This is one of my fravorite traps, simple and effective. It also help me a couple years ago during an ice storm around 40 trees fell on my mile long drive way no electric or any source of heat but we did have an endless supply of pigeons and doves :) there pretty good when you have no food in the house

Something tells me the nutria in your area are about to start a group effort to take out celltowers and keep you off the interwebs. :p

Some folks buy meat. Some folks kill meat. Still, others sell meat.

Five bucks per tail and tasty. Who the hell gets PAID to EAT such sweet, succulent, clean meat?

This guy, soon, that's who!!!!

It can be very challenging but very rewarding. They best time to start is winter right after it snow find tracks and follow to the burrow for small game and set traps along its path animals will generally follow the same path to food or water. Let me know what type of game is heavy in your area and I can help you from there. The first picture is a bird trap, the plan with this trap is when a bird perchs on the stick its body weight makes the stick fall from underneath it releasing the rock, the rock falls and pulls the snare tight it will usually snag the birds leg. But just let me know what all animals you have in your area

Pigeons, squirrels, possum, and nutria. Help a brother out? I be's howngry.

And is there any way to keep skunks out of the snare? We have a lot of those, and I actually had a nightmare about one a few nights ago. They don't scare me, but good lord they stink...

I've made quail traps out of chicken wire but never used brush to do it. Is there a way to do that/or have you ever made one?
