Otter Carcasses Needed!

Trappers are urged to freeze their otter carcasses and donate them to the WV-DNR as part of the ongoing otter study. The information from these carcasses will help determine future otter seasons. Carcasses can be dropped off at any DNR regional office, brought to the March Fur Auction, or dropped off at Barker's Fur Shed in Smithville, WV.
