Materials needed to build this trap:
1 straight stick 1 foot long and 1/2 inch diameter.
1 "V" shaped stick with legs that are 10-12 inches long and 3/4 inch in diameter.
1 bait stick that has a side branch coming out that is at least 4-5 inches long.
A young sapling to use as the engine.
Locate a known small game path and assemble the trap in the path as shown in the above diagram.
The baited trigger stick length will be determined on how deep you have to pound the v-stick into the ground. The trigger stick should be at 90 degrees to the long straight stick.
When setting the trigger stick onto the straight stick, leave barely enough edge so that the slightest touch will cause the trigger to release. Also, ensure that the loop of the noose is surrounding the baited trigger and larger enough for the game to enter and get caught.
Set up several of these traps at different game path locations in order to give you a better chance at catching something.
Stay Prepared! Stay Alive!
