    The 6 round limit for hunting with a semi-auto has 2 exceptions. Here they are.

    #1- Rimfire firearms.
    #2- Semi-auto handguns with a barrel length of less than 8 inches.
    Here's a link to the DEC regulations for big game hunting:

    If your barrel length is less than 8 inches, yes. If you have the longer barrel, no. DEC regs, look under amnner of taking.
