8. Deadfall.
a. You can catch medium to large animals in deadfalls; however,
use this method only where bigger game exist in sufficient
quantities to justify the time and effort required to construct
this snare. Build your deadfall close to or across a game trail
beside a stream or on a ridge. Be sure the fall log slides
smoothly between the upright guide posts, and that you place
the bait far enough from the bottom log to insure time for the
fall log to fall before the animal can withdraw its head (fig.
130).

b. You can build a simple deadfall as shown in figure 131. Use a
rock or heavy log and tilt it at a steep angle on a figure 4
trigger. Tie the bait on the trigger. When the game disturbs the
bait, the weight will fall.
