When my daughter got done skiing we headed out and hung two more baits and set traps on 3 sets of new tracks. Cold and dark by the time we were done.

When I look at the photo you are right they do look like squirrels but they are definitely marten. Big pads, offset. I checked today again and nothing new to report. Itís been very cold for here, ten below most nights. I definitely see more activity when itís in the twenties. Our marten season goes from DEC. 1 to Feb 15 and it seems slowest in the middle of that time period for sure.

Checked my first set this morning and Ö marten didnít commit. Messed with the quarter and moved on. Iíd bet it will be back. But man so close!

Checked one last trap at the edge of a meadow. I had made some scent posts (no trap) for fox and a marten had visited and basically gridded the whole area. I never give much credence to scent but this marten seems to have been very attuned to scent.

Marten got a ride back in the sled. We think itís a female or juvenile male, it will get worked up and released in the Lyle Belts tomorrow. It certainly wasnít as shy when got it the box attached to a trap in the garage where it will spend the night.

Well I tripped traps for a few days and then reset them on Wednesday with another 12Ē of new snow. Checked tonight and nothing happening. Itís warmed up 40 degrees in the last 24 hours so Iíve got high hopes, and another 6Ē of snow. Makes me really appreciate a 120 hung in a vertical box on a tree.. nothing works harder in your absence than a kill trap in sub-freezing weather, just check at your leisure!
