Montana Fisher

Fisher are considered a "furbearing animal" in Montana. Only Montana residents may hunt or trap furbearers, and a license is required.

Trappers must report a Fisher harvest within 24 hours by calling the statewide Fish, Wildlife & Parks reporting line at 1-877-397-9453, and must personally present the pelt for tagging, carcass and skull to a designated FWP employee within ten (10) days after harvest. District seasons will close in 48 hours when a species quota is reached prior to the end of the regular season.

Trapping dates vary by District, as do quotas and methods of trapping. You must check the fwp furbearer regulations before planning to trap or hunt any furbearer, predatory, or nongame animal in Montana to ensure compliance to all regulations. Furbearer Regulations are updated by FWP in mid-August each year.
