I would suggest you start with live trapping, to see what kind of animals inhabit your area. You don't want to find your neighbor's dog in a leg-hold trap.

I'm "an all outdoorsman" too, but I don't kill animals with no purpose. Try live trapping and that way you only dispose of the varmints and not unintended victims.

Coons with pet proof foot traps. Go to a good trappers supply online and look for dog proof raccoon traps. The meat is eatable and the fur is useable. The foot traps that catch them will not catch a cat or a dog. It is a good way to start trapping.

I found a really neat book at the libary about homemade traps. I would start with something like this and catch rabbits. Your more likely to eat them than foxes or coons. However, be mindful of your location.
