Any one have any good primitive traps
Wow, I am impressed, @Bishop!
Looks like a very reliable trap. And reasonably quick to set up.
It is and if you make it out of air craft cable like the top pictures it will catch any thing that walks or crawls I used to catch fox alive and sell to a fox pen 6 of these a night check three times a night payed a lot of bills
1/16" (7x7) Break Strength 480lbs Galvanized Aircraft Cable | Fastenal
Try 1/16" cable. Very thin, and still has almost 500lbs strength. Will tie without too much trouble, but a snap clip on one end and a cinch loop on the other works well.
Here two bird traps also
Your traps are very impressive, my compliments.
It is us that thank you for sharing.
0311 or 0331??
11D4P primary and 11B4S, light weapons NCO.
I should have written 11D2 as it was the highest rank I achieved in that MOS. Did some digging and the 11D was discontinued and replaced by the 19D
"Among recommendations submitted by the Tank Forces Management Group, twenty-eight concerned personnel actions. One of the most important was the establishment of a separate armor management field. Some of the broad military occupational specialties such as 11D, Armor Reconnaissance Specialist, and 11E, Armor Crewman, will be broken down into more descriptive categories and assigned new numbers in the 19-series. For example, 11E will be split into five new MOS's-19G Armor Reconnaissance Vehicle Crewman; 19H, Armor Reconnaissance Vehicle Driver; 19E M48-M60A1/A3 Armor Crewman, 19F Tank Driver, 19J M60A2 Armor Crewman; and MOS 11D will be converted"
Gosh I'm so old my MOS was obsoleted.
Lol they changed 8541 to 0317 which really makes more sense any way.
Same here. 11BC2 is now a 404 error.
Here's a nice illustration of a spring snare trap
I've never seen 11B followed by a C. Bravo was infantry and Charlie was mortars, 81 or 4.2"
Another bird trap made from a clam bag not yet tested but will be in the morning
You see? Now you have ME feeling old and I know you're older than I am! 11BC2 --the MOS is "dragon gunner", the M47 weapon system (anti-tank missile) replaced by the Javelin. The Army figured, a fire and forget missile can be used by anyone, unlike the old wire guided missiles which took quite a bit of training to ensure effectiveness. I think our life expectancy was measured in seconds, lol...
@Bishop I couldn't make heads or tails from that net trap you just posted. Looks like a hot mess! Hope it works for you though.
As you left your youth in the Army, same as the rest of us, you're old.
Joking aside, the only dragon when I was in was in was Puff the magic dragon.

A bad lashing can fail,...

Any of you start fires...
Wondering if anyone has a secret bobcat/coon mixture scent for pulling in bobcats and raccoons.
Also all I have for the bobcat is a few leg traps...

Production values are reasonable,...
This was a simple fun campfire project. Has anyone else experimented with natural dye? What are your favourites?

Does anyone have experience trapping turtles? I built a trap and I don't know if I have a location problem or a technique problem.
I need a little more practice but I will get it down.
