I had actually been seeing fisher tracks early in the season, and placed a bucket set in a thick pine tree planting. Beaver meat and a thick skunky lure. I fully expected to get the fisher, but was pleasantly surprised with the cat. I wish I had taken pictures of it's belly, It was super nice white with big spots, very UN-minnestoa like. I'm hoping he does well up at the auction in a couple of weeks.

Hi Chris,

I'm not done trappin them yet. Usually take another 75 or so in the spring, when the ice starts to go out. Been averaging a couple hundred a year for quite some time.

Putting the hurt on the rats right now. Don't have a new count yet but getting 10-12 of them a day right now.

Man thats impressive. You sound like my uncle with coons. He traps for two weeks straight every year up in iowa and he usually gets over two hundred. Looks like you know what your doing. Hope i can put up some numbers like that next season.

true. the one I'm holding would of been a tight squeeze into a 220, but I got that one with a snare. 220 is the biggest coni we can put above water here in Minnesota.
