Fisher mount

11 posts in this topic

Now that all I need is for a fisher to poke his nose in one of my traps, what do I do with one? I'm leaning towards a rug if I get a nice one, probably sell the hide if it isn't. Anyone seen a fisher rug? How'd it look? Any other ideas? Probably not a full mount. Later.

i have seen fisher rugs and they are great along with mounts of fishers but when i get my first fisher it will be a rug. Hope you get one. I am going to be trapping for them again this year and cant wait. Got my fingers crossed i get a bobcat to boot.

Sounds like one vote for a rug - I'm leaning that way as I already have a nice yote rug. I'd like a bobcat also, and I have a tag for one this year grin.gif Also on the list is a red fox, grey fox, and then a bear. Eventually a wolf and mountain lion. I must have a fur fetish wink.gif

Cooter, a friend of mine who is a taxidermist mounted his fisher jumping over a deer shed antler. Wow, it looks good. He even won a award with it at a show. I'll try to get a pic for ya.

Sounds cool, can't wait to see the pic. Have any idea what a full mount would cost? Ballpark.

Well I'm all ready to trap this weekend! The one and only thing I know for sure is that I'm deathly afraid of #220 conibears smirk.gif Will report on Mon - hopefully without any stories of Cooter's forearm sandwiched in a fisher trap shocked.gif

I can't seem to kill a deer this year so I'm hoping the fisher trapping will go a bit smoother.

I love fur rugs. I don't have a fisher, but I have a bear and a racoon and a grey fox. The fisher would be great, I say go for it!

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
