Season open's tomorrow,a good friend is getting back into trapping,he retired from the East Grand Forks fire dept.He's never caught a marten,fisher,otter,coyote or a bobcat so we are trying to get them off his bucket list.Merl used to trap 30 to 35 fox back in the day so he's really looking forward to this week.He has a place up at Rocky Point so he'll be around for awhile,i've known him for 25 years or so,i'm really looking forward to his firsts...Ö.He set his first two otter sets today.

Do otter have a home area or are they constantly on the move?

They do stay in an area for awhile,then there gone for about 2 weeks then back to a home area for a few days is what I've seen.It has to do with the amount of food that is around.Good luck.

Good luck everybody. Enjoy your week after fisher/marten. Boxes are baited and I am headed out. Found 1 new fisher track 2 days ago, hopefully he will be back in the next few days. Coyotes are finally back after the firearms season and starting to check the sets out but not stepping on any pans yet. Soon I hope. A couple of Cats around but tracks look on the smaller size. Things are starting to pick up.

Yea just getting back in to the swing of things myself. Last few years I've been on hold a bit, but me and the boys are headed out soon here to set up a small cat/Fischer line.. looking forward to it.

We got some sets out today but no fresh sign after all the heavy wet snow last night. Hopefully they move around tonight and we can atleast find some tracks tomorrow. Got 1 otter set in with a bunch of slides coming off a lake, hoping it comes through before we head out.

3 fisher sets out and even dropped in a few weasel boxes. Our snow has just about gone so finding fresh sign is tuff. Set fisher sets in areas that have had success in the past. Set a couple of more canine sets, hopefully they will start to connect.

Set out 20 sets today. Saw a lot of good sign today also. Could use a bit of snow again, as the snow we do have is fairly crunchy..
