How to Build a Tree Spring Noose Trap

I like turning boring things into awesome things! Usually on video.

Intro: How to Build a Tree Spring Noose Trap

SUBSCRIBE ;)

This video shows how to build a trap using only what is found in the forest and a bit of string. Perhaps in a later video I will show how to make string/rope out of forest materials.

For now, enjoy. More videos are coming.

    awesome. I've always wanted to learn to make one of these. Just an idea, if in an area without small springy trees and you happen to have a fiberglass pole from a small dome tent. Might be used instead ? I'll have to try it out.

    Or if you have two trees close to each other, you could use a Spanish windlass to provide the "yank."

    Yes. A longer rope with a counterweight may also be used. Check out my youtube channel for more trap videos.

    Just information for anyone wanting to use this, It is illegal in Most (if not all) states of the U.S. to HUNT with any type of game snare UNLESS you are in a survival situation. I am not an expert on state laws, so I suggest checking your local laws before setting these up to catch a wascally wabbit

    excellent video, i used this type of trap to catch a groundhog the other day. it was very effective (i used a counter weight though).

    I might would point the two forks the other way. Where they point in there's a small chance they might snag loop while going up. Don't think it would affect operation of snare, would it?

    I made one one time, but it was with a bigger tree and was pretty powerful, the trigger accidentally slipped and I caught my arm, it kinda hurt. I've made some this size, a different less sensitive mechanism, but they still worked good.

    Cool just went and made one works great. even if the sticks aren't perfect and are all bent it works. +5 and i appreciate it. wish there was a way to make it so the animal doesn't have to hang and suffer..
