    Here in Texas, it's perfectly legal to hunt with semi automatic rifles. As far as I know, I have never heard of a limit on capacity. I've never seen someone hunt with something larger than a 20-30 round magazine though. Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there.

    WV is legal, but think there is a 5rd capacity limit.

    I have a question. If your going to hunt with an AK and can only have 5 round capacity, can you use a standard 30 round magazine and fashion a device to limit 5 rounds in that magazine (sort of like the mag limiter in a shotgun - "dowel rod")?

    Hawk,
    I really dont know..


    I did find this on their site. Appears a 5rnd isn't necessary. Its been 3-4 years since I hunted down there.

    * a muzzleloader of less than .38 caliber during the muzzleloader deer season.
    * both a gun and a bow, or with a gun and any arrows, except that persons having a concealed weapons permit may carry a concealed handgun for self-defense only.
    * a crossbow, except for the holder of a Class Y permit during designated archery seasons.Crossbows must have:

    My opinion If I had a deer of a lifetime in front of me the last gun I would want in my hand is an ak.
