You're talking about the running pole set, right? Here is an example-- http://furshed.ca/popup.php?img=runningpole2&page=fisher

That type of set is used quite a bit for fisher and marten too I believe.

thats pretty much it. i know with bobcats being great climbers this set may have its place for them around here. the plus side of it is being able to run 220's just for them and never haveing to worry about unwanted cacthes for the most part.

for the most part it would seem to be a set that dosent get used much around here as much as it is way up north. i am thinking i will just set up a dozen of these up in the dense tree areas with the pole sticking in a bobcats trails and see what happens this winter.

I dont use them but they would work. My partner had a pole set up with a trail cam on it to see if there were marten in the area. Here is what he got.

That is a bobcat on the pole feeding on a hunk of beaver meat.

I think I would use a bigger pole. And I would snare them on it, high enough for a kill.

That is a cool idea but I would wonder about fisher catches. Cat season goes on allot longer up here then fisher season does. I have seen leaning pole for fisher but this is new. They must put the 220 higher off the running pole as a cat would probably jump a 220. Or do they 330 these sets. Please tell me more I am interested.

This was all hypothetical, we were just wondering if it was possible.

I use a set for cats that keeps most of the snow off, I call it a "roof cubby".

Excuse the crude sketch, a dirthole is made at the base of the tree. And the results are obvious.

in some state they do use 330's for this. i am considering doing it with 220's since thats asa big as i can go on dry land. i would think haveing it higher up would help alot with a 220 maybe four inches or higher off the pole some how or another. forceing them to stick there head through it. keeping the 220 close to the bait would help out too i would think.
