Trap Making for Kids
Have you ever wondered how to build a trap that could catch a wild animal? Trapping is much more effective than hunting in a survival situation and traps are a lot of fun to build! We will go over trapping techniques, build some traps and snares, talk about trapping ethics, and consider how to make the traps non-lethal for catch and release methods We will also search through the woods to find animals trails and other sign that show good places to set traps. At the end of this class, you will have a simple trap to bring home!
