Live trapping Marten in Montana - 12/29/21 02:43 AM
I thought Iíd start a thread to share some experiences Iíve had live trapping marten in Montana. Montana FWP is doing a project to relocate marten into a central Montana mountain range where they were extirpated a century ago. In conjunction with the Montana Trappers Association they asked for volunteers and my daughter and I signed up. We are very inexperienced marten trappers, I started trapping them as a way to trap with my daughter. Marten are nice because we could hang them in 120ís and check them once a week when we go to our cabin to ski on weekends. We had caught maybe 18 in the previous three years as we messed around with them.
