Here we have a 3-round limit for any shotgun hunting, deer, turkey, duck, quail, whatever.

I've downloaded some of the poop sheets from ID, but can't find the rules on this.

Anyone from ID?

Thanks for any info.

2 rounds in the magazine and it must be plugged so as not to accept more.

My Idaho upland game regulations for 2007-2008 say that shotguns do not need to be plugged.

My Idaho 2006-2007 turkey regulations do not discuss capacity. (at least not that I can find), and only mentions shell length not to exceed 3.5"

My 2007 big game regulations also do not discuss capacity, only shot size and overall weight of gun.

I think they need to be plugged for ducks. 2 in the mag + 1 in the chamber.

Federal regulations stipulate no more than three rounds total for migratory birds, nationwide.

For non-migratory birds, the capacity is a state-law affair.

Escorted the next door son of a friend that works nights to Hunter Education earlier this year, sat in on all the classes, was informed repeatedly and it was on the exam. 2 rounds in magazine and plugged to prevent more. This class was administered out of the Idaho Region 6 office of IF&G.
