Re: New to trapping. Advice needed.
Welcome to the fraternity RuffedG.
As far as your urine post question, red fox would be the your best choice. Red Fox urine will pull in red and grey fox as well as coyote. Coyote urine will sometimes scare of the foxes.
Check your regulations book that you get with the license. I believe you cannot use real feathers whether it can be seen or not.
I've heard poly-fill works great under trap pans but I've had issues with it. I've tried everything but found a pan screen cover works best for me. You may want to try a couple of things this year to find out what you like. This year will be a great experimental year for me because most fur is dang near worthless.
Speaking of fur prices, things are so bad that Greg Kohl is only doing his pick up route for NAFA on March 5, 2016 on a very shortened route. Plus, NAFA is reporting little to no interest for raccoon and wild mink.
The horizon is your starting point.
