SC. No trappers In that state well not any that want to work at catching beaver In numbers. LOL
Otter are just another nuisance type critter down there. Caught 82 In 2 months with out really trying. Once your known as a beaver trapper you won't be able to find any peace from the land owners.

NC does fairly well. There were two trappers, one from Indiana and one from Minnesota who came down here to trap otters for two weeks. Those two caught 52 otters and 216 beavers (In otter traps) during those two weeks. One was AndyS and the other was the fella who makes the mink pans up there in MN. Dang, I can't remember his name right off.

Most all Southeastern states have a very good otter population with no limits on catches.

Missippi has a good number of both. Never saw a local trapper when I was there.

Those southern swamps may have lots of beaver and otter, but they also have lots of venomous snakes!

In the15 years I trapped In SC and NC I only encountered 2 or 3 snakes In my travels. Jan and Feb aren't snake months.
If a land owner had a beaver problem and you were having a hard time accessing the problem they would build you a road LOL

Mississippi. In my area, I make a little gas money trapping on row crop farms, cattle ponds and timber. Even do a little work on a fish farm that gives up 60+ inch otter


For by grace are you saved by faith, and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
