Fisher Trapping - Pennsylvania Foothold Methods

By Ralph Scherder & Rich Faler

If you love the wilds of the mountains, the hiss of snow against hemlock needles, and the stiff December breezes that snake around the high ridges, then you'll love the pursuit for fisher - a fox sized mink that symbolizes the Far North and wilderness places. These pages will show you how to put together the puzzle pieces which make up the trapping tapestry. It's a challenge and a love. It's a pursuit which will leave you wanting many more days afield.
