In Texas Nutria are considered fur bearing animals. They can only be taken by permission from the property owner or you are the property owners agent.
They are taken while causing loss or damage to agricultural crops, livestock,
poultry, or personal property.

In Texas now you must also make sure the bullet doesnt cross property lines
unless you own both pieces of property or have permission from the property owner.
Have a nice day at the range

squirrel = limb rat
deer = hooved forest rat
rabbit = brush rat

they all taste good, so I would assume nutria does too. Nutria - the other white rat meat.

Recently in Maryland. Surprised to read in their state hunting pamphlet that year round hunting with no limit on Nutria allowed. Thought nutria a Gulf Coast problem.

I have been on the road working and letting my nutria haunts rest so they can become stupid and less wary again.
Yes, I live in P-town aka Pork-Land where the Oregon tax dollars go.

Sorry I can help you about the La Grand area but as I mentioned on an earlier post you might want to check with Duck unlimited I know they do not like them in Duck habitats. ODFW might be able to help but my money is on DU. Check out and Google Nutria you’ll get a quite a few hits and you can learn about their preferred habitat and habits. Then you’ll at least know there they might be and what to look for.

I have seen Nutria as far south as Salem and east to Troutdale but I do not know if they have made it to the East side yet. I am sure they will. The rats are adaptive and its only a mater of time some PILLOW BITING PETA MEMBER take a couple home and releases them on the east side bacause thier adorable. :barf: For all I know they may already be there.

As for eating nutria I have never had the pleasure I leave them for the Hawks and the other scavengers.
