This Bow Trap is Dangerous and Deadly

All it takes is a knife and some cordage to make this deadly bow trap.

The bow trap concept is similar to a snare or other type of primitive trap in that you place it in an area where target animals are likely to travel and a length of cordage acts as the trigger. However, instead of catching and holding the animal like most traps, a bow trap delivers a lethal arrow from close range.

If you decide to try this survival technique, be careful and don’t leave it unattended. These things really work.
