In this trapping course, we will teach you everything you need to know to acquire protein in a survival situation.. We like to say that survival is a lazy man’s game, because the goal is to expend less calories than you consume daily. With this in mind, trapping will work for you while you’re sleeping or lounging around at camp. Hunting requires more activity which translates to more calories lost and more time away from other important tasks. Hunting is great but the best hunter will never out produce a great trapper! Your trap is hunting for you 24/7.
