Not sure what the law allows out there in Lost Wages but we were restricted to three with a plug.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

"Hunting on Wildlife Management Areas
Non-toxic shot must be used for all species
when hunting on Wildlife Management Areas (NAC
503.183).
The use or possession of shells for a shotgun
containing shot that is toxic, or larger than
standard-sized T is prohibited on the Overton,
Key Pittman, W.E. Kirch, Scripps, Mason Valley,
Fernley, Alkali Lake, Humboldt, Steptoe Valley and
Franklin Lake Wildlife Management Areas (NAC
504.135).
The use of shotguns capable of holding
more than three shells is prohibited on all wildlife
management areas unless it has been plugged
with a one-piece filler, incapable of removal without
disassembling the gun, so its total capacity does
not exceed three shells. (NAC 504.135)"

This is a really strange law, as you can make custom short loads of say 2" and load up with 4 shots.

Here in Utah only migratory birds require a plug in the shotgun.

Pheasants and chuckers you can use all you can fit.

Only other restriction is no fully automatic.

Close, but not quite 100% accurate. If you are hunting on a refuge, you are restricted the same as for waterfowl. But, since Utah doesn't have any wild pheasants anymore, it doesn't really matter anyway, does it? (all right, I admit there are a few wild birds left but not many). There is also a restriction on shot size can be used on upland game as well, limited to sizes 2-8 and minimum 1/2oz loads and 10ga or smaller.

I believe on the pheasant farms shot type and shell capacity is basically up to the operator of that farm.

I never understood the shotgun magazine capacity restrictions. Why limit a shotgun to 3 rounds? Most only hold 4 anyway.

Most hold 4+1. Its to give the bird a sporting chance. If you cant get a bird in 3 blasts, you're probably doing something wrong. 5 is just ridiculous.
