Primitive Traps and Snares
For past peoples on a global scale the use of traps and snares were very important! Here in Arizona, prehistoric people would use traps to keep rodents and animals out of the Maize fields, and supply meat to members of the trapper's family. In this class we will discuss the following traps and teach you how to make and use them. Paiute deadfall Hopi bird snare Rolling snare Southern Paiute deadfall No animals will be hurt or trapped in this class. IMPORTANT BELOW When? This class will be held on September 29th 2018 at 10:00am. We will finish around 1:00pm. Of course, you are not required to stay the entire length. If you leave early, we will still provide supplies. Where? Meet at the main parking lot at the Heritage Park Zoo. We will then go down to the lake. There is a $3.00 entrance fee, but it is a beautiful place! Look for the BLACK JEEP with a white rounded sticker on the back. How much? This class costs $25 per person. What to bring? We ask you to bring cool clothing for warmer spring weather, a sharp knife, lots of water, a lunch, a positive spirit, and a smile :) *****READ*****What if I have to cancel? If you need to cancel, please do do 24 hours ahead of time. If the class size is too small and we are forced to cancel, we will do so 24 hours ahead of time as well. Finally, I look forward to working with you all again! - Jeff Martin

What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in outdoor skills. Here we will get back to our roots and travel back in time when our ancestors used to live with the land and appreciate the environment for what it provides. You will find us teaching the following skills: primitive fire making, tracking and trapping, edible and medicinal plants, animal processing, stone and bone tools, bow making, arrow making, atlatl and dart crafting, basket weaving, primitive pottery, primitive jewelry making, and much more. Every thing is presented in a historical context and a hands on experience. We hope to see you here! Also visit our website and youtube channel at:
