Hunting includes a number of types: hunting beast, fish, birds… therefore, there are a lot of equivalent methods for each type. Today we will introduce to you 5 easiest types of trap but effective. For each type, you will get to know about how to design the trap and what to note to perfect your hunting plan.
- Noose trap for trapping climbing animals
There are many small animals like squirrels, kangaroos, koalas, porcupines, monkeys, reptiles… that belong to climbing animals. There are a large number of those animals and their meat is also very good. This climbing type rarely climbs down to touch the ground in order not to be trapped so we have to design noose trap in high position right on the tree to trap them.
We use the creeper hard enough to self – configure the noose but also soft enough to be able to self – tighten. Naturally, there are such many creepers such as rattan rope, flax, vine… or any kind of forest wire, metal wire as long as they have similar properties that you can find out.
Use a smooth trunk that was cut off all the leaves to cross the big tree where many animals live. This type of trunk is really favoured to climbing animals such as squirrels, kangaroos as it makes the climbing trees much simpler. So we are able to catch them on the trunk with a series of nooses. When they go through the trunk with a noose, they will be trapped. If they try to struggle, they will slip and be dangled.
One thing that is quite interesting is that though squirrels find their fellow to be hung, they cannot recognize the trap and continue coming into it without paying attention to. Therefore, we can arrange a lot of noose to be able to catch more animals on the same trunk.
- Bird – trap
In areas such as swamps, ponds you should arrange simple bird traps Ojibwa to trap types of bird that come there to look for food. They usually like to pass on the wood or horizontal trunk to rest and we can make use of this to design a trap specified as follows.
- One wooden stick is connected to a loose wire piercing through one key then is tied to one plastic stick to create a counter force.
- The bird when passing on the stick will make the peg vibrate and it cannot hold the stick. The plastic stick immediately pulls the wooden stick through the peg and also pulls the wire arranged below to catch the feet of the bird. If the counter force is too strong, it can break the bird’s feet.
Another way we can use is using a moderate trunk trimmed half then bending it down and fixing it with a peg, tying a wire to the peg with one side tightened to be a noose and put on the tree bark. We can leverage the noose by clinging one near trunk and tie the other end of the noose; note that consider enough power to not pull the peg. When the bird stands on the bark, the peg will be loosen as the bark is no longer fixed. It will pull the noose and tighten the bird’s feet.
- Grid – trap
If you can create a grid then you ought to design the grid in the position to catch the bird like this:
- The bottom of the grid should be placed a little low so that when falling down, the bird flaps wildly and easier to be entangled.
How to make this type of trap is not too difficult. You can combine different types and use baits or camouflage with leaves to increase efficiency of trapping.
- Overriding trap
This is a quite effective trap for small and medium animals. These animals are intelligent and healthy so though they are overridden, they are able to escape. So your task is to make the force as strong as possible. You can use a large heavy rock, let one bottom touch the ground and the other one be kept high in the air; use a hard stick to be a shelf for the rock. However, you have to disguise this stick so that the animals cannot recognize that is a trap. When the animal run into or just touch, lean on the stick and make it out of the firm position then the rock collapses to override the animal. It will be trapped and you succeed.
- Pig spear shaft
This is a very dangerous trap so when you decide to use it, take care. With a counter force powerful enough, the spear can skewer through any small animals such as pigs, foxes passing by and pin them into the opposite tree. Usually, the prey will die straight away. Note that the spear must be very sharp, pointy to be able to kill the animal but when bring it, you have to be careful to avoid the case that it will touch any part of your body, it’ll cause you wound.
The 5 types of trap above may help you to hunt a lot of animal types. Before you go hunting, it does not take much time but is very important to determine what type of prey you are going to catch and make a specific plan of trapping to get highest efficiency and avoid counter results.
