You have to discard them. You can't harvest any part of them. Even carrying the dead otter or hauling it in your car would have probably got you a ticket, as it shows intent to harvest, but skinning it certainly shows intent to harvest.
We have a permissive law in Missouri...if it doesn't say you can do it, you can't do it.
Pretty much what Kim said.I've had coons get caught in castor sets ,as coons love the stuff.Just have to pitch them.Sucks,but beats a ticket.I have my GW number in my phone so I can get in contact with him if something comes up.

farmnhunter: If you want to avoid feline, you can't use any meat or fish item or scent. Try a piece of black licorish covered by dairy feed, or lucky charms or corn/koolaid (mix 1 qt whole corn with a package of grape koolaid)
