Hunting Giant Nutria in Louisiana with a Ruger 10/22 Is Quite the Thrill [VIDEO]

Giant nutria rats are chowing down on everything in the South and need to be eradicated.

What better way to combat this invasive pest than with a Ruger 10/22 rifle and a big stick?

Watch as these hunters help the environment and take some pests out of the equation.

The invasive species known as nutria rats or coypu are a big problem in Louisiana. They have taken over the southern swamps. They eat all the young plants in an area and they undermine the shorelines causing lots of problems.

On the plus side, they have a five-dollar bounty on their tails. That pays for your boat gas to hunt them.

This hunter knows his Ruger 10/22 rifles and his is very custom.

By firing his .22 rifle or using a club, this hunter gets rid of the rats. Hunting nutria is major fun and an important tool for environmental restoration.
