I know that when shooting certain types of game, there is a limit to how many shells can be in the shotgun. But what is the limit for HD? I am picking up a Mossberg 500 Field/Security combo tonight that I intend primarily for HD. I noticed an 8 shell mag tube on Brownells (I think). Would that be legal to put on my 500?

no limit to the size of your pump shotgun magazine as long as you are not hunting IIRC.

It looks like the limit on tube-fed magazines is 10 rounds unless it it is for a lever-action firearm, or a .22.

(25) As used in this section, "large-capacity magazine" means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of the following:
(B) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
(C) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm.

Most of those Mossbergs usally come with 8 round tubes,and 2 barrels. If you plan on hunting install a dowell to limit the capacity to 3 rounds.

Clarification: 2 rounds in the tube and 1 in the chamber... IIRC

The Mossberg combo (as sold at places like Big 5) already includes a magazine limiter-- specifically, a wooden dowel with a couple of rubber washers to keep it from rattling around too much.

You will not be able to easily increase the magazine capacity because the barrel retaining bolt screws directly into the front of the mag tube. Unmodified, the Mossberg 500 (standard/combo version, not "security" models) has a maximum capacity of 5+1.

There is no limit on how many rounds can be in the shotgun when hunting Harley Davidson riders.
There is a game possession limit though.
You can have no more than 3 doctors/lawyers or 1 hells angel in your possession at any time.

Or in a hunting area in hunting season. The burden of proof that you were NOT hunting is on you if you get caught.
