Hunting without a gun is catching prey on traps and traps. A handmade trap made of improvised means in the forest will help to survive, and during the hunt it will become an additional way of catching game of various dimensions. How to make a trap so that the hunting process is as efficient as possible can be found in the video clip, as well as the information below.
Depending on the type of game, the material and method of making the trap is chosen. For game of small sizes, wire, metal arcs, rings, sticks, and twigs are taken as the basis of the trap, and it is made of fishing line, rope, tendon fibers, etc. For catching large animals traps made of durable materials are used – iron, parachute slings, nylon ropes, canvas, etc.
For hunting for fur animals, there are three groups of samolovov:
- Passage trap
The first group is set on the animal trail. They are of different types, but they are united by a common construction: two connected arcs with a base that hold the limbs of the beast with the help of springs. Trace traps are divided into frame, non-plate and with plate nastorozhka on a direct basis. Plate are used for catching sable, muskrat, marten, beaver, fox. A trap plate with a nastorozhka trap is designed to capture marten.
The tree trap is used mainly for catching squirrels. Its construction consists of a pointed crutch, which is fixed in a tree, the arc goes down, a canopy is installed above it.
Passage traps have other names – humane, pressing. They are characterized by the fact that the beast is killed almost instantly, without much suffering and being dragged. They are used for hunting small and medium animals: muskrats, ermine, squirrels, gopher, ferret, mink, marten, sable, etc. Traps of this type capture the beast not by the limbs, but by the head, neck or torso. At the same time, the valuable fur of the animal is not damaged, since the trap is made of wire of different diameters and do not have sharp corners and protrusions. Installation is carried out on ice, marshes, on trails, in burrows, on trees, in snow at any time of the year. The design and types of feed-through traps are widely represented in the video.
How to make a homemade trap
Homemade trap can be made from scrap materials. Here are some examples:
- Samol bait for boars can be made using a conventional plastic pipe. To do this, in a pipe 150 cm long, 10 cm in diameter, cut several holes and close the edges with lids. The pipe is attached with the help of a thick chain to a post dug into the ground. A bait, such as corn, is poured inside the pipe. The meaning of this trap is to attract the attention of a boar for a few hours for the convenience of shooting him with a gun.
- An ordinary trap can be made of a metal plate with a thickness of 2-3 mm, which must be bent by an arc. The second, the same, cut into the teeth with a hacksaw or scissors for metal. The spring can be removed from the bicycle shock absorber, cut into small pieces. For the gatehouse is made plate of steel plate.
- Ground sables can be used to hunt beaver. To do this, you need to hang it above the ground to a tree or a log (you can drive a peg and tie it to it), and make a snare from a fishing line. At operation of force of a tension the trigger mechanism operates. This method is useful if there is nothing more to hunt at hand.
How to make a trap pass
Before you make a trap type, it is necessary to carefully study the factory model or drawings of this design.
First you need to make springs for it. For this purpose, a wire with a diameter of 3-5 mm and a length of 350-400 mm is used. It must be resistant to the environment, and should not be easily bent. Two springs with rings are manufactured from wire, the internal diameter of which is approximately 20 mm. Then from it are prepared blanks for the frame of the tin. In the finished form, they must be one in the other. Therefore, rectangular blanks for them need to be bent together and cook together. The result should be a structure with a nut or a hollow disk on both sides of its central axis. If the frames are welded correctly, they should fit snugly together in a “worked out” shape.
Then the trap is equipped with springs, suspended nastorozhka. It is necessary to ensure that the trap is triggered when exposed to it both from the front and from the back. Samolov can be installed on the perch, if hunting goes on sable or squirrel.
