I saw them quite a bit when I lived in NH but thus far I've only seen 1 maybe 2 here in PA. I tend to see mink quite often while fishing along PA's streams but not fishers. Despite their name, I don't think fishers are common sights along rivers and streams like a mink is.

they hiss don't they. they look cuddly but I interrupted one eating birds eggs (likely Plover) down on the beach one dawn.

i gave it a wide berth out of respect (its his beach not mine) and it had the face to hiss at me !

The fisher is a LARGE member of the weasel family. The largest member of the family is the wolverine! I read a story one time where TWO wolverines chased a grizzly bear off of a moose kill! IMO all members of the weasel family have bad attitudes! Pound for pound the toughest animals in the world.

A dead one appear on my grandfathers farm ~10 years ago in perry county PA. It didn't have any wounds maybe it died of old age.

I have seen a mink on penns creek 2 years in a row at the same place on the stream

I've seen several weasels in West Virginia

They are more and more common in SW PA. They are very mean. Their main prey choice is a porquipine. I believe a few of them were introduced in the area to help control the porqupine population. They are cool to watch. I believe they are similar to the pine martin, as well.

They are not extremly rare but i belive you need a specail tag for them to trap them and they have a relativly short trapping season.

They were extirpated from PA back in the day. They were reintroduced in the 1990s, not very long ago.

That little guy is badass.
