The hardest part of trapping coyotes or any other critter is the time commitment. You have to be able to check your traps every morning, no matter what. Rain, snow, o degrees you have to get up and check those traps.If you know you can't tomorrow than you need to be able to go spring all your traps today, no matter what.
If you can get by that first cryteria the learning is like anything. Once you've seen how to make a couple of basic sets trial and error will fine tune you. It's not hard, it's a process. You can see how to make some basic sets on you tube, just google Coyote Trapping. I have trapped all my life and enjoy teaching anyone who is interested how to trap correctly,legally and ethically. I keep an open invitation on my trap line to educate the young outdoorsmen so there is someone to manage the future wildlife with science and integrity.
I'm in York County and if your willing to travel to me I would be glad to give you a couple of hour crash course. Which will be enough to get you catching coyotes.
