They seem to co-exist fine here. Very often we catch Marten and Fisher in the same trap.

Have had fisher eat marten in traps quite a bit.

It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

Just my experiences in Northern Maine. Ten years ago I caught about 6 marten per fisher. 2019 I caught 1 to 1. 2020 I caught 2 marten per fisher. I had a single trap at a location for about two weeks in 2020. It caught two marten & two fisher on the last check I saw fisher & marten tracks near the set that had a weasel in it. For some reason every trap I set may catch either a fisher or marten. One trapper operating near me this year had about 2 marten per fisher. Two other nearby trappers had about 8 marten per fisher. The 2 to 1 guy was about ten miles from me the 8 to 1 guys were about 30 or so miles from me.

Almost got into an axe fight in the bush. Luckily we both compromised and moved along. Time will tell though.

Got a buddy that traps north of Algonquin Park in central Ontario, His quotas on one line which he regularly harvests year after year is 40 fisher and 40 marten.
Got another friend that traps south eastern Ontario and he has caught some seasons as high as 90 fisher a year.Marten are non existant where he traps.

Yes, pirogies are a comfort food for my wife and the rest of the family. She does them homemade, anymore, to get the full satisfaction they offer.

Nice fisher, I like how you arranged them like cuddling dolls for the photos.
