Team Wild expert Eamonn Mahoney is our main man when it comes to snares and traps.
At this time of the year magpies, hooded crows and grey crows cause havoc on smaller birds and their dwelling nests. So we have asked Eammon (with the help of his two children) to provide a useful step-by-step guide to building a Larsen trap. The perfect trap design for capturing these type of vermin and only taking the Mahoney boys two hours to make, the trap is something you can try at home.
Eammon really knows his way around a successful devise as he spends a lot of his time building all kinds of snares and traps. Recently, he’s been making mink traps to help control the number of mink, squirrel, and feral cats. These rodents have been causing huge problems for his local gun club.
