Traps and Snares


Make a noose of wire, fishing line, or twine with a free running end so that it can tighten. Place the snare in a narrow point on a path used by the animal. You can use a bent sapling to pull the noose tight: in that case, you also need a trigger mechanism of some sort.

Deadfall traps

These are used to trap larger animals by means of a heavy weight falling.

Rules for traps and snares

! Traps can be very dangerous to humans, including you! Be very careful when setting them, and make sure they are well marked for humans to avoid them. Always dismantle any traps that you find in the veld. These are often set by poachers. They are illegal and cause great suffering to animals. ONLY use traps or snares in a survival situation. Once you have set them, check them regularly, and dismantle them as soon as you are finished with them.
