I heard from people that you can make you own cage traps right out of chicken wire, and if you do know so, tell me how to make it.

well i made some in 8th grade &caught rabbits & pheasants out of wire &
2x8's ya make a rectangle out of thewood. cut a 1" square hole 3/4's of
the length of the box this is where ya install your trip. take a old broom handle5-7" knotch it, it fits in the hole ya cut, now ya attach it toanother
piece of broom stick this will seesaw on top the box with another fulcrum
in the middle. theother end of this seesaw hooks to the door, i made doors out of plywood that slid up & down suppose you could hinge the door & rig a stop that it drops into. hope yacan figur out what i'm tellin
ya bout the trip mechanisim it's pretty simple & worked fine for me.
I'm sure if ya look up homemade box trap or live catch trap ya can find
some pictures. have fun...
