The Art of Primitive Trapping

Trapping animals Has always been a very efficient way to harvest meat and fur. You find a place where animals are likely to be, you set your trap, and you go about your day. The trap keeps working for you!

In this workshop we will go out into the woods and find animal trails. We will discuss strategies for funneling the intended prey into your trap and which trap is best for each situation.

We will build a couple of basic traps including the Paiute deadfall, and the twitch-up spring snare. We will discuss ethics in trapping, animal identification and selection, and when and how to trap each animal.

We will be out in the field for this class, and we will be building some traps, but we will not be actually trapping anything! Primitive traps are illegal in Minnesota unless you are in a survival situation!

Please check our schedule for all upcoming classes!

All our classes are availble to be scheduled for a private group of 8 or more! Contact us to set a date!
