Are there marten in the Black Hills of South Dakota? Son sent a video from Black Hills today of what looks like a marten to me.

I donít know about marten, but a friend 45 miles west of me showed me a trail cam pic of a fisher two or three years ago. Picture was very clearly a fisher and in the daylight. Very surprising to see, so who knows what all wanders in from time to time.

I don't know either but I would not be surprised . Looks like the habitat in the BH would be supportive

Yep we have them. There are a couple areas where they are going well. Friend of mine caught 3 last year live trapping for cats. Released them

I think in the very near future we may have a very limited season. Thereís some study starting to figure out population estimates.

I'd like to read that when available ! I can't imagine how a guy would go about that.

I do believe they are a pretty fragile species and easy to over-harvest.

I had heard they relocated some there in recent years. A couple of years ago I drove south of Spearfish to see what the habitat looked like. I did see some areas that looked like potential marten habitat, but it sure didn't look like much of the area was good habitat; it looked too dry to me. Mostly north facing slopes and some darker (damper) canyons that looked okay.

Look how dry it is around Gulo's house. Like a popcorn fart most of the time. He has marten right there in the sage...... Not lots but they are there
