Most of these are just hunting traps, if you'd like to add more ideas feel free to. I'd like this to be a thread dedicated to traps so don't dick around. Any ideas for traps are welcome.

What about if you could a trap that hangs on a tree and when someone steps on it it will grab them by the foot and lift them into the air
Actually that's fairly close to the motion snare except you'd be using a tree branch and not a spring pole I guess :)

Foot Hold Trap

Items:
5 Stakes
1 Rope
Leaves

Tools:
Shovel

Description:
It's a hidden hole in the ground surrounded by sharpened stakes with a snare placed on top. A deer or perhaps zombie steps in it and becomes snared, the stakes make it so it can't move around too much. Perfect for keeping prey in place.
Example:

An addition that I would like to add is a trap for birds:



It would require wodden planks and a chicken wire, which would be common in rural areas for trapping smaller game, but could be easily adapted to hold birds with the addition of a net.

I believe that this game should use one of the most common traps out there. Snare traps. And not just a plonk it down anywhere and you catch a rabbit within 5 minutes I mean the sort of look around the forrest for generated rabbit trails and paths then you pop down the snare leave it for a day or 2 and then if your lucky there'll be a tasty fresh rabbit in your trap just like in the real world. It would also serve as a food source and you could have a wide array of snares like recoil snares that lift your unlucky target out of reach of other preditors or the simple noose snare that you tie around a branch on the floor take your pick!!!
