You have to become very observant and remember or mark it. Even though it is not the same Lynx, Wolverine, Fox, Marten, Fisher or Wolf, they use the same routes.
Over time that is why some trappers are so much better than new trappers.
Over our 6 years here, we know that that ridge is were the Fishers cross and so we do not put a Marten set near there. We do not intentionally go after Fishers. We sometimes get one a year down near the River but there are lots down there.
Lynx also are always found in certain areas. You have to find the large Rabbit populated areas.
The Wolves know all their travel routes. When they separate they all know the meeting spots. They know they are heading up off that lake. down that pass, then over to that River and up it and so and so and so. When you see the packs tracks over on Walkers Valley you know they are heading thru the pass down towards the lower Taku River. They do the same thing once or twice a winter. They always check out that certain Beaver pond. Down near the Rivers you can see the Wolves always check out the active side bank Beavers...
Marten like to pass on the narrows where there are lots of trees on both sides. You very seldom see their tracks why out in an open spot. The hawks and Owls are waiting. On rivers there are area of 100 ft to 150 ft where the Marten cross. Then miles where no Marten tracks are seen.
If you see Marten tracks put your box there. There are areas where we only see female Marten tracks and so no boxes are placed any where near that crossing.
Wolverine always travel on one side of the lake here. Down near Windy Pond there is a Wolverine crossing and so it goes on and on. You have to be observant. We use different flagging tape to remind us if it is a hard spot to remember.
