Nebraska Game and Parks Division
Nebraska has depredation trappers.
A permit is required for all trappers, regardless of age, to take, attempt to take, or possess any furbearing animal, which includes beaver, marten, mink (except mutations), muskrat, raccoon, opossum, and otter. In addition, all nonresidents and any resident 16 years of age or older must have a valid Habitat Stamp to trap. Since raccoon and opossum are also listed as game animals, they may also be taken under a hunting permit by firearm or archery.
Resident trapper is $16
