A classic of wood lore, this guide to making and setting traps offers timeless instruction for reconnecting with traditional hunting techniques. Author W. Hamilton Gibson, a noted naturalist and skilled artist, provides well-illustrated directions for the do-it-yourself craft of trap hunting. An ideal companion for readers who want to get back to nature, disconnect from the grid, and discover simpler hunting techniques, the book proposes relatively inexpensive methods that don't involve a lot of complicated technology.
In addition to showing how to build traps for large, small, and feathered game, this volume provides a wealth of information on animals and their habits as well as how to process game, including a selection of recipes. Chapters on camping in the woods while hunting feature directions for building simple shelters such as bark shanties and constructing boats and canoes. Novices and experts alike will appreciate this comprehensive guide to an age-old pursuit.
