Raisford sets up a few traps to hinder his capture. There is the "Maylay man catcher", "the Burmese tiger pit" ( I love these names!), and some other tree spring thing. Rainsford tries to scatter his tracks, hides in a tree and he also jumps into the ocean. He is a good swimmer (he is more or less perfect) and swims back to the castle. Zaroff's dogs don't pick up the scent because Rainsford is in the water. I think Rainsford hides in Zaroff's bedroom closet or something when Zaroff returns. That wasn't a trick though, it was just creepy.
