How do I make a snare for trapping animals

Report as

Start by analyzing your surrounding by looking for animals on the surrounding and identify the animals that are available for trapping .identify the key areas where the animals are active in like the water hole, place to sleep and place to eat. Drive stake in the ground and tie one end a strand of baling wire around it. Make a loop on the other end of the balling wire, make barriers to drive the animals directly into the snare and cover your scent as animals have strong sense of smell.

Look up a figure 4 trap. It is the simplest and most effective small game trap that you can make yourself out of sticks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKNZIZTLDRc

A figure 4 can also use a basket or box to trap live instead of smashing the critter under a rock.
