Those season dates only apply to people who are trapping nutria to sell the pelts. Louisiana has an open nuisance season year round . You just cant hunt with lights or sell the pelts. Thats the Regulation.

yall are laughing but i guided a nutria hunt in feb for doug's hunting lodge. when the owner called me and told me he needed me the next morning for a nutria hunt i thought he lost his mind but i had som guys from penn. and they had a great time. as far as a season i dunno but we talked to wlf and they said they didnt need a trappers license just a regualr one. dunno about a season.
