Whether you call it a Fisher, Fisher Cat, Pekan, or by its latin name Martes pennanti – there are as many incredible stories about this predator as there are names, some may be a little too incredible. This month on Outdoor Radio, hosts Kent McFarland and Sara Zahendra join biologist Steve Faccio to learn about the mystical Fisher. Faccio helped to successfully reintroduce Fishers in Connecticut, and with the aid of radio tags or tracks in the snow, he’s followed their lives closely.
Join Outdoor Radio as they use the new-fallen snow to find the tracks of a Fisher and see what it was doing. Along they way, they’ll dispel a few myths about Fisher and learn about some amazing natural history and adaptations. Walk with the Fisher on Outdoor Radio.
