Traps in hunting game

Allows a person to hunt in the wild to provide a game - meat, protein food. Hunt can be as small game, and in the medium and large animals. There are two fundamentally different approaches to the chase: active and passive.

Active hunting implies the existence of weapons (firearms, bows and arrows, sling, the throwing stick, a spear itp) and an active search for prey. Passive hunting is to install on animal trails traps, snares, in which the game itself comes. Today we just talk about the passive hunting on the snare and traps. Subject extensive and extremely interesting.

Traps for large game. Immediately soot, that in the autonomous survival, it makes sense to hunt big game in only two cases: you are not alone, and be able to overpower eat much meat, until it gets messed up, or do you park for a few days and you have the opportunity to save a lot of meat for a long time: salting, smoking, drying, freezing. In all other cases, you should pay attention to the hunt for small and medium game. Because you just do not eat much meat, and even if you kill large animals, most of it disappears - which is not good. Also, catch the big game harder and more dangerous than several small ones.

On the trail, which moves large animal can dig a hole and install a sharp pins on its bottom and top cover up with leaves and branches. However, this method has many disadvantages. First, dig a hole - a complicated matter. Second, if the trap does not work, it is necessary to remove the stakes and fill the hole, so it does not then Guess man or beast, when you leave.

Big game such a good catch. Parallel to the ground at a height of 0.5-1-1.5m, depending on the type of animal, in a split tree is fastened a strong, flexible rod, up to 3-4m thick and with his hand. At the end of it attached 6.4 pegs, carved out of solid branches. Stakes should be directed toward the trail. The branch is pulled in the direction of the path is fixed and the trigger stretch, blocking the path.


When an animal is hurt and stretch, bent branch is straightened, and with great force directs sharp stakes in the body of prey. Very destructive and deadly trap, just on the big game. Such barbaric traps used against U.S. soldiers in the Vietnamese and very successful.

Pitfalls in the middle game. Over the path is set at an angle of a piece of heavy logs. The upper edge of the timber holding the vertical leg, flat stick of medium thickness. To prop binds stretching, across the tracks (the other end fastened to a peg stretch or bush on the other side of the trail). When the animal runs along the trail, he cuts into the stretch, located a few inches above the ground, leg breaks and the whole mass of the beam is incident on the back of game. As a rule, production dies on the spot or at least securely immobilized to your appearance.


Snares for small game. The first option. Take the thick solid stick from a branch and stuck next to an animal trail. From fishing lines, braid, rope, wire loop is self-sealing. Such a trap is set directly across the trail. If the sides of the trail is the bushes, then stretch the edge of snare to them. Or, use two thin branches as props for a loop snare. The animal runs along the path, gets his head in a noose, her tears away, and moving on, tightens noose on the neck.


Such an option is good gin and the average game. Just need a more reliable stick. And the loop snare is laid flat on the trail, catch per game over his leg and hold it in place prior to your arrival.

The second option. Snare loop attached to the end of a long, thin, flexible saplings growing in the trail beast or a specially stuck thread. On the other side of the tracks stuck a small stick with splittable at the top (or other type of fastener). The branch bends, stretches across the loop trail, and the rope just above the hinge jam into place. When the animal enters the snare loop, it runs on, tightens noose and pulls the rope out of a striker. As a result, it appears not only in the loop, but also in the air, as straightened tree throws up prey, often killing it.

All traps and snares must be carefully masked. Animals cautious, noting any changes on the familiar path, they can get wind of something wrong and avoid the trap. In addition, the animals are very well developed sense of smell, so we must try to save her from the trap odors. To do this is to wipe snare moss or grass.

A special trap for squirrels and other small rodents. You need to put a thick piece of a branch at an angle, leaning on a tree trunk. Thus, you shorten the path, and the protein probably run along the branch, rather than down on the trunk. It is always easier and faster to run along the hypotenuse than two legs. On the branch set a snare-loop. Protein enters the loop falls and hangs himself.
