Your intro pics are good, almost like a diagram. I might have to try this, you have my vote.

That would be a figure four deadfall--a "snare" is usually a noose made of wire.

Agreed. However, it's an excellent deadfall!

Nice idea. I think your Instructable could use some more description at each step, otherwise, great photos!

Hey thanks for commenting I wasn't really going to make an instructable but I just wanted to show you how it works and how to make it Like were you put your notches and how deep to make them depends on your choice of sticks and rock.
