I am sorry, as I am sure this is not a new question. I just can't find an official link to the answer. I have a friend that bought a AR-15 .223 and wants to take it deer hunting. I was under the impression that .243 is the smallest caliber to deer hunt with in Tennessee. Is the .223 legal for Tennessee whitetail, and if so in the AR-15 model? Is there a magazine limit for the AR-15 if so? If it is legal, when did this change? I moved to FL for about 10 years and am back in TN now, so I am thinking it maybe changed recently? Anyone have a link for this info? Thanks.

I always laugh at people who claim a 223 is not big enough for deer. All u have to ask them how much is the avg weight of a Deer is and the avg weight of a person. Then ask what the cal of the common rifle for combat. That is when they get the dumb look and you want to just say here is you sign.

Now if I was in bear country and I had one I wold rather have the ar with the largest mag I had.
