Hunting net

Je

Bodo

Plastic

It is a kind of net used for hunting or capturing small animals, especially rabbit. Earlier these were made of jute threads, however, at present; most of the nets are made of plastic ropes. This net is normally used to lay a trap in the potential area where signs of animal tracks can be observed. A group of hunters is usually responsible for chasing and luring the animal towards the trap. These kinds of animal traps are used not only to hunt for flesh, but for capturing animals which destroy crops and vegetables.
