Get some pics bud,, i never really did snares much, but i have caught beaver in them. would love 2 c pics and good luck and Merry Christmas!!
Some of my favorite coyote snaring spots. I FINALLY think I got figured out the best way to hang the snares to keep them centered in the openings, and keeping the yotes from spinning them out of their way as they pass......I THINK. Like I said, I've nailed several, but still have a LOT to learn, and have a lot of misses. I can take some closeups of the actual set. Maybe somebody can tell ME if I have them hung correctly.
Trail set through a nasty thicket. I placed a few blocker sticks, and overhead branches high enough to force them to duck their head. Added a little brush to the side to keep them from side stepping it.
This is my favorite set. A double corner post. A long time ago, I nailed a board about 18" off the ground between the two posts. Just enough to make a yote duck under, but high enough to keep other critters from messing up the snare.
Here is one I found just today. It is also in a corner, so the good fences should funnel them right to this hole. It is actually a wash under the fence. You can't tell, but it is 3' deep by a foot wide. I intersects a huge wash that goes into a creek bottom. Good travel corridor for them. I hung one in there today. I may have to adjust the height of the snare a couple times to get it right. it was hard to visualize what they are doing here since its so deep.
This was an opening in a fence. I put a cattle panel in it. Actually, to re-route the deer toward my stand. I kept it up off the ground. Now the yotes are coming under it.
