Survival Snares: How to Make a Snare Trap

Survival Snares: How to Make a Snare Trap

There are many different types of traps. Low-tech traps, like natural fiber snares and rock deadfalls, abound in survival lore. Modern trappers can enjoy greater success with cable snares, leg hold traps, body grip traps and cage traps.

Showing an EFFECTIVE trigger type is an excellent idea. A suspended animal is far less likely to chew through the snare material...even if it's made of light wire, than if it has all four feet on the ground...the exception being if the snare is a commercially made type with a locking feature on the snare loop.

In my "Survival Woodsmanship" course I ALWAYS recommend a few of these commercially made snares to be kept in one's BOB kit...they are very inexpensive, and take up very little room.

ok, now how do you make the triggers??? would have been nice to see since there are so many ways to make them so one could decide which would be best for them to use. I know of two but neither are to my liking since one in particular is just too touchy and will go off with the slightest breeze undoing hard work setting these things.
