First Sentence
I call the first snare presented a "pest" snare, not because that is the only thing it is good for, but because that is what I use it for. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars Slim July 24 2011
By Curtis
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to teach various sets for snares. Other than snares, there are a couple of sets for deadfalls. Good knowledge to have in your survivalist repertoire. There is no coverage for steel leg traps commonly used by commercial trappers. There is also no mention of what to do with your catch, such as the proper processing of furs and hides. So I wouldn't call this a trapper's BIBLE but it is something you would absolutely want to know if you were caught in the woods without food or contemplating a period of low tech, minimalist lifestyle. I liked the book. I'm glad I got it and intend to practice the skills it teaches. But I was hoping for a bit more out of a BIBLE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trapper's Bible: Traps, Snares and Pathguards Dec 9 1999
An excellent source for the complete novice. Martin's work is clear, complete and even humorous. As someone who did not even know the difference between a trap or a snare, I can highly recommend this book as a first step in finding out. The illustrations are flawless. I am someone mildly concerned about the impact of Y2K and this book was a wealth of information on being able to provide meat for yourself in the event of emergencies. Happy reading!

2.0 out of 5 stars There must be better books out there. May 13 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pretty light, and would mostly be useful for someone who has never trapped at all.

The section on defensive traps (i.e. Human targets) was a bit of a laugh. They'd work fine, just an odd subject I felt. Could have spent more time on more useful subjects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very repetitious April 13 2013

This was to help me brawden my trading skills, but it only reaped the same. Snare over and over. I have a trapping friend who looked at it and said that there are so many more snares and traps out there.

If you never did any snareing before then this will show you one.
