Please help this well meaning fool.

I have an otter who has wiped out the trout fishing in a stream where I own some land. The fishing has been great until this guy moved in, now it’s dead. I know NOTHING about trapping. I have agreed to try and remove him unharmed to avoid the hot tong and cold shoulder from the wife but my attempts with the have-a-heart trap have only yielded possum. Can someone please give me some advice?

Thanks!

Howdy Chippy, welcome to the forums! The first thing I need to know is where you are located so we can check out the local laws regarding otter trapping. Some states allow otter trapping, others only by permit and some states not at all.

Here are the Georgia Trapping Regulations. The way it reads I am not quite sure if it is legal to trap nuisance otters in Georgia. I suggest you call the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and pose the question to them. They will probably have resources available or names of Animal Damage Control trappers that could come out and remove the critters for you.

That being said, there was a thread over on Trapperman a while ago about this very subject. You can find it here-- How do you catch otters in cage traps?

Good luck with the otters, I know how much damage they can do... :roll:
