Hey everyone, New to trapping and know nothing about it, here to learn a little. I first got interested in trapping after seeing coyotes sitting next to my chicken coop and finding my ducks and chickens headless. So my first question is, should I jump straight to coyote trapping or start small? Is there a trapper education course here in louisiana? Can you buy traps from say bass pro? Any suggestions on traps to but? I'll be interested in skinning for the fur as well so info on that would be great too.

I'm new to the craft myself (just started researching, own nothing, hungry to learn) and after talking with WLF there are currently no trapping courses offered in Louisiana. In fact there haven't been in a number of years.
If we were never meant to eat small furry animals, why did God make them out of such yummy meats?
Hello/ welcome to trapping: So my first question is, should I jump straight to coyote trapping or start small? Get right to it, grab a few books (they are cheap and worth the time) No reason not to. Is there a trapper education course here in louisiana? No, but if you call local office (WLF) or one near you someone there will prolly be happy to help you out with a little sit down. Very nice folks. Can you buy traps from say bass pro? Yes Any suggestions on traps to but? Victor is nice, Duke is ok, some folks make their own. I'll be interested in skinning for the fur as well so info on that would be great too. Books will help out with that
