Making a net

▪NOOSE STICK These are handy little things. They are really more suited for traps and snares (covered above in the Food chapter), but what I have in mind here are nooses as they can be applied as a weapon.

First, make your noose with a slip knot out of thin wire or strong thin string; even a high-strength fishing line can be used. Then take a strong stick about 3-4 feet long and a diameter that provides a comfortable grip. Tie your noose to one end of the stick so that the loop of the noose is just a couple inches removed from the stick. Now you have an extended-reach garrotte that can be very effective if you can get close enough to a small mammal or bird.

Some animals will freeze when they see a human. In remote areas where humans are rarely seen, they might have no fear whatsoever. When you can get close but can’t get a clean whack at them with a club—such as with birds perched just a little to high, or critters in a hole or crevice—then the noose stick becomes handy to reach up or in, slip on the knot, quickly and forcefully choke the animal, then haul ’em out and eat ’em up.
