7MM Magnum is a popular hunting rifle up here too.

I work with a guy that hunts with an SKS. Only problem with a gun like that is the range on it isn't as good as something like a 30-06, 30-30 or a 7MM. I thought their effective range was within 400 yards, but I could be wrong on that one. I know here if you hunt with a gun like that, I'm not sure if it's defined as an assault weapon, you can only have 5 rounds in the magazine at a time. They have some pretty tight laws on the books up here for what you can't and can have.

High rates are a product of millions of uninsured (and mostly unlicensed) drivers. Many are not legally here in the first place and think "get out and run away" is an insurance policy. I have heard that about 1/3 of all cars on the road in Texas are uninsured. The other 2/3's of us pick up the tab for the others.

Are there any states left anymore where insurance coverage is NOT mandated? You think hitting a deer in a car is bad, try it on a motorcycle....I never rode at night when I lived downstate because of the high deer populations. Where I am now is mostly farm land, and oddly enough there are less deer/car collisions because of the availability of food, which is good considering the average doe weighs well over 100 lbs.

You remember the lie that was told us here in Texas that when everyone was required to have insurance that they would go down, guess what, they went up, just like that tempory sales tax increase that turned out to be permanent.

Several years ago, I was stopped at a red light and I was hit from the rear, was hit so hard, I was knocked across the street, totaled out the ststion wagon, well I went back to the car that hit me and was not in the best of moods, and I asked if she was ok, she then said NO SAVY ENGLISH, well that really made my day, then to top it off, she had no insurance or drivers license, so MY insurance picked up the whole tab for the car I had.Did they do any thing to her, no, just gave her a ticket, insurance said she couldn't be found, probably went back to Mexico.

I cannot figure out the MS laws on rifle capacity or if there are any (don't see it addressed). I also wonder about sidearm capacity; every deerhunter i know carries a pistol in case of hogs, most use semi-autos.

Anybody got a better link than MS's department of wildlife site for this type of question?

Default Rifle hunting Minnesota and Nebraska

Minnesota does allow deer, moose and I think bear hunting in the upper half of the state using center fire rifles. Not sure of the boundary line.

Nebraska allows center fire hunting state wide.

I don't think there's a limit on magazine capacity. You can check on the MDWFP forum to be sure tho Mississippi Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks - Forums I usually just carry three rounds, never needed more than two. You can't carry a pistol as a sidearm but you can hunt with one as your only weapon.
Antler restrictions and bag limits changed this year. MDWFP decided that the four points or better system we've been using wasn't saving enough yearlings. This year in most of the state the spread has to be at least ten inches or one main beam has to be 13 inches. West of I55 and north of I20 spread has to be 12 inches or main beam length of 15 inches. Bag limit is one buck per day not to exceed three per license year and one doe per day not to exceed five per license year.
