I have decided I want to start trapping and need to know where to start. I would like to buy some books and maybe a video to help me learn but there are so many out there I'm not sure which ones to buy. I am going to try trapping coyotes, fox, and raccoons. I’m an avid deer hunter and have started to see the number of coyotes increase drastically the last 5 years on my hunting land. I’m also worried about the wild turkey population on my property. I’m guessing I’ll be using coil spring traps for the coyotes and fox. What is a good American made trap to buy?

I’ll be trapping In South Carolina.

Thanks for any help.
