    We have a ton of rabbits around our barn bothering the dogs and they get into the garden in the summer. We need to harvest a few.

    Anyone know how to make a good rabbit trap?

    I made a box mouse trap like the box rabbit trap in the frist link Greg posted but it was smaller and I used a metal trap door and an standerd mouse trap mounted on top.I had a string atached to the trap trigger and ran through a hole in the top of the box trap with the string tied to a stick.Bait the stick and a mouse would trip the mousetrap on top of the box which would pull out a nail holding the box trap door open= one trapped mouse.I made this trap because I had a friend who had a rattle snake in a cage and was having problems finding live mice to feed it.This trap worked great and the snake loved it.
