Many of these triggers can be field-built with little more than a knife, and some can even be built with one's bare hands. In this video, we show how to build one of the best “tool-free” traps, the Paiute deadfall. This very clever trap dates back hundreds, if not thousands, of years to the early Paiute Indian nations. Like all other deadfalls, this one utilizes some type of weight (often a rock), and a trigger system to hold the rock up in the air until your future meal finds its way under it. The difference between this deadfall trap and the rest of them is that the stronger and more sensitive trigger can be fashioned without any tools. To make this trap, simply break a few sticks into the right size and shape with your bare hands, scrounge up a few inches of string and some bait, and locate a large flat rock.
