At the Camp

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.

Some nutria for the camp

Nutria, bass, frog legs, deer backstrap

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.

Cool

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.

http://www.nutria.com/site10.php

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.
