Thompson Snares Survival Kit + Speedhook 3-Pack.
The Thompson Snares Survival Kit includes two small-game snares (00S-20 and 0S-30), tie-wire, and instructions.
This type of snare was first issued to US pilots during World War II, and continues to see wide use to this day. These are the right size for small game like squirrel, weasel, marten, grouse, rabbit, and woodchuck.
Snares and traps offer a big advantage vs active hunting. Active hunting burns a lot of calories, is somewhat risky, and means that you cannot spend your effort on other tasks. Every snare you set increases the odds that you will have food. And by setting snares, you free yourself for other tasks (constructing shelter, getting water, etc.). The advantage of a snare over a deadfall-style trap: you do not run the risk of rupturing the animal's bladder and intestines, fouling the meat and possibly poisoning yourself.
The Speedhook includes three stainless steel traps.
The Regular Speedhook is specifically designed for survival applications and is so effective, it is outlawed for non-survival use in some areas. This small device is used for fishing and trapping when no food is readily available. The Speedhook works like a spring loaded trap and when a fish, or other small animal, "takes the bait", it automatically springs open setting the hook. Includes 3 Speedhooks.
