I posted these 2 pics on the photo section and was kinda wondering if you trappers would know difinitively if the animal that made these "run and slide" tracks in the snow were from a fisher..the sliding tracks were running on this old road for about 600 yards or so(never came across this before

away from any water) but I've seen otter do it but don't think these are from an otter)..you guys have any input?...just curious I guess grin.gifjonny

Even though it is far away from water it could still very well be an otter. That is my guess but I don't know much about fisher. I don't think they slide though.

Have a photo of the track so we can see the paw print?

Fisherman,I sure wish I would have taken a real good close-up of the foot prints,I have a

"so-so" crop of the tracks that may just be of help but by the "gait" of the animals tracks, it kinda has the weasel family running gait....never really gave it a thought to photo the tracks close up I guess....... smirk.gif........(and great photos of the fox by the way!,I check out this site daily!Alaska sure is a great untapped state,such beauty and wildlife)jonny grin.gif

Definately otter. Fishers do not slide and will most oftely leave scoop like prints with their feet together or when they walk they leave nothing like what you have their. Not suprising though that this was away from water as we have caught otters in fisher sets as far as a mile from any water.. Nice picts though.

I'd say otter also, what other kind of animal could, or would slide that far in the snow, multiple times, except an

always playfull otter?
