We investigated winter activity patterns of American Martens, Martes americana, Snowshoe Hares, Lepus americanus, and Red Squirrels, Tamiasciurus hudsonicus, in westcentral Montana between November 1994 and March 1995 using dual-sensor remote cameras. One hundred percent of Snowshoe Hare (n = 25) observations occurred at night while Martens (n = 85) exhibited random activity during diel and nocturnal hours and Red Squirrels (n = 22) were diurnal. Marten activity coincided with the nocturnal and diurnal rnicrotines and diurnal Red Squirrels though they could take advantage of the strictly nocturnal Snowshoe Hares.
