1st morning check after setting yesterday. Not a bad start for the season. No fisher but a cat and another weasel.

What a great way to start the season! Congratulations!


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Looks like a nice heavy cat backroad. Nothing doing here today, we set up another dozen sets of so.. even dropped in a few otter sets.. I'm confident me and the boys will connect soon here.. tons of Fischer sign, and even seeing a bit of cat sign also..

Way to go Backroads.

I have a half dozen 160 boxes out and 5 120 boxes out. All the 160s are on a fisher track on a water way, and the 120s are on mink sign. I hope those fisher will run those routes again before season ends.

Nice cat! Pretty slow here today but we did manage to catch a nice big otter, male mink (stinking critters) and 3 rats. The cat and fisher sign has been non existent.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Well 3 of us managed to get it done in the first night. The area we run we average 1 marten per 4 or 5 traps and this year didn't disappoint at 1 per 4.5. Had 5 in 120's in boxes and 1 in a 155 on a pole set. They really don't seem to like the pole sets around there. Was debating on trying a new area to target some fisher since we have only ever caught one in this area but prior success outweighed the urge. For some reason they ran a little lighter than they usually do. Tried to get some pictures but I forgot one.

It always seems to work out however many Marten you can catch is what you catch no mater how many you set. When the limit was 5 we would set 50-60 traps and always limit out with the exact number of critters. Weird .

Rick, no Logan got his first otter last year but it was a small, young of the year animal. This was a nice dark adult animal. I will make a post of his season adventures when I get time. The live mink in the rat house was exciting!


I have nothing clever to put here.

How many marten and/or fisher are you guys allowed person season in MN? I know you all have a short season and a quota but can't remember the details.

And FINALLY the rats we have been looking for! # 97, 98, 99 and 100! We set 2 colony traps side by side in a small creek on Thursday. It has not produced a thing until today and each had 2 rats.

Your picture of him holding out the rat should be sent in for a magazine cover! Great Job!
