Transcript

  • 1. Traps and Snares Survival Advanced CUO Tonya Gentry-Brown Mar 2011 Image taken from: weaponscombat.com SVA 2
  • 2. Objectives
    • SVA 2 Traps and Snares
    •  
    • Describe the assembly of the following traps and snares:
    • Simple latch/pin and trigger
    • Platform
    • Pit
    • Figure 4 and Fish traps.
  • 3. Introduction
    • Need food to maintain strength
    • Best type of food is meat
    • Having the ability to catch means living off land
    • Anything is a source of food
  • 4. Successful Hunting and Trapping
    • Set up base camp
      • Study made of conditions and habits.
    • Looking for good sites
      • Animals usually follow defined trails
      • Some small animals use same toilet stops (but need to ensure you do not disturb area)
      • Study eating habits ( usually regular times of the day)
  • 5. Common Animal Tracks
  • 6.  
  • 7. Emergency Survival
    • Your survival is your only priority
    • Make yourself think and act like a predator
    • Use camouflage and concealment skills
      • Move carefully
      • Use wind to your advantage
      • Disguise your human scent
  • 8. Construction Materials
    • Can be made from all natural materials
    • Good habit to keep a few things in your survival kit
      • Wire noose
      • Fish hooks
    • Selecting Timber
      • Green and springy (provides flexibility and won’t snap easily)
  • 9. Simple Rules for Traps and Snares
    • Human/foreign scents
      • Handle trap as little as possible (wear gloves)
      • Use nearby timber
      • Camp fire smoke and/or animal dung will disguise human scent
    • Disturbing the Environment
      • Prep away from trap site
      • Do not tread on trail or dung
      • Cover any sign you’ve been there
  • 10.
    • Camouflage
      • Blend traps into surroundings
      • Cover any freshly cut ends of saplings ( w/ mud or droppings)
    • Strength
      • Trapped animal will be fighting no matter how small
      • Use all of its energy
      • Traps need to be stronger than the animal intended (no second chance if it escapes)
  • 11. Types
    • Most traps will kill animal quickly and as humanely as possible (don’t be mislead by the trap name)
    • Some devices may seem savage but your survival is important
    • Generally fall into 4 categories
      • Strangle (loops and snares)
      • Mangle (deadfall)
      • Tangle (net)
      • Hold (pit or cage)
  • 12. Baiting Traps
    • Test bait an area
      • Select varied types of bait
      • Set them on low stakes
      • About 3 feet apart
      • Leave overnight (check in morning )
    • Investigation of stomach contents will also inform you of eating habits
  • 13. Suggested Baits
    • Root or insects (earth digging)
    • Flesh (carnivorous)
    • Insects, Feed or Fruit (birds or tree feeding)
    • Herbage (grazing)
    • Worms, Grubs or Insects (fish)
    • Use very small portions of your emergency rations – chocolate is strange and attracts game
  • 14. Simple Latch
    • Most commonly used w/ twitch up snare
    • Consist of 2 sticks (notched at 1 end)
    • 1 stick anchored to ground, other fixed on noose
    • Notch ends fit as illustrated
  • 15. Pin and Trigger Mechanism
    • Consists of 3 small hardwood sticks
    • 2 pins driven into trunk (horizontal to ground)
    • Trigger stick tied to mangle or snare type trap – fits under 2 pins
    • Trigger held against 2 pins until released by trip wire
  • 16.  
  • 17. Latch/Pin and Trigger
    • Triggering device
    • Usually consist of noose, spring and trip wire/stick
    • Baited or unbaited
    • Examples:
      • Simple Snare
      • Twitch-up Snares
      • Baited toggle release snare
      • Unbaited spring snare
      • Baited double spring snare
  • 18. Simple Snare
    • Loop dragged over game trail, tied to strong shrub (or tie to drag pole)
    • Strangles game
  • 19. Twitch-up Snares
    • Using natural springiness of sapling (lift catch off ground away from predators)
    • Sapling looped, bent and fixed release mechanism (simple latch is effective)
    • 3 types
      • w/ simple latch release mechanism
      • w/ pin and trigger mechanism
      • Hanging snare
  • 20. Simple Latch Release
  • 21. Pin and Trigger
  • 22. Hanging Snare
  • 23. Baited Toggle Release Snare
    • Baited stick wedged against bottom of toggle
    • Top of toggle attached by line to springy sapling (under tension) and hooked under retaining bar
    • When bait stick is moved, toggle releases and flies up taking snare with it.
  • 24.  
  • 25. Unbaited Spring Snare
    • Activated by animal struggle
    • Consists of 2 uprights w/ rounded notches holding a noose stick
    • Tensioned line angled away from noose stick
  • 26. Baited Double Spring Snare
    • Uses stiff wire nooses
    • Normally sited along a game trail (trap small carnivores or pigs)
    • 2 saplings notched to fit
    • Bait bar latched to one of them
    • Bait is taken, saplings spring apart, animal suspended between
  • 27.  
  • 28. Platform Trap
    • Consists of platform made from sticks or bark
    • Triggering device similar to the double spring snare
    • Best placed in depression in ground (either game trail or feeding area)
    • Designed to catch animal by the leg
  • 29.  
  • 30. Pit Trap
    • Hole in ground
    • Usually dug across game trail
    • Covered w/ natural material
    • Animal falls in and can’t get out
    • Bottom can be staked (impaled and killed)
    • Or staked around side to trap in
    WARNING : all pits traps should be marked in some way. They work on humans just as well.
  • 31. OR
  • 32. Figure 4 Deadfall
    • Triggering device resembling number 4
    • Consists of bait stick
    • Notched at right angle into an upright
    • Locking bar (45 degree angle) – support deadfall
    • Cage may be substituted (but must be heavy enough to prevent escape)
  • 33.  
  • 34. Fish Trap
    • Drum or Basket
      • Useful in fresh or salt water
    • Damming & Netting
      • Small flowing river and creeks
  • 35. Conclusion
    • You should now be able to identify and describe the assembly of common traps and snares
