ND Fisher

Big male fisher trapped in the valley last night. The nearby farm had 13 barn cats this fall. Now they are down to 4.

Result of a highly secret and illegal reintroduction, no doubt,  Carried out to save bird dogs from porcupines!!.:ph34r:   

 

That is one serious studmuffin of a fisher.

I have no idea on $$ value. The trapper is going to make a flat wall mount. The season here is 1 week.

Been seeing lots of fishers and pine martens this winter here in Manitoba. Fishers are pretty cool animals and move a bit like wolverines although they seem pretty slow in deep snow. Remo, no snow in your neck of the woods I see.

Trapping fisher and pine marten both belong on my bucket list. I'd rather have one of each of those than a wolf.

Nice! I have only seen one in the wild, while bow hunting. It came through snarling like a Tasmanian devil.

I've had one almost crawl in my lap while calling turkey.  My friend said one jumped on a tom years ago while he was calling it in for his father.  It seemed the population around my way was growing a few years ago, but I haven't seen one in a while, but I see some tracks every year.  My father has one mounted, picked it out of a snow bank, must have got caught up by the plow truck.

 

I've read prime fisher is around $60 at auction.

According to fisher best management practices, fisher in Minnesota need den trees of 18 to 25 inches in diameter.  So I am curious, where do they find these den trees in ND?  I see some large cottonwood occasionally in ND but not that many.  When I am setting up timber, I try to leave a few larger aspen across the project specifically for fisher habitat.

$30-$40 for a good fisher.

 

I won't kill one for that kind of money.
