TheDefaultHuman posted a topic in Hunting and FishingI live in an area with forests and small towns, roads, rivers, and limited people, but theres still people. I can easily access a small river area and small forest area where people rarely go. The river is supposed to be semi-polluted but isn't anymore. I seen a tire in it once but the water looks fresh. Its mostly rocks and not deep but we have a huge waterfall/dam here. I can try setting up traps upstream rivery (and rocky) or downstream (mostly rocky, and rapids). What traps are easy makes? Or even complicated, I got the time, I bought one but its just netting. Any recommendations on what type of fish are common (I'm in NH but its a river, so there should common types of animals/fish/others). As for game and forest areas, what traps can I make from word or other materials that are low cost, and still effective. I tried making a small pitfall in 10 minutes and if I made it deeper it would have worked. But I disassembled it. Pictures, How-To's and other information is gladly accepted. I figure if a caveman can survive with tools of stone and wood, I can easily make something for $3.00 that could get me 1 or 2 meals? I caught 32 bluegill with a net before, I was there for 4 hours-ish, it was my second trip there, the day before I went for 2 hours and came up with nothing. So what can I do here? Thanks
