No, really!  These are actual traps to catch stuff in the wild.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Useful stuff!

Do you remember that these (and others) used to be featured and explained in the Boy Scout Handbook?
Not any more, I betcha.

They used to be in FMF manuals, and in Army and Air Force manuals too
I've still got a copy that was given me by a Vietnam-era, Recon Marine friend.

Yes, I remember.

Was a cub scout.

Was a boy scout.

I'm pretty sure my Ranger Handbook has one or two of these in the survival section.

The Ranger Cadre at Harmony Church and at Camp Frank D. Merrill gave live demonstrations of some survival devices too.
The one I was most impressed with was a series of thin lines spaced in a choke point of a stream, so that fish would get caught by their gills when drifting downstream. It was brilliant!

I hope I can remember how to set that up, IF I ever need to.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.
