Well since I mostly trap canines and only fair at that, I would love to take a crack at wolves but I've also always had a hankering to trap a bear in a big old double long spring but it seems those days are long gone unfortunately.

I would have to say Lynx.They have the softest and thickest fur of all the animals.
Nothing like a big pile of puffy lynx pelts in the Fur shed.

Beaver, I love being in their habitat. Most people will never experience what it's like being in the middle of the swamp with no one else around.

Marten, with wolverine, wolves, and lynx close seconds for Alaska. For Florida it's bobcats.

I would say beaver. There's just something about a calm morning when the sun is rising through the trees and over the pond as you paddle to check your traps

I'd have to go with grinners, they're the fastest animal on earth and very elusive and you can't over trap em.

If I could only trap one animal? I think I'd quit, it would get boring.

Salt marsh muskrats, and here's why.
I made some serious money doing it.
I never suffered from being outsmarted by a wily one.
They are a dream to put up.
Sometimes I just want a brainless day without hustle and bustle and stress. Rat trapping is just the ticket for that.
