Caught 2 more marten this check. One where I caught the first one of the year, and the second at a set where I caught one last year. Also had one trap snapped but no fur. Went back to the cabin and skinned all three according to instructions I found doing it head first. Worked pretty well, and glad to have it done. Now need to make some stretchers.

Weather looks like it’s coming up after tomorrow, so will probably have to go and pull the line tomorrow or might not be able to get back over before I leave for start of winter work on the slope. It’s been about 40 during the days and all the snow was gone in the woods. Lots and lots of tracks on the beach where we got the last deer of the season last week, and the scat looked like the deer had been eating sea weed.
