We have been spending quite a lot of time at our camp since the dismal duck hunting season. Between fishing, trapping, nutria control program, and frogging we have been quite busy.

Enjoy

Nutria
So what all are you doing with the nutria?
Reply
Meat
We keep some for table fare. Most are disposed as per the nutria control program regulations. Not much of a market for the meat. It is also difficult to deal with the meat in a sanitary manner at the camp.

That's cool . You might be able to find a alligator farm to take the carcasses off your hands , if its worth your while .

When I was a kid my dad used to make me boil the nutria and feed them to my dogs .

What kind of liscence do you have to have to sell the tails , and who buys them ?

License
To participate in the coastwide nutria control program you will need to either own or lease property. The nutria must be taken on that property only. This s a link to the program rules.

In Louisiana it is illegal to possess nutria tails without the license.
A contractor for the state buys at different locations during the season.

License
I will never argue there are too many taxes and regulations set forth by our government.

There are four basic scenarios you can kill nutria.

First one requires a regular small game licence.

'On WMAs and private property, nutria may
be taken recreationally by licensed hunters
from Sept. 1 - Feb. 29, during legal shooting
hours by any legal hunting method with
a daily limit of five, EXCEPT nutria may
be taken on Atchafalaya Delta, Salvador/
Timken, Pointe Aux Chenes, and Pass a
Loutre WMAs from Sept. 1 to March 31.
When taken with a shotgun, steel shot must
be used. On WMAs during waterfowl seasons,
nutria may be taken only by the use of
shotguns with shot not larger than F steel;
during gun deer seasons on WMAs, anyone
taking nutria must display 400 square inches
of “Hunter Orange” and wear a “Hunter
Orange” cap or hat. Recreational nutria
hunters must remove each nutria carcass in
whole condition from the hunting area,
EXCEPT that nutria may be gutted.
Possession of detached nutria parts,
including nutria tails, by recreational hunters
is illegal. Nutria harvested recreationally
may not be pelted nor may such nutria
or any nutria parts from recreationally
taken nutria be sold, including the tail.
Trespassing upon private property for the
purpose of taking nutria or other fur bearing
animals is punishable by fines and
possible jail time (R.S. 56.265). The
Coastwide Nutria Control Program is a
separate program and is in no way related
to the nutria recreational season. For questions
on the Coastwide Nutria Control
Program call the New Iberia office: 337-
373-0032.'

The second method is during trapping season which requires a trapping license which must be purchased.

The third method is the Coastwide Nutria Control Program. You have to possess a trapping license to participate but IIRC the program is free. You are actually paid for the tails by the state.

The fourth method would be under nusiance animals:

'Landowners or their designees may remove
beaver and nutria causing damage to their
property without a special permit. Water set
traps and firearms may be used to remove
beaver; nutria may be removed by any
means (see Nighttime Take of Nuisance
Animals and Outlaw Quadrupeds). Any nuisance
beaver or nutria trapped or shot outside
open trapping season cannot be pelted
or sold. A trapping license is required to sell
or pelt nuisance beavers or nutria taken during
open trapping season.'

Agree with ButtaB that it tastes alot like rabbit. We put the young ones on the pit. The bigger ones we normally debone for sausage.
