Iíve tried it..once.  Itís not the worst thing ever, but I could never get what I was eating, out of my mind. I actually get paid a bounty for them, usually make enough in a year to buy a new gun! We killed another 12 yesterday, this cold weather brings them out!

I’ve tried it..once.  It’s not the worst thing ever, but I could never get what I was eating, out of my mind. I actually get paid a bounty for them, usually make enough in a year to buy a new gun! We killed another 12 yesterday, this cold weather brings them out!

This may be a dumb question but are you killing them specifically on the Columbia or are they all over the place?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Who is paying the bounty?

The diking district pays the bounty, on puget island. Although they are everywhere around here. Diking district wants them controlled, they do pretty good damage with their holes. Turned in 92 tails today from the last couple months.

I sent some dried nutria hides to USA Fox a few years ago and had them tanned and "plucked and sheared".  The first year they came back looking beautiful like gray velvet.  The next year I sent a couple again and they looked rough and uneven and the guard hairs were still there and sheared.  I should have complained, but I was busy.  I guess the guy they had doing "plucked and sheared" didn't know what he was doing.

Nutria were all over the place in Louisiana when I lived there. People won't eat them despite tasting pretty good (all 2nd hand knowledge). People can't seem to get past the rat aspect of them...

I've pulled my previous lab out of ponds when I saw one that was about her size. Looked like a humongous beaver and they have a temper.

We kill a lot during duck season down in SW Wa. I didn't know about the bounty, I'll have to keep that in mind in the future.
