Ojibwa Bird Pole - Birds can be much easier to trap than mammals and should be among your first targets for a meal. Set this trap in a large clearing where birds will naturally seek it out as a landing place. When a bird flies down and perches, it will displace the stick, the rock will fall, and its feet will be caught as the loop quickly slides through the hole.

Funnel Trap Make the walls of the funnel trap with piled-up stones or tightly spaced sticks driven solidly into the river or lakebed. Close the entrance to the trap, roil the water, then either spear the fish or net them with a seine made by tying a shirt or other cloth between two stout poles.
Ground Snare // Position the snare at head height and tie off the end to a tree, a stake in the ground, or a log that the animal can only drag a short distance as the noose tightens. Make snares from cord, fishing line, or wire if available.
Tension Traps Employing fire-hardened spear points under tension, these can be deadly to predator and prey alike.This trip-wire set is effective for wild pigs, deer, or other game that regularly sticks to defined game trails. Make certain the horizontal thrust of the spear is at a level that will impale the body of the game sought.
