It's been a while for trapping. need direction

My dad used to trap alot when he were younger and i guess i should of paid a lot more attention to what he did lol

i moved recently into an area where i have around 1.5 acres of land (not much) and a stream that runs down the road by my driveway. i've seen some of the biggest coon in a long time and i want to make a couple sets but i am unsure of where i can find a regulation to see if i am legal or not.

i cannot find in the digest how far away i have to be from a neighbors house or anything like that. im up to speed on the regulations and plan on using 1 or 2 of my size 1 duke coilsprings along the creek. my traps are labeled with a tag on my information and can easily check it every morning before work or after work.

can someone explain my distance from a home question or point me to where i can get the answer? i'd love to start small with running 1 trap to start and see how it goes..

ive been getting fox with the rifle but want to venture into trapping like my pops used to

thanks and good luck i appreciate the help
