Let mr know when you find a place/prey to hunt. I'll happily join you as I'm new to Oregon and keen to get out there myself.

There seem to be plenty of Nutria where I live and I know you can shoot them although eating them might be a challenge for some

Nutria is good and good for you. Bon Appetit. They're strictly vegetarians, their diet being 99% root systems of plants.

Shoot, I scrape a nutria up off the side of the road every now and then if it's fresh.

After you take your hunter safety course you will know what is in season.
