Second Season Underway for Limited River Otter Trapping
Nov 17, 2022 07:28 ET

Nebraska’s limited river otter harvest season opened Nov. 1, providing those with a valid fur harvest permit an opportunity to trap one otter per season.

The season closes Feb. 28, 2023, or three days after the 125th otter has been harvested in the state, whichever comes first.
