Collapsible Swedish Goshawk Trap


This is a traditional style Swedish Goshawk Trap (SGT).  It is handmade, and takes up to two weeks to be made and shipped, depending on time of year.  If you're wanting to be out flying and trapping, so am I, and it will take a little longer to get this item to you.  Order during the off season and you'll get it much quicker.  This SGT is collapsible, and VERY light weight.  It can be strapped to a backpack, along with one of my collapsible bait cages, and can be carried for miles.  SGT's are extremely effective for catching Goshawks, but Goshawks usually aren't found close to a public road.  They often require a bit of a hike to get to.  Once you find an active location, this SGT can be set up in less than 10 minutes, including the bait cage, and you can quickly get out of the area.  It can also be set up where pigeons gather to feed or roost, and is very likely to attract any accipiters in the area.
