Trapping a Beautiful Wisconsin Fisher
Please let us know why you want to report this user.
@Brad now ya’ll need a fisher as an animal for trophy’s. He was a beast! Males are usually 7-15 pounds. Females only get to be 1/2 that size.

Thank you! One less predator in northern Wisconsin to kill our fawns, turkeys, grouse, and bunnies. They’ve even been known to attack and kill bobcats in Canada. Pretty neat animal in my opinion. I’m excited to get him tanned to hang on my wall
Some more pictures
Trap still on
White on his belly

Thats awesome. 👍they have been trying to get fisher going out here in Washington state the last few years or so.
@Ethan they’re trying to get Pine Martin to take off here in wisco but it doesn’t seem to be working.
@Jeanine we have a good amount of marten. I dont know alot about them, but out here martin are mostly in the 3000ft + or - elevation, so very few people trap them here.
@Ethan illegal to trap them here in wisconsin. We have “Pine Martin Restoration Areas” that it’s actually illegal to use most traps.
@Jeanine we have the same gig here with fisher. Difference is that here in Washington we can only use live traps so if you catch a fisher it can be released without harm. Unless they have changed the regulations you can still trap in the release sites. If catch one they ask that you get a picture of the fisher and collect any fur or droppings for the biologist. They are caught in bobcat sets every now and then.
@Jeanine way cool! We don’t have anything like that to trap in IN. Bobcats are making a comeback though. We should have a season already. Hopefully in the next year or two we can get it done.
@Brian that’s how I have felt about wolves in WI. Our population has been way underestimated by our DNR. wolves have been decimating other animals by us like deer and it’s even been confirmed they’ve dragged bears out of their dens and have killed them not far from my house.
@Jeanine yes wolves need to be delt with but it’s not popular to talk about. People don’t understand the endangered species act and what it’s purpose is.
@Brian back in the day, the generation of my grandparents were paid a bounty for every wolf they killed. Crazy to compare that to today.
@Jeanine it’s unbelievable but no one remembers the destruction wolves are capable of and most people think their food comes from the grocery store so it won’t matter if wolves wipe everything out.
