    Here the shotgun plug is only for migratory birds. Native - quail or turkey - can be as much as you can cram in the gun. Ducks and dove is three-max.

    There's a 5-round max on centerfire semi-auto deer rifles. My 24" 44/40 lever with a 14-round capacity is fine, but M1 Carbine is 5-round max. Used to be that was for deer and bear, but I don't think you can hunt bear here anymore, to that would be just for deer. Pig doesn't have (to my knowledge) any magazine limits.

    In Iowa we can only use centerfire rifles of at least .24 caliber in the southern two tiers of counties during the January antlerless season. otherwise it's shotgun or muzzle loader only.

    Alabama it is any centerfire caliber using mushrooming ammunition. Each county has different regulations for buckshot though.

    In Ohio it's shotgun (3 round max) this week and weekend in mid December, black powder is 4 days in early January and bow or crossbow late September to early February. Using a rifle is a big fine and loss of hunting privileges. If you want to wast a lot of time http://www.ohiodnr.com/wildlife/dow/regulations/hunting_deer.aspx
    I'd stack Ohios hunting regs against any state for restrictions

    I have to disagree with Dog on this one. You must not do any bow hunting cause a good sharp broadhead can deal death very quickly and not make much noise. It makes a heck of a hole also.
