That's a tough one, coyotes and bobcats are just about a tie, but if I had to choose it would be cats, no wait coyotes, no wait cats...dang, I can't decide!

Cats , but if It were legal I would love to trap a bear

Also if it were legal I'd like to trap a thief using a bear trap

Not sure I can pick just one.

I sure do envy those guys who rack up piles of mink and muskrat... Both are rare here.

If they existed in good numbers here... Marten.

I do have good numbers of beaver and coyotes here. Decent cat numbers too... Hard to narrow that list down to just one.

Still can't decide. Lol

Fox... if I lived in MD or PA.

If not, I'd have to with coyotes, even though it would break my heart not to trap otter. frown

I have to say coyotes. Just about everything else will show up in a couple set so yes I have to say coyotes!

Money cannot buy you happiness, buy it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Due to the numbers right now.... and almost always.. it would have to be coyotes. Love to catch them kitties, but they would not last long if everyone targeted only them. We just don't have that many. Coyotes offer a self satisfaction feeling that you can be proud of. A job well done is you can outsmart a few.

I got into trapping to thin out coyotes, but now I think it would be really hard for me to choose. Very few animals give me the satisfaction that I get from catching an old male yote, but I really have a soft spot for cats and fisher now, but we are only allowed one fisher and three cats in our state.

If I were to trap for money, it would probably be coon even though the market is in the tank. Coon is what we have the biggest population of, and the majority of the coon in our area go 2x or bigger. If we had a better muskrat population, I would say rats for sure, but I think coon is the best bet to turn a profit in our state even at $6 for a 2x.

As much as I like catching coyotes. Beaver would be my pick, just the beauty of nature they live in from swamps to bogs to little streams. Plus nothing like walking up and seeing a big Old beaver waiting for you. Plus good eating.

Wolves. They irritate me, and that's never a good thing to do.
