As always, it’s best to check beforehand to make sure you won’t face legal charges by practicing your trapping skills. One workaround is to do so while on a hunting trip.

There are many different traps you can make using nothing but what you can find at hand. You’ll want to learn a few of them, as some traps are better suited to specific animals.

Of course, if you’re practicing trapping, you need to know how to dress a kill. It’s best if you practice filleting fish, portioning fowl, and dressing game meat at home or under the tutelage of someone with experience.

This way, you aren’t forced to learn on the go.
