Snapping turtles can be trapped and their meat used in soup.turtle image by Stjepan Banovic from Fotolia.comSnapping turtles can become terrors in a lake or pond, praying on the other residents of the water, but their aggressive tendency can be turned against them with the introduction of a floating turtle trap. Once caught, the turtle meat can be used for cooking in a turtle soup. A simple homemade turtle trap can be constructed with household and fishing materials and will allow you to catch turtles without having to watch it.
.Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions.Things You'll Need:
Empty 2-liter soda bottle
Awl
Rope
Mesh bag
Metal wire
String
Hook
1
Punch a hole near the bottom of a 2-liter soda bottle.

2
Pass one end of a rope through the hole and feed the rope through until the rope comes out the mouth of the bottle, and tie a knot in the rope small enough to fit through the mouth and back into the bottle, but too large to fit through the hole in the bottom of the bottle.

3
Cut the rope to a length that exceeds by a few feet the depth of the lake where you wish to set the trap. Tie a mesh bag to the end of the rope.

4
Cut a foot long piece of wire. To create a small fixed loop at one end of the wire, make a loose loop approximately 2 inches from an end and tighten the 2 inches of wire around the longer portion of wire to hold the loop in place.

5
Pass 3 inches of wire through the eye of the hook, and twist it around the body of the hook repeatedly to secure it in place.

6
Tie 2 feet of string to the loop in the wire and around the neck of the bottle.

7
Bait the hook and fill the bag with some rocks to serve as an anchor, then place the bottle in the water where you wish to set it

How to rid yourself of Mud turtles...

Pick a nice sunny day. This is very important.

Next you will need a comfortable lawn chair.

You also need drinking water and a sun hat. Sun screen is also recomended.

Position the chair by the lake or pond where you can get a good view of the turtles. This may take more than one day to accomplish but it is very effective.
Next choose a gun that you hunt with and can shoot accurately.

Then position your hiney in the chair and wait for a turtle to surface. Then aim and shoot the turtle.

If this is to boreing take a grand child along with you to help kill the time.

Our brother Richard did this with the Moles in his yard and he used a shot gun. It was very effective.

Patsy, Larry may want to try this trap. How far do we have to take them so they will not come back.
Green Forest? Your road?
