Table 1 Summary of 21 collar deployments for 9 fishers (Pekania pennanti) in the southern Oregon Cascades. Fisher ID is the unique identification assigned to each individual fisher with IDs beginning with F indicating females and beginning with M indicating males. Deployment indicates the season and year of the collar deployment. In 2016 there were two deployments during the summer, early summer deployments in 2016 (e.g beginning in late June) are indicated with the suffix “a” (Summer 2016a) and late summer deployments (e.g beginning in late August) are indicated with the suffix “b”. Number of fix attempts is the total length of the time series. Fix rate is the percent of the times series for which a GPS location fix was successful. Fix interval is the programmed interval at which GPS fixes were attempted. Average apparent step length (and standard deviation) were calculated based on observed step lengths (Euclidean distance) between successive successful fix attempts
