Consists of three parts: a slightly curved wooden bow with a twine string (lost); a mount with carved teeth; and a trigger bent almost at the right angle.
Trap bow hunting was an individual effort. The traps were checked once in several days. Most often they were set for elk, Manchurian wapiti, or otter. Body-gripping traps were used for fur-bearing animals in order not to damage their hide with an arrow.
