One of the many skills that bushcrafters like to develop is the art of setting traps. For a prepper, setting traps is often thought of as a way to protect your property, and this is an effective use for them.
For a survivalist/bushcrafter, though, setting traps is more often associated with capturing food. While the most widely used traps for this purpose are snares and spring traps, there are other–much more intimidating–trap designs available as well.
One such trap is the Apache foot trap. As its name suggests, it was originally used by Native Americans for both hunting and defense, and is pretty intimidating just to look at; it's certainly not something you'd want to get stuck in.
