We are having a problem with otters and beaver and every other creature getting into crawfish traps. If anyone is interested in coming trapping hunting r anything else we would greatly appreciate it. The area is south of kinder. Were catching some already just don't have enough time and traps to do it effectively. They are so plentiful they will flip over 3/4 of traps a night. If u are interested u can contact me at danielkibodeaux@gmail.com. The pond is a friends pond but I am trying to help him get ride of them and he is open to anything. Also and advise would be greatly appreciated. Who knows he may work something out to help u, it would be up to him. He has several hundred acres and their are several famers that would Jump at opportunity for someone to help them to. I know areas are getting hard to find and there are ALOT of acreage available to trap on. Thanks for any help u can give us

The problem is there is no money in furs. My son trapped this year and was only getting $20 for prime otter!? Why bother? You will likely have to hire a nucience trapper to handle the problem.

I don't know where your son was selling, but I was told my uncle sold his otters for $100 each.

If Louisiana Otter pelts were bringing $100 bucks a pop, this post would not exist. No one would have an otter problem.

I know for a fact that last year the price was $80 and this year was supposed to be better. Year before the otter hide brought in $100-$125 depending on when they were sold. Otters, fox and bobcat were the top price hides.

I would think the farther north you are the thicker the pelt. Am I correct?

Better Check your numbers...
I found a price list for furs for 2014 that was just updated.... this is for furs up north and they say the price of Southern furs were normally less....
