I was just curious if anyone else had ever done any trapping or at least setting of traps to make sure they knew how to do it and to test the triggers? Ive used some of the dead falls from John McPhearsons 'Naked into the Wilderness' and done some fishing with hoop nets that would be about the same as fish traps that aren't to hard to build. I know there are also a lot of traps out there that are VERY difficult to set and not very reliable that are touted even in some of the survival books so am mostly interested in ones that you have at least set and tripped to test. I know a lot of the trapping methods one might use if forced to for food are illegal in most if not all areas, that's why I make sure to include ones just set and tripped to test the triggers, kind of like a crossbow trap for deer or large dead falls. If you use the ones like the conibears (jaw traps) how many do you figure you could carry with your other gear if you had to bug out?
