Man, I had a FIELD of Nutria the other day. I was out on the ole John

Deere, mowing the eastern two, and every time I'd make a pass through

the waist high grass, rodents were running. I tried chasing a few

down, but they were faster (just barely) than the tractor. I DID hear

a few CHA-THUNKs as I was mowing and the Bearded Guy assured me that I

was indeed a vicious deadly killer.

 

I was just glad that I was upwind...I really didn't want Nutria chunks

flying back at me.

NutriaSleet?

awwwk

Sound like you are wasting much potential amusement there. Try to find

an old Thompson-Center pistol chambered for a .410 shotshell. They're

expensive new, but sometimes you can pick up a rusty one at a gun show

for cheap. They're great for snap shots at rats while mowing and

bushhogging and such. Just be careful about hitting bumps or being

drunk when you are doing so because the guy down the the road wasn't

and blew the top of his radiator off, but he was using a .357, I

think, and never hit any rats anyway. Would be damn near impossible.

Nutria ain't exactly rat. Is a rodent right enough, but not exactly a

rat. Lots bigger and meatier. Haven't eaten them or any four legged

beaver either. I've eaten rats. Brown ones, anyways, back when I was

doing the live offa the land number. They taste like squirrel and are

a little easier to skin. If you have a few people and a big meadow you

can dig a bottle pit and have a field rat roundup (walk around the

field in decreasing circles). Getting 'em outa the pit is the fun

part. We used one barbed tine or whatever you call it off of a frog

gig lashed to a green maple stick, Poke Poke SQUEAL...yank... haw look

at them legs GO!...hey thass cruel, smush his head or something. Shit,

hold it still I'll do it! damn!...and so on. Sticking your hand in the

pit is a bad idea, cause things besides rats will run in there

(scorpions, sometimes snakes, but I always check with a flashlight for

them cause I don't want to hurt any reptiles) and the rats themselves

will bite pretty good, too. Then you gut 'em, skin 'em, shish-kaboob

'em and cook over the fire. Never tried the big grey and black rats,

but I would imagine they wouldn't taste as good, as they aren't very

picky eaters. Coon and possum aren't either and they are sorta nasty

and greasy and smell bad while they are cooking, so I won't eat them

anymore or dump rats at all unless I have to for real. In the

meantime I will continue to feel free to use ammo that don't leave

much more than soup fixin's and not bother to make soup out of it. Not

the kind that is for eating, anyways.
