Survival Snare





Introduction: Survival Snare

Easy instructions how to make a simple snare that can be used in a survival situation.

WARNING... this should only be used in a survival situation. It is illegal to trap game animals without a license.

Step 1: Materials

All you'll need is:

-a knife
-a stick (see pic.)
-some string

Step 2: Making the Snare

Take the string and fold one end over about an inch and a half. Now tie the the folded part in a lose overy-undery knot and thread the opposite end of the string through the hole. Tighten the knot so the string isn't falling through.
Then take the stick and sharpen the end of it and make a notch on the opposite end.
Tie the snare to the stick with the string in the notch to hold it in place.

Step 3: Seting Up

Find a well used trail (look for a long line where no plants are growing and the leaves are packed down) and look for a place that creates a natural funnel.
Drive the pointed end of the stick into the ground (make sure its deep or it wont hold).
Poke some small sticks into the ground and use them to keep the loop open, then poke some more sticks into the ground around the trap so animals cant go around it.

    Does this trap work great?

    hate to tell you gecko hiker but the reason cow and buffalo survive off of greens only so well is they have completely different digestive multiple process areas and fermintation to gain the full benefits from greens only.

    If you are a vegan and never eat or wear any animal products, I highly respect your opinion and choice. If not, you're a hypocrite and just let other do the killing for you...

    Well I'm not sure about my shoes but I try to avoid animal products... I'm a vegetarian not a vegan, I'll eat eggs and milk, no fish though. It's completely immoral to kill.

    eggs are undeveloped baby birds

    No, we only eat un-fertilised eggs, the fertilised eggs contain chicks, un-fertilised eggs are pooped out when not fertilised by a cockrel.

    Technically if they're taken before anything starts then they'd only BECOME birds... it's not really killing them since they never lived in the first place. I don't eat eggs too much anyways for that very reason but sometimes I will... Milk isn't too bad though.

    Thats like saying that abbortion isn't killing a baby because it wasn't born so it hadn't lived yet.

    It is killing the baby. In the egg though, it doesn't develope, just has the potential to. If you get the egg before it develops AT ALL then it's fine since there was nothing there. I see what you're saying, and that's why I don't eat them alot.
