunting Migratory game birds. Although I do think they had an UN plugged shotgun season on geese this year. Oh, and shotguns only on Migratory game birds. Quail are ok to pop with your .22
