    your best bet would either be coons or muskrats. for the coons i would use a 220 in a bucket for land and a #11 foothold for water trapping. muskrats can also be trapped with #11 footholds and 110 conibears.

      I wouldn't use a 220 in a bucket, I've seen and heard of dogs getting caught in that set. Coons probably are the easiest to catch legholds on land work, I like #2 longspring or 1 1/2 double coil spring around a dead deer. This way you can catch a lot more species, just set 2 of your traps close enough that you can get a double catch on a coyote or something like that. Some states don't let you set close to dead animals though so check your state regs. In minnesota with all the water bodys you might check into beaver also, a 330 set in the water works well for them.

            if u have legal perimiision on a persons property u have the right to place any trap u like as long as they follow state regs. if a dog gets caught in it and u have permission from the landowner they have no case against you. i trap with mostly bucket cubies and this has happened to me with house cats. its legal as long as you have permission on the property you have placed the trap. and by the way most cases you see on the news about dogs being killed by traps but they were illegal trapped by 330's placed on land. so i would recoomand bucket cubies im 16 years old and have my trapping business and average over 150 coons a year.

              Beaver. If its legal in your state to alter th dams. I tear out the dams and put a 330 size conibear in the place that is torn out. But be careful if you catch something illegal, it WILL KILL the animal that gets trapped.

                I would say squirrels... all you need is some peanuts, a bucket, some string, and a stick. Good luck!

                    Raccoons. I could catch one every night in a live trap if needed to.

                      Most Tomahawk Live Traps are manufactured with adjustable trigger release mechanisms and brass rollers. This makes them easy to set and adjust. By adjusting the trigger, a single trap can be used to trap several different sizes of animals. For trapping heavier animals, set for heavy sets, and for trapping smaller animals, set for light sets!!!

                        Raccoons are one of the easiest animals to catch.
