    Got my first kill Saturday Afternoon, small female. Used a Fox Pro Fury and Bushmaster .223. Rabbit in distress. Came in on the second stand, shoot her at 63 yards.

    Where does it say that in the regs? For deer hunting, a ten round mag is max. But for coyote hunting there is no max.

    I am pretty sure that the style of rifle has nothing to do with it. The law pertaining to deer hunting states:

    Illegal​
    A deer hunter shall not use or
    possess while deer hunting:
    • Firearms able to hold more
    than a total of 11 rounds (10 in​
    magazine and one in chamber)

    It has nothing to do with the style of gun, only how many rounds the gun or magazine will hold.

    For varmint hunting there is no such restriction.

    you cant hunt anything in kentucky with buckshot....
    and there is no restriction on mags when hunting for coyote, 30 round mags for ar-15s are just fine.
