Very pretty marten. Some day I will have to get one to make a pouch from. Can't trap them here in WI.

Cool deal Boco.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I will give you this, your trapping posts are worth reading. Good job and congrats.

By the way, your tanning thread was great. I did a few up and it worked great. Thank you.

Juveniles come already skinned, or what?

Nice set up , and catch. Interested in why on a pole away from the tree.
How it doesn't tip downward over time .
2-3 nails for support ?

See those two temporal muscles on the top of the skull?
On a male marten they are divided by a strip of bone when they are under a year old.
As they age the temporal muscles on the top of the head grow together.if they touch along the top of the head that marten is not a juvenile.

Marten trappers use data on sex and age ratios in their harvest to tell them when to quit trapping so as not to harm the line.
juveniles and adult males are the target-Marten trappers managing the resource on an RTL avoid the harvest adult female marten as much as possible.
When the ratio in your catch drops below 4 juvenile and or adult male marten to each adult female it is time to stop trapping.
Some years there are a lot of juvenile marten in the harvest some years not so many.

Would like to catch a marten. There isn't any in this area. Would have to travel a few hours north to get into them.

Is catching the bait by design?

He likely had a bite on it when he triggered the trap.
