I learned a new one just watching the idiot tube the other day. I've been watching the Ultimate Survival Alaska series. Kinda interesting. Anyway, the team of former military guys were struggling for food. One of the guys rigged up a shotgun shell to his snowshoe with some cordage and a bungee cord and set it near a squirrel entrance. I was quite surprised to see it actually worked. Took the squirrels head clean off. I don't think they showed the snowshoe after that so I don't know if the shoe survived or not. I think it was episode 2.
If anything else it's just another idea to have in the noggin to help spur on other ideas.
