Marten and Fisher often share the same habitat and are attracted to the same baits and lures, but because of their very different body size, finding a trap for both has been a problem. The #120, suitable for marten, can be too small for fisher, and the #160 and #220, suitable for fisher, can be too large for marten. Now there is a trap size that will consistently catch both: the new 5x5 and #155 double spring bodygrippers, with full 5-inch inside jawspreads.
In the first hour of this DVD, Bob Noonan demonstrates an effective combination marten/fisher set with the 5x5 on a northern Maine wilderness trapline.
In the second hour, well-known Maine trapper and fur buyer Jerry Braley, who has handled 3,000-plus fisher and 4,000-plus marten, gives in depth, detailed, step-by-step fur handling instructions for both these valuable furbearers.
