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!

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
