Re: Magazine Capacity For Rifle Hunting In Illinois?
Illinois is shotgun only for deer. You can still hunt coyotes, varmints, etc. with a rifle. To the best of my knowledge, there is no limit on mag capacity for hunting those species with a rifle. I still coyote hunt with a 20 round mag in my AR. my squirrel rifle is a tube fed .22, and it holds like 16 or so. If you are hunting coyotes with a shotgun, you can have as many rounds in it as you like. If you're hunting anything else with a shotgun, you gotta have it limited to 2+1. Not sure why, but that's just how it is. Illinois is a strange state with some strange hunting rules. Of course, what I just said here is subject to verification. Rules change a lot, so Make sure you read the hunting/trapping digest before you head out there!
