    No. Pages 16 and 22 in the summary of hunting and trapping regulations is where I found the following information.

    Furbearers that are legal to take on a hunting permit during furbearer season (via legal firearm or archery methods) include coyotes, badger, bobcat, gray fox, red fox, opossum, raccoon, striped skunk, and groundhogs. Otters, beaver, muskrat, and nutria may only be taken on a trapping permit via legal traps.
