Well, the NYS DEC has a Fisher season in WNY. But the season is only 5 days long . To top it off, the have it when the fur isn't even prime yet.

What is the point of :

A. A 5 day season?

B. having the trapping season when the fur is not prime?

True,but they have an uncanny ability to skew the number game.
Would a ten day season jeopardize a population model? All reports seem to indicate a population expansion.

They've (NYS DEC) Already Done That In The New Western New York Fisher Season.

There Are No Bag Limits And A Trapper Can Take As Many As He Can During That Five Day Period.

During The Inaugural Fisher Season Last Year, Some Trappers Harvested Multiple Fisher.

NYS DEC Needs A Later Start To The Fisher Season and One Longer In Duration.

Starting It After Deer Season Would Be A Good Idea Also.

MN made ours real short as well. It more of a trophy thing now. They asked why I didn't trap them last year at tagging day, and I told them the short season was a waste of time.

I have caught plenty and not hard to throw a skunk bucket and wait one out. We have plenty and I am almost to the red river and have them on camera and bear baits all the time.

MN seems to be turning to protect all the predators and kill everything else off. Don't make sense if we kill all the food and have thousands of predators. Bears, wolves, fisher, bobcats, they try to save them all here it seems. Getting stupid with the amount of bears in our area and we are no quota.

The numbers have to be growing because West Virginia has a season with a bag limit of one and here in Virginia we have them listed as a fur bearer with a continuous closed season. I hope I get the first nontarget catch will have to turn it in but it would still be cool I trap the state line.

Mostly about “opportunity “. Weather is good & it turns that trapping “opportunity “ into a “trophy opportunity “.

After 3 years they may adjust length of season and date of opening.
Five first year trappers in our 2016 trapping class caught fisher. One guy got 8.
An anonymous local guy caught 21 in five days this year.

If West Virginia had a bigger cat limit I would get a out of state license so if I did pick one on the line I could keep.
