I taped this fisher while bow hunting along the Eastern River inDresden, Maine. He followed my estrus rail right up to my tree. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Tfq-PbdwBsk
I had one last year try to get into the same tree as I was in. I was using racoon piss as a cover scent on my boots for walking in and she folowed it into my tree. The way fishers hunt is they get something up a tree clime up after it and gut it from underneath. they were reintroduced to Ontario to cut back on the porcupine pop. The last thing you want in a tree with you is a fisher, they have been known to put a bear off it's own kill.
well lets just say my arrow was more than she was counting on when she tried to gut this big old coon
Very cool. They are so elusive. My sister has one living in her back yard in Ludlow Vermont. We've seen it twice in 5 years. They have a bad reputation of eating peoples pets. So much so the cats can't go out any more.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
