Last season was my first hunting deer in Indiana. I have a friend who hunts Switzerland County and I hope to make many more fall trips to that really nice area. It looks like a new regulation has already been passed and is to be implemented in 2012 (I think). It will allow a longer case to be used. The new reg will allow cases up to 1.8" in length in calibers of .35 or larger for rifles. The regs for shooting a rifle during gun season are a bit odd, but they are what they are...I was born and raised in Indiana, and even when I got off active duty in 1979 you had to use shotguns with slugs or black power rifles. Its great that you can now use 44mag rifles. I always thought it was strange that those in Ill. could use rifles and we couldn't.
