1 Tension Trap

Also known as the spring loaded trap, this can work for both animals and humans. Make sure to choose the right type of wood to ensure that the trap will be able to impale the animal in such a way that it wouldn’t be able to escape.

5 Apache Foot Trap

This involves digging a hole deep enough to trap bigger game, like deer, fox, or coyote. Place two layers of wooden stakes, each roughly 12 inches or more, depending on the width of the hole. Just pound the stakes on the side of the hole to make them fit. Make a snare using a rope and lay it on top of the first set of wooden stakes. The other end of the rope should be tied securely around a tree. Camouflage the hole using grass and leaves.
