How to trp small game : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

You can use a snare, a drop trap, or a dead fall ( for larger game ) all useing a figure 4 trigger, but the slickest method is to use fishing tactics. Quail, grouse, and squirell all feed on the ground, ( turkey and pheasunt require a different method ) and can be caught useing a small egg hook, a cernal of canned corn, and 2 ft. of monofillement fishing line tied to a sapling ( I use Spider wire (tm) ) The game eats the corn and the hook keeps them there. Check the trap often from a distance, if you leave it over nite, all you get is fur and feathers, predaters will love you.

I never look at the sise of the hook ( don't know )

The hook fits inside of the corn, it's hidden, just like fishing it's the size of the bait. Any kinda tie will work, I try if I can to hook it to a flexable lower limb so it acts as a shock absorber, probably over kill as I've never had one break-off, but what the hey. Find a place that you can see the foot prints, and chum a bit. Great over a camp fire.
