and the facts of life about game. A 5 sq mile allotment of land is ust 2.4 mile diameter circle. Starting at its center, you can't walk at a good pace for mor than half an hour before hitting your boundary. if there's no game inside of that area, you are screwed when it comes to trapping and much more so when it comes to bowhunting. Half of that circle is out on the water, guys So, what you've really got it for hunting trapping is a rectangle about a mile wide and 2 miles long. That's it. If you caught EVERY small mammal and grouse on that 2 sq miles, it would not feed you properly for 2 months and you wont be able to catch even half of them, with nothing more than snares and primitive traps. This is Especially true of you have no bait. Rabbits and other herbivors will bait to salted cambium if they are not close to the sea. Foxes, wolverines, lynx and raptors will bait to pemmican and live-caught mice and small birds. 4 wraps of 3" mesh netting around a 1x1x2 ft wooden frame and the result is 3/8' mesh. A basket, lined with tarp and tape, can hold water, and mice can be baited out onto a roller log across the top of such a "bucket", with split small logs forming baited ramps up which the mice can climb. Mice will bait to fish guts or pemmican, mixed with salted cambium. Nothing keeps you from adding peanut butter to your pemmican as you make it, either.
