How to Make a Rabbit Trap

  1. Step 1

    Locate a sturdy box. The box should be heavy enough that it can hold a wild rabbit. A box made out of wood or metal is the best type to use when making a rabbit trap.

  2. Step 2

    Find a stick that is thick and doesn't have any weak spots. The stick should be approximately 6" to 8" inches long. If there are any branches on the stick, remove them with a knife.

  3. Step 3

    Get a piece of string or wire that is about 18" long. Tie the piece of string to the stick. The point of connection should be about 2" from the bottom end of the stick.

  4. Step 4

    Tie the other end of the stick to a piece of food. It should be something rabbits eat, such as a carrot or a piece of celery.

  5. Step 5

    Place the trap in an area with a lot of rabbit tracks. Find a flat surface and remove any rocks or debris that may be in the way.

  6. Step 6

    Prop up the box with the stick and place the food item underneath the box. Make sure there is no slack in the string or wire.

  7. Step 7

    Test out the rabbit trap by finding a long stick and moving the food item. When you attempt to move the bait, the string or wire should pull the stick and cause the box to fall flat on the ground to trap the rabbit.
