I've heard the same thing, Scotty .... that they eat pretty good. Probably a whole like the meat in a groundhog, and cooked right that's actually pretty darn good.

Runner, what are you packin, and how do you find them?

The nutria all over the swamps and marsh...We just ride around and find them. They bunch up in colonies and aren't hard to kill. They can't run really fast. They will dive under in bayous and lakes, but soon pop up for air...
We hunt them with 22 rifles. I use a Ruger 10/22 with 30 round clips. It has a nice 3X9 BSA scope. Its deadly on nutria.

This is prime nutria country..Those little ponds are all over the marsh. Probably get 5-6 out of each one of them.
Come back the next day and its re-stocked, waitin on you. Only thing is you better have a boat that will run dry all day long. Good place to break a new motor in for sure. It will get a work out.

Maybe we need to seek a few breeding pairs back in here. Maybe we can get a bounty established in a short time!

Thinking ahead here. Will a Nutria Rat grow its tail back if its cut off a certain way? Might be beneficial to trap, cut and release if so. Hey we can be green too. Recycling for fun and profit!

I can see the redneck INFOMERCIALS NOW !

Yes, you can hunt them at night in the month of March only.
They are still plenty out there. Nutria breed year round and are extremely prolific. Males reach sexual maturity between 4 and 9 months, whereas, females reach sexual maturity between 3 and 9 months. Sexual maturity may vary with habitat quality. With a gestation period of only 130 days, in one year, an adult nutria can produce two litters and be pregnant for a third. The number of young in a litter ranges from 1-13 with an average of 4.5 young. Females can breed within a day of having a litter. Litter size can vary with age of female, habitat quality and time of year. The young nutria at birth are fully furred and the eyes are open. Newborn nutria feed on vegetation within hours and will nurse for 7-8 weeks.

I really don't think the tails grow back.
As for the catch and release, we have plenty and the goal is to thin them out. They are tearing up the marsh. They destroy the root system and grasses. We lose several square miles of marsh every year from there damage.

Silly me, I should have known. Just thinking of a way to make them a resource instead of a nuisance. Once thinned out the bounty will go away right? Maybe just thin them enough so theres always a little problem with them ;)
