So, this fall, I'm going to try trapping for the 1st time. I've been reading up on anything I can find about it, to try and get a better idea as to what I'm going to be doing. I was wondering if any of y'all had any advice youd like to pass along that maybe you wish you were told when you were just starting out.

What are you trapping for? I used to help my father trap. He trapped for ***** and muskrats. He used to cook his traps in a vat full of walnuts before the season. Yes the whole walnut. After he got **** hounds we stopped trapping.

Mostly **** and coyote. The area I hunt has a huge coyote population, and I dont think anyone there hunts them.

Last time I was involved in any type of trapping is when my wife trapped me into marriage.
Must have been one heck of a trap, going on 27 years now.

Normally I would strongly advise against using leg traps. Mostly because they can break a varmint's leg, and if you happen to catch the neighbor's dog/cat/child., it can royally piss off a neighbor. Another thing, if you leg trap a ****, rabbit, etc., they will cry out in pain and terror, which may bring in coyotes for a free meal. Unless you want to attract coyotes to your neighborhood, I wouldn't use leg traps.
