I’ve been running trail cameras for many years. For me, checking trail cams to see what has been captured is akin to a child unwrapping gifts on Christmas morning. It’s a ton of fun, it keeps me connected to the outdoors and it always has me wondering what I might see next.
Over the past few years I have gotten numerous night pictures of a dark, mysterious creature. Here is an example from 2013:
That’s a fisher, right? I’ve seen similar photos many times and that’s always been my belief. All of the photos I have are very similar to this one and, while I’m almost certain it’s a fisher, I’ve always had some doubt given the rare number of sightings and elusive nature of these small mammals. That is until now… check this out:
My friends, all doubt has now been erased. I love this photo and I was thrilled to retrieve it off of my camera. In 5+ years of getting night photos of what I thought was a fisher, this is the first daylight photo I have seen that makes it conclusive. Good stuff!
