Fox of both kinds if we had good numbers of them but since we dont probably coyotes, would say cats buy since we dont have many wouldnt get many catches in a season

Beaver first, good quantities of them, large pelts to make anything you need from hats to blankets, the meat is edible if handled properly and cooked well and every part of the beaver is sellable (except guts)and they are just plain fun to trap. I would love to trap wolves also.

Coyotes . When i started out in ADC work I trapped = beaver,fox,coon, opossum, and coyotes. All ways HATED beaver trapping. Clients always wanted it done in heat of summer. I came so close to being bit my cotton mouths MANY times. Lucky for me I have found several people in to QDMA that only care about removing coyotes and saving fawns. I LOVE CATCHING coyotes!

For me, I really like fisher trapping. However, it isnt a huge challenge where I am. Just a matter of how many you want.

Other than that, likely beaver, just because its a bit more of a challenge.

If I was limited to only one though, I dont know if I would trap. I love all of it. From the challenge of footholds for canines, to snaring fox,...I love otter in crossovers, muskrats are fun, Beaver under ice are an awesome challenge, especially when you need to get 30, 50, 100 a year for quota here in Canada. Even snaring rabbit in winter. Seeing that first fisher in a 160. Even a coon in a trap excites me. I feel like only one animal would suck in a big way!

For me, it would be a spotted up cat. Seeing as I've never caught one, none here in my area, I may have to take a road trip next fall so I can.

Without question, for me, Adirondack Fisher. Unfortunately our DEC has mismanaged this species and their numbers in the Adirondacks are greatly decreased from yesteryear.

I have caught all the beaver and otter I want.
If I had to pick one It would be rats.

Since I was a boy, I went trapping with my dad and he always let me set a few weasel traps. I still enjoy trapping them. But, since they're not really worth anything much, I won't trap them.

If I could only catch one animal all the time, it would be fox, grey or red. If I had the chance to trap an animal one time that Ive never trapped before, Id have to say bear, but just a smidge above trapping a wolf.
