The Paiute Deadfall is an Indian trap used for catching or killing small game.
Please don't abuse this knowledge, don't be an idiot and kill without reason.
you can use this type of trap with a box or crate instead of a deadfall and simply catch the animal.
this trap is better than the figure 4 deadfall because is is easier to set, has a more sensative trigger, and your hands are safer when setting it.
