Default Question on rabbit hunting gun rules

I've always use a plug in my shotgun when hunting rabbits, as I thought you had to. I noticed the ODNR site says you need to use a plug for doves and waterfowl, and I guess I asssumed it was the same for rabbit and squirrel.

I can legally hunt rabbit with a shotgun that holds more than three rounds, right?

Don't take this the wrong way but where do you hunt that you can get more than 3 shots at a rabbit at one time? In the cover I hunt I'm lucky if I can get 2.

That is where I noticed the 3 shell limit omission. I also found out you can hunt grouse and pheasant with a rifle. I found that interesting.
