spring pole snare
I don't know if this split cedar crab trap will be tough enough to stand up to the sea, but I'm going to do my best to find a calm spot to test it.
^^@NWPrimate thats awesome
@NWPrimate awesome doing!
not super primitive but here is a trolling wire snare that I catch rabbits with. Somewhere I have a photo of a deadfalll I made from a couple railroad ties, a figure four and a cubby. I used it for catching skunks, it worked well and no smell
trip wire trigger
Wow! I wanna see the results on this!

Im with you @Howie . Keep your eye out for the keyring pull pin style

This one was an incidental catch in a modern foothold trap, #1 coilspring bedded into the log in the background. I was able to cover him with my coat and release him. I left my skinned out muskrats for him through the first winter while he healed up. His foot healed a little funky, but he survived.
Window alarm with fishing line trip wire. Loud. Can hear about 100m away
Rat trap and glow stick. Can see it about 50m away over 100 with nvgs.

What a great thread guys, Thanks
I have found these to be the most useful ones for many different situations over the years.
I dug a 10 foot hole in front of Walmart and caught 37 people on their cell phones in the first 20 minutes.
