Plaster of Paris, or concrete, mixed with flour or cornmeal....it'll kill the little beasts, but isn't toxic.
I know I am alone on that front, but sticky traps work well...:o
But yeah, metal...
we had an OTTB once, We got the mare at age four.
She was one of the sweetest horses ever, but she would make ugly faces in the stall, pinned ears, bare teeth, running her teeth up the bars (like...

She has a nice walk. Be careful with the rhythm, or it might end...

well, bless your heart. :)
As I recall there was some stink about the minimum size as it was NOT a scientificly derived number, or rather one that came from a completely different research (REM sleep in ponies, for the purpose...
Maybe this hunting camp is sort of like a vision quest for him, getting away from all that noise, making sense of things.
