Have you seen Predator? Well, in the classic flick, Arnold and friends capture the Predator in a springing net trap similar (but much larger) to the one I make in this video. I wouldn’t recommend capturing violent extraterrestrials, but in a survival situation, this is a great trap to use to catch birds. Grouse and Ptarmigan are around in the winter in much of Canada, so this trap is effective all year long with the potential of providing a good meal. The drawbacks to it are that you need a net, and the trap needs to be baited, two things that may be hard to come by in a survival situation.
