    Looking for list by State of hunting gun restrictions for large game (elk, deer,etc) for caliber (minimum/maximum), gun weight, etc. When I was looking at Idaho a few years ago I recall a maximum gun weight. Guessing the DNR was trying to eliminate mountain to mountain shooting somewhat.
    Thanks

    16 pounds is too much for this old fart. More like 7 pounds......:D

    I going to get an Illinois non resident antlered/anterless permit for 2012. 300 bucks and handgun, muzzleloader or bow. Just like Ohio, antiquated.

    I don't mean to highjack this thread but I'm just not sure why there is a limit as to how much your gun weighs!! Can someone clue me into why that is? I don't know how someone can tell me I can't use my 20# rifle to hunt with, it's my back that has to lug it around!! Not that I do carry it very far right now I just would like to know why that's all!! As you can see I'm from the east so hunting out west is only a dream right now. Please fill me in!!

    Regs vary with different states, that is how it is. ID, use to have a 65% let off minimum for compound bow, AK had a min. 400 grain arrow. I am not up on current.
