just looking for some help on construction of some pine martin boxes for traps. I've seen on videos a "v" shaped box attached to trees with what looks like a 110 body grip attached at the very end. If this is ok does anybody have any dimensions fro this. Also the martin must be sealed but if I read the rules correct I need to bring the entire animal to DEC before skinning?? is this right. thanks were new to this and just trying to get everything correct.
The pine marten carcass (after skinning) must be turned in when you get your pelt sealed. When you get your marten permit before the season, you'll find 6 carcass tags as well as the furbearer possession tags. Lots of paperwork, but it's so DEC can gather information about the animals. 120 boxes should be 6"x6" at the mouth, I make mine about 10-12" deep.
