Is their a limit on the amount of rounds one can have in a semi-automatic gun for deer season?


If their is, do we need a chopped magazine?

In florida there is a 5 TOTAL round limit for semi auto loader rifles and the Mag can be a hundred round original so long as it is plugged under the follower to limit the count to 4 in the mag one in the pipe but mitt-she-cans laws may be different...

In Michigan, in the rifle zones (1 and 2), you may only use a gun that will hold 5 rounds in an autoloader action. Your question does not specify what kind of a firarm you are refering to. For an M1 Garand or an AK stype weapon, there are 5 round clips, or in the case of an AK, a 5 round magazine that can be purchased. But, specific answers relative to your gun can be provided if you tell us what gun you are refering to.

My Colt AR15 came with a 5-round mag. included in the box. If your AR did not, they are available.

Yes in Michigan there is. It states: It is unlawful to hunt with a semi-automatic shotgun ot semi-automatic rifle that can hold more than six shells in the barrel and magazine combinded unless it is a .22 caliber rimfire. Fully automatic firearms are illegal. All shotguns used for migratory game birds ( including woodcock ) must be plugged so the total capacity of the shotgun does not excedd three shells.
This is for all hunting in Michigan, and right out of there Hunting and Trapping Guide. Hope it helps.
