Survival Tips: Using Snare Traps For Hunting & SHTF

snare traps

Using snare traps for hunting (and for SHTF) is one of the most important survival skills you can learn. 

Snares primarily trap small and medium-sized game. And if you build them right they’ll trap the animal while you’re out and about. That way when you come back, you’ll have fresh game ready and waiting for you.

They’re also sneakier than a gun. For example, when you fire a gun you risk giving away your location. Not with snare traps – you can catch animals right and left without letting anyone catch onto your whereabouts.

There are lots of snares to choose from in a survival scenario. So before you get started, check out these… 

Survival Tips: Using Snare Traps For Hunting & SHTF

Things To Consider

Before we delve into the different types of snare traps, there are some factors every prepper needs to consider.

For instance, many people foolishly believe they can just set up a trap willy-nilly and catch whatever they want. Not true. You need to be very strategic about how you build your snare – and where you put it. You also have to make sure it works every single time – otherwise you’re letting your supper get away.

When selecting a location, shoot for somewhere thats a good distance away from where you set up camp. For one, this makes it more likely for animals to come forward, since they won’t be scared off by the noises around your campsite.

Not to mention, this allows you to hunt game outside the immediate vicinity of your site. This is a plus if/when the surrounding area of your bug-out location becomes too dangerous.

Also, keep a keen eye out for burrow holes, animal droppings, footprints, game trails, and watering holes. These are signals that animals roam here and will likely come back through the area.

Spring Snare 

This trap is time-tested; after all, people have been using it practically since they learned how to hunt. This is a great snare for small game, but is adaptable to catch larger prey.

There are many versions of the snare trap. However, they all contain a noose (which can be made from paracord, a shoelace, wiring, etc) a base (which stays stuck in the ground) and a hook (which disengages from the base and helps trap the animal).

They also each have an overhanging tree (such as a sapling) which causes the “spring.”

Here’s a cool video showing you three types of snare trips you can make for catching rabbits:

The Fishing Snare

Here’s a similar setup to the one in the previous video. The trick here is to attach a baited fishing line to the trigger and set it in the water.

The fish will take the bait, and the trap will snag the fish and keep it on the line. It won’t take the fish out of the water, but it will keep it from getting away.

Watch the video below for one way to make this cool trap.

The Hammer Time Trap

Also known as a “tension trap” this trap can be very dangerous. That’s because it’s meant to impale its victims. Of course, this means the trap can’t distinguish between friend or foe – so you’ll need to be careful when setting it up.

Here’s a video showing you one way to set it up:–V5Y0

Ojibwa Snare

The Ojibwa Bird Snare is a great way to catch your feathered friends. And since it requires very little materials (some cordage, a rock and a pole with a hole drilled through) you can set it up pretty easily.

Here’s a video showing you the building process:

Trapping Larger Game

Most snares are built for small game. But what about larger predators, like coyotes?

When SHTF (and in everyday life) you’ll be competing with predators for food. And one of the best ways to ensure you get your meals is by removing the competition.

Obviously, stronger material is necessary to make a snare like this. However, if you use the basic functionality of a normal snare, you can trap one of these animals on the spot.

Here’s a video showing you how it’s done:

Once you’ve caught that small game (like squirrel) you may wonder what the best way is to cook it. Well with a few natural resources you can spice up that meat and make a mighty fine supper.

Biden Commissions a Poll… on Harris in 2024!


The Biden-Harris Campaign has reportedly commissioned an internal poll to gauge how Vice President Kamala Harris would perform as the Democratic nominee against former President Donald Trump. This development was reported by The New York Times on Thursday, citing three anonymous sources who are informed about the matter. The move comes as discussions within the Democratic Party intensify regarding the possibility of replacing President Joe Biden at the top of the ticket, following his disastrous debate performance that has sent shockwaves through the party.

The New York Times report notes that the campaign has not specified why the survey is being conducted or what the campaign plans to do with the results. This appears to be the first Trump versus Harris poll commissioned by the campaign since the debate. It is also unclear which outfit is conducting the survey.

Campaign Manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez and Campaign Chair Jennifer O’Malley Dillon attempted to reassure staff in an internal memo, emphasizing that Biden remains the most viable candidate and that he has a path to victory. They argued that hypothetical polling of alternative nominees is unreliable and that Biden is the only Democratic candidate for whom the negative media environment is already accounted for.

Despite these reassurances, recent polls and internal discussions suggest growing doubts about Biden’s candidacy. A poll from Emerson College Polling published Tuesday showed Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, indicating that Trump led Biden by three points and Harris by six in hypothetical two-way races.

Adding to the turmoil, some of Biden’s close allies are reportedly devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. NBC News reported that several sources within Biden’s circle say his bid for the White House is a lost cause. One Biden campaign official stated, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The commissioning of this internal poll is a stark admission of President Joe Biden’s deteriorating mental state. This unprecedented move highlights the growing concerns within the Democratic Party about Biden’s cognitive decline and raises serious questions about his ability to continue leading the nation.

The fact that the Biden-Harris campaign is even considering Harris as a potential nominee underscores the gravity of Biden’s cognitive issues. The campaign’s decision to assess Harris’s viability as a replacement candidate against Trump is a clear indication that they are grappling with the reality of Biden’s declining mental faculties.

Despite attempts by campaign officials to reassure staff, the frequency and gravity of Biden’s errors are alarming. The Emerson College Polling results, showing Trump with a larger lead over Harris than over Biden, further complicate the narrative and suggest that switching candidates may not solve the Democrats’ problems.

Reports from The New York Times and NBC News indicate that some of Biden’s close allies are devising strategies to convince him to end his candidacy. This growing consensus among Biden’s supporters that his bid for re-election is untenable underscores the urgent need for action. One Biden campaign official bluntly told NBC News, “He needs to drop out. He will never recover from this.”

The implications of President Biden’s cognitive decline are profound and far-reaching. The President of the United States must be someone who can lead with clarity, decisiveness, and strength. Biden’s frequent gaffes and apparent confusion raise serious doubts about his ability to fulfill these responsibilities effectively.

The American people deserve a leader who is mentally fit to navigate the complexities of the presidency. Biden’s continued candidacy, in light of overwhelming evidence of cognitive decline, is not just a political issue; it is a national crisis. The Democratic Party must confront this reality and take decisive action to ensure that the country is led by someone capable of meeting the demands of the office.

The coming months will be critical for both President Biden and the Democratic Party. As calls for Biden to step aside grow louder, the party must consider the broader implications for the country. The focus must shift to ensuring that the next leader is not only politically viable but also mentally fit to lead. The stakes are too high to ignore the glaring signs of cognitive decline in the current President.

Quadruple Board Certified Doctor: Biden Has Parkinson’s, Brain Degeneration


In a revealing interview with NBC News, a respected quadruple board-certified neurologist from New York City, Dr. Tom Pitts, unequivocally stated that President Joe Biden “definitely” has Parkinson’s disease and brain degeneration.

Dr. Pitts spoke with NBC News’ Tom Llamas, who queried, “Given what you’ve observed from the president over the last two years, his debate performances, recent interviews, his speech patterns, and gait, do you see any red flags as a medical professional?”

“Oh yeah, I see him 20 times a day in clinic,” Pitts replied, highlighting how typical Biden’s symptoms were among his patients. “He exhibits classic features of neurodegeneration: word-finding difficulties—this isn’t merely ‘I couldn’t find the right word,’ it’s from degeneration of the word retrieval area.”

Llamas pointed out Biden’s history with stuttering, questioning if it could be related. Pitts firmly responded, “No, this is not a stuttering issue or speech discrepancy,” elaborating further, “Plus, the rigidity, monotone voice…”

Dr. Pitts continued, “When he turns, it’s an end-block turning; it’s not a swift motion. That’s a hallmark of Parkinson’s: rigidity and bradykinesia, slow movement. He has that hallmark, especially with the low voice attributed to a cold; hypophonia, a small monotone voice over time is a hallmark of Parkinsonism. I could have diagnosed him from across the mall.”

Describing Biden’s gait, Pitts noted, “Shuffling gait, we call that ‘little steps.’ Loss of arm swing due to rigidity; typically, we walk with a nice cadence, but he doesn’t swing his arms. End-block turning means he pivots around his foot. If you called out, ‘Hey, President Biden,’ he wouldn’t swiftly turn to look behind him.”

When Llamas suggested Parkinson’s is challenging to diagnose, Pitts disagreed, “It’s one of the easier movement disorders to diagnose. I’m a Democrat… This isn’t a difficult case. Once you start manifesting the hallmark motor symptoms—slow movement, rigidity, masked facies, hypophonia—if a med student didn’t recognize Parkinson’s on a test, they’d fail.”

Bluntly, Pitts concluded, “His motor symptoms are degenerating. He has Parkinsonisms. That is a fact. He has brain degeneration. Show me the MRI. Prove he doesn’t. Put your money where your mouth is. He definitely has it.”

For conservatives concerned about the nation’s leadership, these assertions raise serious questions about President Biden’s cognitive fitness to serve in the highest office.

Trump and His Allies Move to Destroy Biden Campaign


( – Politico revealed on Monday that a pro-Trump super PAC receiving significant funding from billionaire Miriam Adelson is preparing to launch a $61 million advertising campaign this month to deal a fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.

A source informed Politico that a revitalized and redesigned Preserve America will run advertisements this month as the Summer Olympics get underway in Paris.

The story stated that the ads would run in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, it was revealed that Adelson intended to contribute significantly to Preserve America, a group established amid President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

Although it is currently uncertain how much the super PAC will rely on Adelson’s contributions, sources informed Politico in May that she intends to raise her 2020 donation of $90 million.

Her and her late husband’s contributions accounted for 85% of Preserve America’s funding. Sheldon Adelson, the late billionaire who owned casinos, passed away on January 11, 2021.

Adelson’s wife, who now controls their contributions, plans to increase their super PAC funding.

Preserve America’s goal is to capitalize on the internal Democratic squabbling that followed the June 27 presidential debate. Several Democrats have demanded that Biden resign as his polling numbers have dropped.

Adelson and her son-in-law are Las Vegas Sands’s principal shareholders and jointly own most of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, she is worth $33.3 billion.
