Fisher Sets

Thinking of finding a leaning tree, putting a foothold at the bottom and bait farther up the tree. Covered of course with pine branches and wire. Sound good? Anyone ever try this?
Thanks!

Re: Fisher Sets

probably no "need" to get fancy with it...



flashy dirt holes and cubby sets are said to work well...


and..any well made "coyote set" in fisher territory might get worked by a fisher....


good luck!

ive never caught one...tried for a season or 2...no luck

Re: Fisher Sets

".any well made "coyote set" in fisher territory might get worked by a fisher...."

while i've always thought about trying some running pole sets, i've snapped enough during non-season to know they're not required. as stated, regular dirthole sets take them fine, trust me. even nailed one- the only one i've gotten in season, on a flat set, but baited nonetheless.

i'm sure lots of stuff works, but for me, experience has shown deer scraps works best. especially in light that they're hitting gut piles right now, 'new' deer scraps down a hole after piles in the woods start to disappear does the trick.

Re: Fisher Sets

Running poles are usually made where deep snow is expected.
A common set in northern U.S., Canada and Alaska.
Running pole keeps trap and bait working/above deep snow conditions.
