We thought long and hard before preparing this volume of the Woodsmaster. The more we thought about traps and trapping, the more we realized that this sensitive subject is one of the most important wilderness skills! After shelter and water, food is the key to survival living in the wilderness.

This volume of the Woodsmaster deals with the essential skills, techniques, ethics and designs for efficient survival trapping.

Maggots or Marmots? Take your choice!
Don't you be trapped… hungry!
