Upon further review, it looks like there actually could be some fishers down here...


Tight Lines,
Very cool...it's good that the park is off limits to hunting them with all of the pressure they get in other areas around the park.

I wanted to add more after the photo I posted but had issues after I added the image. I couldn't find anyway to continue my story below the picture, anyways here's the rest of the story.
For our 30th wedding anniversary my wife agreed to go on a canoe trip with me to the BWCA. While at our campsite I had wandered off into the woods to gather some firewood when my wife calls me and says there's a animal over here. There wasn't panic in her voice that might indicate a bear so I headed back to find Mr. Fisher helping himself to our trailmix.
He wasn't in any hurry to leave which surprised me he waited until I took some pictures and it wasn't until I poked at him with stick,a long one he did show us his rather sharp looking teeth,that he took off.

I was told years ago that there were weasels in TN but, until I saw one, one night on Calderwood lake I didn't believe it. No, telling.
Lots of recent sightings of them on the Plateau
