trick drops the mother load :) . Some bring back memories even for me! How many fishers have you caught now in your fox sets, 2 or 3??



I caught 3 fishers intended for fox or coyote. I just can't catch them during our ridiculously short 5 day season. :roll:

Those are some fantastic pictures guys! I always enjoy Swamps pictures from the days of yore.

Speaking of which, I've been looking for a picture of me with my first fox I got in 1983. I know I have a couple of them but just haven't found it yet.

My first coyote in a snare...........just before christmas.

Big otter off of a beaver darn. Makes that 330 not look so big.
Image

Some raccoons. Most weren't target catches...........the one of the left I got in a coyote snare. I got 2 more in an otter set on a beaver darn.

Only 5 mink this year.
Image

I did manage to get a nice female fisher in our 5 day season.
Image

I don't really go after beaver in the fall but some farmers asked me to remove some and I couldn't say no.
Image

Muskrats still aren't as plentiful as a few years ago.........only 74.
Image

Sorry about the bad lighting. Love to see the 3X line covered.

All my canines hung up in the garage.

Very cool L. !!! It looks like your yotes tend to be paler than down here. I suspect they will go for more coin than our tawny semi-heavies :) . Must be a more Northern Plains thing. Were a couple of your mink "blue" or just the way the leather was on them. Yeah, only 74 mrats but I take that number any day, especially the last 3 years. Someday they may return in numbers down here...

Them are COOL Swamp! That one in the old DLS is settin pretty. I've seen a few darker than typical yotes around over the years but not a regular occurance. Never caught one real dark like the ones you have in the pics.
