- Trap, steel wire
Find rabbit trail, it is most convenient to set the trap. Walk along trails, finding a place where the rabbit jumps over the obstacle or find a hole.
Install a trap on the trail, carefully camouflaged. If the light trap, tie him to the goods or attach it to the tree.
If the snow had hardened and covered with a crust, hares move and without trails. In this case, set the trap with bait. It could be the aspen, the willow branches, a tuft of hay. Can hang the hay at a low altitude, right over a trapand there to scatter small pieces of hay. The hare will pick up the pieces, and noticed the dangling bait, trying to get it, and then inevitably find yourself in a trap.
Try to replace the conventional trap trap in the form of a loop. Catching the hare on the loop has a lot in common with the procuring hare traditional trap. Compared to trap loops have the advantage because they are lighter, easy to carry, very cheap and usually more efficient.
Fabricate a loop of soft annealed wire. The softer the wire, the more reliable it will trap. Too tight a loop will allow the animal to get out, or work loose, besides, it will be more difficult to install. Annealing wire spend the whole skein, then cut it into pieces one metre in length. Ready loop roll into circles with a diameter of about 10 cm and put on a thicker wire (for easy carrying).
Finding a rabbit trail, remove the piece of wire with a ring on the end, gently straighten, stretching it between your fingers, then bend into a circle. The free end of the thread through the ring on the other end of the wire.
Near the trailhead look for a flexible tree with a diameter of about 5 cm and firmly attach it to the loose end of the loop. Loop place strictly perpendicular to the direction of the trail. Loop shape should be rounded or in the form of an ellipse. The diameter of the loop should be 23-28 cm Loop diameter is too small and the hare is usually passes. The lower part of the loop should be located at a height of 15-20 cm above the snow level.
Picking a place to install such a trap lying on the trail find a tree or a small groove, through which the hare jumps. Alert loop should be where left a trail from the front legs of the animal leaped.
Advice 2: How to trap a beaver
When setting traps for beaver and fishers have long used the peculiarities of behavior of the animal. The fact that the beavers almost always to restore the destroyed dam. To the beaver swam to the dam and began to build, only need to partially destroy the structure, lowering the water level in the dam.
You will need
- A trap, a wooden stake, rope
Find beaver made a dam and break it, so that the water level has fallen by 10-20 see Wait for the fall of water is required in order to set a trap at the desired depth.
Prepare a wooden stake with a length of about two meters. On a solid surface, set the trap on the maximum level of hardness (for security). Retreat from the shore half a meter and beat count. Choose to stake more dense soil. A stake so that the beaver didn't run into him, otherwise he can chew and use for repair of the dam. To the bottom of the stake, tie a rope with a length of 1,7-2 m. Mask the lower part of the peg silt to make it invisible.
Install the trap completely. Keep the spring in the direction towards each other. The trap along with the springs should resemble a horseshoe. The installation depth of the trap is 40-50 cm. At lower depths, the animal may touch the trap with your belly.
Now tip off the trap more sensitive. Take the trap from the bottom (this will save your fingers from shock in case of accidental triggering of the trap) to stand was located on palm and fingers on the arcs shrink the arc. Take a plate down, leaving minimal hook Lodge.
Nastorozhit trap, gently take it over the edge of the springs and install at the bottom of the reservoir. When setting the trap keep the bed to yourself.
Provide camouflage for the trap. Take a bit of silt and vzmutit over the set trap. The settled slurry will cover the trap and will prevent the device work. Try to keep the trap has not got leaves, grass, small twigs, as they can trigger the trap empty.
When checking the trap, keep in mind that the dam time can be restored by others beaverand this can increase the water level; the trap in this case will be deeper than you think. To check, use a long stick with a knot, having it in the place where there should be a cable.
Advice 3: How to set a snare for a rabbit
Traditionally, traps are a minor hunting guns. In the first place, of course, hunting with rifle and dog, but sometimes to get the game without the use of traps or snares is not possible, so the animal cautiously and secretly. Furthermore, the use of snares helps to preserve the skins of fur-bearing animals.
Snares and loops is a portable device whose operation is to capture the neck, body or limbs of an animal or bird by a loop of a belt, wire or strong twine. The loop holds the captured animal in place or smothers it. This way you can catch a wide variety of game – from squirrels to bears.
The snare can be put vertically (the animal enters the loop head or torso) or horizontally (in loop gets a limb of the beast). Place traps on animal trails near his hole, in places of power.
The loop on the hare make of soft iron wire with a cross section of 0.6-1.1 mm (best suited annealed steel wire). Take a length of 1-1,5 m at the most. One end twist into a ring with a diameter of 5-8 mm. Secure it by twisting the short wire end around long. Now the other end of the wire pass into the ring so to get a loop no more than 20 cm in diameter. A snare ready.
Setting snares in the winter, ensure that they do not touch the snow cover. The lower part of the loop should be at a distance of 10-15 cm from the surface. The free end of the loop will spin in the small ring and additionally tie him to a sturdy rope or twine for attaching the hinges to the trunk of the tree, which must be located near a rabbit trail.
The main loop end fold and crimp around the tree trunk so that the loop hung over the trail. Thus the hare will get to the loop head or upper body. He tries to jump, and the noose immediately tightened. Sudden movement of the beast will cause the loop to fall from the tree but remain attached to him.
Installing a ready-made loop, it carefully examine: should be cleaned of rust, old oil and to test. Old weak wire rabbit can easily break.
Most convenient to catch the hare method of the pen. Find forest plot, the most populated haremi. Set hinges on all trails and in the center of the site. Now start the rut: use ratchet to shout themselves as loudly as possible, avoiding all places where animals can hide. After some time, inspect the installed loop. Overnight Express only those that are on the migratory paths. Cases are known when the method of the corral was brought to the snares of even larger animal – a Fox and a wolf, which, however, is quite easy to tear a hare snare and flee.
If the loop is made of a material which the animal can easily break, slip into the snare of a tubular bone with a length of approximately 8-10 cm It needs to slide freely on the rope.
Snare the hare, you can also make nylon cord, hemp, twisted bark and horse hair, but most good loops out of metal wires, and the it is softer, it is better to catch the beast.
