    I just found a large Nutria colony on a small island in the middle of one of the lakes on our property.

    I am so lucky......no woodchucks in this part of the country.....but we have Nutrias!

    Hi Lony,

    We have Coypu on one of the farms I have shooting permission on. Like a giant rat great to stalk and shoot. I believe they escaped from a fur farm in the 70s

    Davy these little fellas, much like some women I know, love dikes. They burrow in and damage them.

    As I eat what I shoot these guys are pushing the limits of my taste buds.

    They're destructive varmints. I have no problem shooting something that I'm not going to eat if it's destroying property. They have sharp pointy teeth for tearing things up.

    Lon, can I swing by and shoot a few of them? I'll bring some brew, of your choice for afterwards for incentive. And I won't bat an eye at your wife, I swear. :)

    Just went out to the pond on a Gator. When you drive out on to the island, the noise from the Gator makes them jump in the water and swim away. There were at least ten of them.

    Gonna try to find time this afternoon to take out the .17 and pop them in the head as they're swimming away at about 40 or 50 yards.

    Should be much fun!
