I found you this mate

 

Stovepipe Bird Trap. The stovepipe game bird trap is so simple, it makes me laugh every time I think about it. The principle behind it is that birds can't back up. Have you ever seen a bird walk backwards? Neither have I!

 

Materials needed:

  1. (1) 6-inch diameter, 24-inch long stove pipe
  2. piece of chicken wire, about 12-inches square
  3. some duct tape

That's it. You take the chicken wire, form it around one end of the pipe, and duct tape the overlay nice and tight around the pipe. Place a trail of corn going into the pipe, and a pile or cob in the back. This has to be the easiest trap to make, and man does it work! Be careful when you pull the pheasants out.

 

If you're after squirrels there are a few threads on here that you'll find useful, including all the seesaw discussions.

why dont you just make a proper chicken mesh catcher , and catch dozens at once , like the keepers make .20 in hand is worth 1 in bush .

Easy to make from a bit of chicken wire mate.....have a square 3ft X 3ft, but obviously, the bigger the better....make funnel into it.......mate funnel so its low to ground. Bait them in. easy as pie

hey man this is an old poacher trap dont no wheater you can use them or not but just get a piece of paper and make it into an ice cream cone shape and stick it in the ground with a few raisins in it and around it also but a little bit of bird lime around the edges of it so the pheasants head will get stuck be careful [bANNED TEXT] taking the bird out as they can be feisty enough

As previously mentioned. When we're catching up we use a big 20 foot by 10 foot long and 6 foot high lot of checken wire mesh pannals with a pop-hole in one side. When we catch up our birds we don't have a (mesh) roof on it and we have the door open on it and we keep it like that untill the morning we want to catch but we keep feeding inside the traps so the birds can get in and out, then we put the roof on and close the door and then when we check them later on in the day there are normally a fair few pheasants in there. If you want to do this, put the roof on in the dark in the morning you want to catch and close the door. Also, you will have to not feed in that wood as much when you're catching up.

This do work, you can use yougart pots instead of paper cones. Get the birds feeding in that area for a week or so, make a hole the size of the pot in the ground.(must fit loosly) wipe around edge of pot with the lime (you can use rat glue, or make some up with holly bark or mistle toe) fill pot 3/4 full with whatever bait (dried peas, wheat, raisens etc) you are using and thats all there is to it.. Do not go far away as they will stagger off. You can remove the sticky stuff with lighter petrol or rub it with powdered charcol if you want the birds alive. ATB
