This is the all wooden rabbit trap specifically designed for capturing rabbits that refuse to go into a wire cage. The simple design was "borrowed" from the Penn. Game Commission. Anyone who has tried to get a rabbit to go into a wire cage knows that it isn't that easy. Rabbits seem to be more comfortable entering a wooden box. Like a see-saw, the rabbit walks up the incline inside the trap, towards the bait, and then their weight tilts the wooden pan of the trap forward and the door closes behind them. It is recommended that you bait the trap with apple slices. As an added attractor, the All Wooden rabbit trap comes complete with 1 oz. of pure Apple Essence. Use a drop of apple essence every 4 - 6 inches and lead the rabbit right into the trap. The all wooden rabbit trap measures 24" x 7" x 8.5" and is constructed of 3/4" pine. You could stain the exterior (ONLY) with a green stain or allow the trap to weather to give it the "aged" look.
