    iím thinking it was a Pine Martin. It was about house cat sized, and I figure the fishers are about twice the size of the average house cat.

    fucker had no fear of me at all though. Came right up and circled around me twice just a few feet away, then took a piss and wandered off.

    it was a rather odd encounter.

    seems huge for a pine marten to me....

    also its basically ignoring you means it has no fear, which i believe is a trait of a fisher.

    That picture definitely looks like a pine marten and seen much more often. I mistook the size of the original. We can now go back to watching the flood

    I think that is an American Martin but something is wrong with it. No fear and out during the day, since they are normally nocturnal. Maybe people have been feeding it? It is a mammal so could have rabies? Not sure.
    I saw a juvenile fisher recently on the trail and it was so cute.

    I was there after the 93 blizzard, and that rock wall peeping out of the right side was skiable. Only time I've ever seen that.

    No bullshit, but that looks like an accident waiting to happen. I see ragdolls down grass and dirt.
    I got fucking spoiled.

    If it was a Fisher it would have grabbed the bacon, eaten it in front of him and then taken his pack for fun.

    Definitely not a pine martin or fisher, this little dude/dudette helped me fill the woodshed today. Maybe a sign that some FTP gloves are in my future?
