While mapping in the field I have seen several traps, or in some cases I was lucky I didn’t step into one.
The first trap is for small rodents. The rodent walks into the trap attracted by the bait and steps on the trigger, which is a small stick. The stick releases a string which holds the large log into place.
The other trap has a noose and once stepped into the bent branch is released and the prey is hanging on the string. They are pretty nasty since they are difficult to see and I almost walked into one of them.
