Re: Otter Trapping
Wow! What a beautiful furbearer! It would be neat to see a trapping season for them. But, like you stated, you would not like to se a limit but just look at the fisher situation. I live in an area just loaded with fisher and people around here catch several during trapping season. The problem is the season is only 6 days long. The fisher has a large territory and may be in one area right before the season and then disappear. I had a dozen coilsprings set out during this past season in an area that was loaded with tracks in the snow during deer season. (what little snow we had then) I caught nothing during that span since the fisher may have moved to another area.
The horizon is your starting point.
