Trap-Door Deadfall

Trap Door Deadfall
The material used for this deadfall was the stalk from the yucca plant. Once the platform is set into place as shown in the above picture, more weight is added on top. The weight should be around 20-30 lbs depending on the type animal that may be in the area.

The horizontal trigger stick should be covered lightly with leaves or grasses and bait placed on top of that.  The trap should be set up on a game trail that appears to be used frequently.

Smaller branches or grasses can be set up on the sides of the trap door leaving a small archway for game to walk into.  Also, small stick spikes can be added to the trap door to increase the effectiveness of the kill.

High or gusty winds will set this trap off inadvertently, so try and set it up in a place out of the wind if possible.

Stay Prepared! Stay Alive!
