This entry will cover how to make an animal trap in a survival situation. On average 1 out of every 15 good traps will get you a small animal. Good luck surviving!
1. Pocket knife
2. 2 pieces of wood the length of your forearm, diameter of wood should be about the size of your thumb
3. 1 piece of wood the length and a half of your forearm, diameter of wood should be about the size of your thumb
4. Long heavy rock or log
Note: Wood will be easier to cut if gathered from a live tree and not dry.
Step 1: The Main-Stick
Step 2: The Rocking-Stick
Note: It is important that the when the square point of the main-stick fits into the notch that the rocking-stick is able to rock a little back and forth.
Step 3: The Horizontal-Stick
Step 4: The 4
Note: When pressure is applied from above all notches should be secure and self-sustained.
Step 5: The Trap
Note: It's recommended that you place bait on the part of the horizontal stick that is under the rock or log. When an animal bumps the stick under the log the whole trap should fall apart and the poor little guy will get crushed.
