Covering nets are used for catching birds with the participation of a catcher. There are automatic tents and donuts. For catching roe deer and deer, coarse mesh cover nets of size 20×20 meters and more, woven from 3-4 mm cords, are known.
Covering nets tents for catching birds, purpose, device, principle of operation, manufacturing, installation and configuration.
Covering nets are stretched on poles horizontally above the ground at a height of 3-4 meters with the help of numerous stretch marks with jumpers equipped with powder charges and explosive devices. All these jumpers are connected by a single wiring to an electric generator that causes a spark. A catcher from the tower observes when animals targeted for capture are under the net and turns on the electric generator. As a result of the spark, all the jumpers instantly explode, burn out and free from stretch marks the network that falls and covers the animals.
Covering nets tents for catching pheasants and partridges, device, principle of operation, manufacturing, installation and tuning.
Pheasants, partridges for winter overexposure are caught with a tent – a simple hiding net in the form of a square with sides of 7-8 meters. This network is knitted with 4×4 cm cells made of kapron threads 0.8-1 mm thick. In a square sewn from such a case, diagonally and between them, cords — extensions — are pulled through 3 mm network cells. In the center of the square at the intersection of the diagonals, a hole with a diameter of 7-10 cm is sewn with a metal ring. A guard and a guard are tied to this ring from two diametrically opposite sides..
In the middle of the feeding platform, to which pheasants or partridges are attached, a 1.5-meter watch stake 5–6 cm thick is driven into the ground. The top of the tent is hung with a hook and stretch pegs are stretched so that the lower sides of the tent (around the perimeter) were above the ground at a height of 20-30 cm. A catcher from the shelter can unhook the tent by pulling off the guard with the help of a long cord tied to it (Scheme a).
The same guard can be used to equip the tent, which is unsettled by the birds themselves who visited the trap. To do this, a cord is tied to the free end of gatehouse (IV) (Scheme b), up to the base of the guard stake, on which a notch is made at a height of 15 cm from the ground. At the level of this notch, under the conditions of a guarded tent, a chalak (an additional gatehouse) is attached to a stretched cord – a stick 10 cm long (II).
The short end of this chelak-guard is abutted on a notch on a watchdog stake, and the free end is lowered and propped up with an opaque floor – a thin tablet or a stick on which a lattice of thin rods is laid (scheme b). Feed is sprinkled on and around this grate. Birds who visited the feeding area, pecking it and running from place to place, step on the grate – floor (I), lowering the guard stick down and thereby freeing the chalak (II), which is turned upside down with a cord and releases the upper gatehouse (III) . The latter, having jumped off the guard stake, frees the top of the net, and tent VI falls down, covering the birds.
Covering nets tents for quail fishing, device, principle of operation, manufacturing, installation and tuning.
Quails are caught with an 8×8 meter light net, connected from a thin green or gray thread with a mesh of 2.5-3.5 cm. From morning until dawn, the catcher goes out into the field and throws the net onto the grass so that the bird can freely enter under her. Then the quail is lured with the help of a decoy or a female quail planted in a cage. When the catcher is convinced that the quail is under the net, the bird is scared away and it gets tangled in the net.
