Those are some big otters, you must have some good stuff in that food plot for them to travel 100 miles to eat  --099-780

If you or any of the neighbors have a stocked pond, you may want to start a night patrol, those cute little buggers can flat out eat and will clean out a small pond pretty quick.

Otters have made a pretty good comeback in IL - I haven't looked lately but a few years ago when otter trapping was re-introduced here they had some very strict rules on how many (how few) you could take and the reporting you had to do if you caught one.  Snort - if you have any trappers in the area you might want to see if any of them want to pursue them too.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
