Great place to order traps is from Minnisota Trapline Products, Tim & Nancy Caven are two of the nicest folks you could do business with their # is 1-320-599-4176 call for a free supply catalog very prompt shipping. Might i suggest ordering a couple 120conibears for mink,muskrats&pinemarten about 4 1.5 coils for coon,fox,mink a couple 220-conibears for coon,fishers check w/state regs. before setting 220s on land and 4 #3 size traps for coyotes, i emphisize this size trap for coyotes because i specialize in coyote trapping, yes you can hold a coyote in a 1.75 but a 6.5inch jawspread is a bigger target area use steel screen for pancovers, the best coyote trappers in the country advocate using a #3size trap Craig O Gorman, Slim Pederson, Clint Locklear just to name a few, also order a couple how to books on the species your targeting i could go on forever so feel free to pm me i could help out with some extra traps i would donate you to help get you started for payment i ask that when you become a proficient trapper that you help out someone else getting started trapping, we need future trappers or else there wont be anyone left to defend our sport.

like you Im a beginner, I dont trap a whole lot of land, just a bit around my hunting shack until I get better.

I had success by using some 110's, I dig a little hole under the water, then cover it up with a bit of muck/weeds, then I use wire anchors in the bank. I take a whole can of sardines, crack it and pour out some of the oil out around the site, (i reuse the tin over again). then I stick the tin in a whole on the bank. If the tin gets old I open it up and mix the sardines with some fish oil an start again until its gone.

first time I got a coon and 2 muskrat in one nite, 3 of the 5 traps produced for me. I kept them about 50-75yds apart.

Its alot of fun.

Good luck

Dave

just don't ask any question or you will be ripped to shreds from the know it alls that know nothing over there . Personnally I wouldn't recommend that site to anyone thats wanting to get into trapping or is a trapper, there are better sites out there.

this is a far better site to go to, to learn about trapping, and its made for the beginner .

I was wondering if it would be worth my while to skin taxidermy style for what i get, if i could get more selling stuff to taxidermists than to fur market, assuming i catch some critters of course.
