Congrats on the cat. Not much for movement in my neck of the woods.

You ain't kidding,I've only seen two sets of tracks (neither was fisher or cat of course) since we got the heavy wet snow! Been making as many sets as I can,but with the cold and blowing snow it's becoming mission impossible to keep them operational. Good luck to everyone 👍

Nice Eric! Probably a while before he thaws. Was outside for a few minutes and figured that was enough for me.

I thought it was my old one I sold up that a couple years ago, especially with that box design. Take Care Nate!

WTG Eric! Wish I could say I was hot onto them but no one has seen anything this fall and I haven't even cut tracks on one. This wind and snow doesn't help much either. Looking forward to the pics!

My experience with marten has been that when temps go extreme cold, they move either higher up the mountains, where it is warmer, or they hole up.
Minnesota doesn't have high enough mountains, so there you go.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

I managed to get a second male marten right before the close of season. Not a very vibrant one, but happy to fill tags after all the effort this season.

Well it was another great year! The snow made me realize that I am not 25 anymore. We managed to fill the marten tags, but only found one set of cat tracks. We pulled traps on Friday and the partners headed back to the twin cities area.

And after we were done, I went out again today to check for cat sign. I was able to congratulate this guy for surviving the season

Nice to see the gang had some success again this year! Congrats!

Thanks, the population must be doing ok, in the last two years we have caught 14 marten there, and 13 were adult males. Not sure why, but we only trap boxes on the ground, maybe that makes a difference?

At the fur registration today there was one monkey that brought in a fur and skull from a fisher that clearly had been in the freezer for a year. BUSTED

No it was at the Wadena office. I wasn’t there when the guy was but the officers had it. Asked me if it looked like it had been in the freezer. It was freezer burnt bad.
