Welcome to WAT ST, there are a few trappers on the Forum near your area. Try reposting your question on the Camp Fire or Trap Line section. :wink:

Hey there Sothern, I trap up in Rockingham county. Some tips and pointers...... we have lots of fox and coon, snares have worked best for me, trap along fence rows next to cattle pastures or cut corn/soybean fields, scout before you place steel or snares it helps to set on the area where they travel, as a first year I only used snares and did pretty well...setting steel takes more "skill" and time

thats all I got for now, hope it helps :D Let me know if you have any other questions, I will try my best to answer them
