Primitive Trapping Class

Primitive Trapping

Secure protein from your natural surroundings

While modern traps outperform primitive traps, we firmly believe in having a contingency skill set that can be put to use when you are in an emergency situation or separated from your gear. Students will gain a thorough understanding of at least two dead-fall triggers and 3 primitive twitch ups (that actually work) and can be used in a multitude of scenarios. With a fundamental knowledge of trapping mechanics, students will be able to manipulate weight and tension with natural materials, even developing their “own” triggers and traps. With thorough comprehension of how traps work, how to set them easily and safely, to properly set bait, anyone in a tight spot can develop hundreds of traps and capture more while saving calories that would be spent on active hunting. The class includes practical hands-on practice at making primitive traps with carved sticks and natural plant fiber cordage.

Takeaway: Students will leave with a fundamental knowledge of primitive trapping mechanics and confidently be able to set a diverse range of traps in an emergency situation. Each participant makes several traps to test and take home.
