That thing is kind of cool looking . Sort of like an elongated bear , weasel type critter.
All we have here where I'm from ,( that I'm aware of ) , is a fair amount of porcupines
Lots of mountain lions , and a decent population of black bears .
Though , last winter a young wolf was shot by one of our locals out hunting coyotes . He called it in and it was investigated by our local conservation officer . Surprised everyone cause we've been told over the years that there is absolutely NO WAY there are wolves around here .

Sounds like maybe Utah & Pa game commision is related.

They swore up and down for years we didnt have any coyotes when people were seeing them all the time. Called everyone a liar,, until people started shooting the damn things. I have shot several and kill every damn one I see if possible. The rumor is that they traded turkey to Michigan for coyote. And a friend in Michigan told me that michigan game service bragged about what a great deal they were getting to resupply their turkey population.

Now they are saying there are NO mountain lions here. People have been seeing them for at least 15 years. Ive seen 2. The one we seen in 2005 near Medix Run ,PA, was witnessed by at least 5 people. And living in Colorado for a while, and traveling all over the rockies for years, I damn sure know what one looks like. But now, thanks to game cams, sighting are getting more common. In 2008, someone had a picture of one in Bradford,PA. the game commision said he was a liar and hoaxer. So he just turned his camera around facing the other way. The next time he got pics of the cat,, the ZIPPO lighter plant was in the backround. The game service refused to comment.
My friend near Smethport PA had a game cam pic of one at his deer feeder, and I know that pic was authentic.
people are still speculating whether our game service turned them loose also. because its painfully obvious they are trying to wipe out the Whitetail population. The PA game commision is NOT in the game management business, they are in the TIMBER management business.
All they care about is their damn elk that they make millions off of in just lottery license fee's.

I was in Clayton Idaho in 2002, ( west about 30 miles). and the place was polluted with wolves. it was NOT safe to be outside at night because they were not afraid of people.

Had mama Fisher Cat and two young take up residence in our barn in 2011 before we rebuilt it. I was able to encourage them to leave by making noise and then patched the hole they made to get in.

I see them frequently in the woods and the more I see around the less mice I catch in the house or barn. I like watching them as they know how to hunt.

They found their way into Ct. either through Mother Nature or the the Game Dept. In either case they have impacted both the turkey pop. and the deer from the rumors I get from more regular hunters.

Awesome pic Terry.

You should have just grabbed em by the back of the neck like a "house cat"" and carried her outside.

Heres one I caught on game cam a couple weeks back. Kinda hard to see, but thats what I say that black lil critter is in the pic.

Late to the party as usual! While deer hunting early this fall my hunt companion told of seeing a Fisher Cat the previous year and not a half hour later he saw it/one again which I missed seeing. About an hour later I saw it/one, they are quick. Our hunting property is supposedly on the south western part of their range here in northern California.

I seen one run down about a 50 foot log on the ground about 5 years ago while hunting. It was so fast, and almost jet black looking, it took a minute to realize what Id just seen.

Watching one run across about a 75 yard field just amazed me how fast it could move. I doubt I coulda shot if i tried.

We have that same problem here with the DNR and their track record with game management too. When I was a younger, you'd be lucky to see a White Tail Deer. NOW they are everywhere and (I think) our State is now rated 4th for car deer hits. They've become a pest in the Cities. They've denied turning Cougars loose too.

Actually, the Pine marten and the Fisher are different animals. Similar, but the fisher is way bigger than the smaller marten. We have both here in the UP of Mi.

Members of the Weasel family are very destructive to wildlife

and habitat. They are eating machines, and their metabolism needs

fuel almost constantly, in order to survive.
