I looked in the book and it looks to me like you do not need to plug your shotgun to three shells when hunting furbearers. Is that correct?

Thanks

Wrong ...

Sec. 2308. Unlawful devices and methods.
(a) General rule.--Except as otherwise provided in this title, it is unlawful for any person to hunt or aid, abet, assist or conspire to hunt any game or wildlife through the use of:

(4) A semiautomatic shotgun or magazine shotgun for hunting or taking small game, furbearers, turkey or unprotected birds unless the shotgun is plugged to a two-shell capacity in the magazine.

Thanks plinker, I just read the furbearer section and they don't mention it there. They probably should though.

That restriction only applies to certain wildlife, and does NOT apply to deer.

Thanks, not a Pred. hunter. But was asked it there was a restrcition last weekend and did not know the answer.

Too bad , seems like 00 buckshot would be a great yote load.
