You would think there is a lot that goes into making animal traps right? Not really. All you need pretty much is Sticks. A LOT of sticks. Sticks can be found just lying around in most places that you explore. If there are trees around then surely there are sticks lying around too.

Here is the amount of sticks you need for both Animal Traps and Fish Traps:

  • Animal Trap – 14x sticks: should be placed on flat ground.
  • Fish Trap – 25x sticks: should be placed in bodies of water.

Now, after you have collected all the sticks required. Open your inventory and open the Guide Book. Then, hold the ‘X’ key until you get to the crafting section. Here, select the Traps tab which will be at the bottom.

After that, choose the trap that you want to place, once selected, you will see a white outline of the Animal Trap on the floor or the Fish Trap in water. Find a nice little spot where you can place the Animal Trap on the ground without obstruction. Once you find it, press the ‘E’ key multiple times until all sticks are placed.

Your Animal Trap is now ready to capture animals. You can now do what you want and come back to it in some time and considering there are a lot of critters around the area you placed it, you will have one captured in it.
