Treadle spring snare

Treadle spring snare

This springloaded snare is slightly different from the simple springloaded snare, as this one has a 'pressure plate'.


Instead of the Y-shaped stick needed in the simple version, use a pointy peg.

Your trigger is made of a flexible stick which is placed in the ground as a half circle and a stronger, straight stick on which the "pressure plate" rests. This is made up of a number of sticks.

When the animal steps on the pressure place, it pushes down the straight stick, releasing the toggle, sending the target up in the air!

Practice, but respect the local laws!
