HOW TO TRAP AND SNARE
A COMPLETE MANUAL FOR THE SPORTSMAN, GAME PRESERVER, AND AMATEUR
THE ART OF TAKING ANIMALS AND BIRDS IN TRAPS, SNARES AND NETS
WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS
WILLIAM CARNEGIE ("MOORMAN")
"This manual is intended to provide as much pracical insight into the various modes of trapping, snaring, and netting the animals and birds of the British Isles as can be furnished by writing.
Whenever possible and desirable, such insight is given of the haunts and habitats of the creatures to be caught as may prove useful to the amateur or tyro, for whom it is more particularly planned, than for the professional.
Every piece of work, device, trap, snare, or net described has been performed, employed, or made by the author, and it is hoped that the experience gained during many years may prove of advantage to others who may be induced to follow the Art of the Trapper, either for pastime or profit" William Carnegie, 1880.
