Anyone know if there is a magazine limit for deer hunting with a shotgun?

From the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife website -
"Legal firearms for hunting: Handguns, rifles and shotguns not larger than 10-gauge are legal for hunting in Maine, except as follows: Automatic firearms are illegal. Auto-loading firearms are illegal if they hold more than 6 cartridges (does not apply to .22 caliber rimfire guns or to auto-loading pistols with barrel less than 8 inches.)"

"6 cartridges" means 1 in the chamber and 5 in the magazine (tube).

If your shotgun is a pump, there's no limit for deer hunting. There's a 3 round limit on all shotguns if you hunt migratory birds.
