What are the special tagging requirements for marten and fisher?
When you obtain your trapping license you will be given 25 temporary marten tags and 10 fisher tags. One of these tags must be immediately attached to each marten and fisher at the time you remove the animal from your trap. This temporary tag allows you to keep the marten until you are able to have it officially tagged by the Department. Trappers who are not required by law to have a trapping license (residents under 10 years of age and residents trapping on their own land) may use, in lieu of the official temporary tag, a substitute tag (string tag) on which the name and address of the individual has been clearly written in ink.
