Observed in elk camp. It was chasing a rabbit near camp and ultimately into camp. Rabbit came down and stood directly between his legs to escape. The fisher was solid black and larger than the rabbit and came within 20 feet of him. He called me to verify species because his hunting buddied told him it was likely a marten. But he thought it was a fisher, even though he had never seen one, and called me to verify the sighting. After visiting with him about the account, I believe he had a credible fisher sighting.

Alison Creek. I believe he was up the first fork to the left, and camped at a wide spot before the hard switch back to the right. But I am not certain which switch back and the exact location.
