The last regular meeting before the Summer holidays found the members of the ‘Wolf Pack’ – Southern Explorers out hunting.
Working as a team (which all successful Packs do ) they set to to make a variety of different small game traps. In the limited time available and using mostly what they had around them they constructed a dead fall trap and a spring snare.
Both traps were then tested out by our resident small prey namely ‘Furry Fred’. As can be seen, Fred fell foul of both designs and, had Fred been a rabbit he would have ended up over a wood fire!
- If we had to forage and catch our own food we would all be a lot slimmer!
- If you are laying traps always inspect them regularly to minimise any suffering caused.
- When leaving an area, always remove any traps laid.
