Fisher

I set my Traps on the 18th of Dec for Coyote and Fox. I check my traps on the morning of the 19th. A Fisher is in one Trap. Do I:
A. Release the Fisher since the Trap was set on the 18th
or
Keep the Fisher since it is the 19th.
Thanks

Re: Fisher

Keep it if it is in season. Don't matter when you legally set the trap.

Re: Fisher

Trying to decide on vacation days. 18th-20th or 24th- 27th. Place I have for Fisher and Bobcat is 2 hours away. Brother's place. Would be driving back and forth. Worth it if I got at least one critter.

Re: Fisher

It is hard to catch a Fisher during the short season. I managed to last year for the first time since we have been able to trap them. And I have had years with 30+ sets out. Not strictly for Fisher, but in their areas.

Re: Fisher

Brother told me the neighbor has seen at least two. That will build my confidence up. I'll be using footholds with cat collector lure and Federales from Clint. Anything different I should use for Fisher? Thanks

Re: Fisher

"Keep it if it is in season. Don't matter when you legally set the trap."

the year i got a fisher in season, it was on a remake of a set i snapped a gray fox in about 2 weeks prior....which was a set i put in about 2 weeks before that. so my steel was in the ground for at least a month, but what counted is i had a fisher in it during season. technically you didnt set your traps 'for fox and yote'; you set traps and hoped it'd snap a fox or yote. in reality, setting traps makes them functional on any kind of animal, including non-targets which i'm sure we've all caught. if your daily check nets a fisher in season, its yours, assuming you have a tag.

Re: Fisher

For fisher, try "Gusto" lure, by Caven. Really loud smelling. Any dirt hole set will catch them. They seem to be drawn to previous catch sites. Ridge top logging roads are a hot spot. If you can find a good turkey roosting spot, if you have fishers around, they'll visit the roost locations with regularity.
